Critical receptionEdit

AllMusic wrote that the album "blends the political ferocity of Rage Against the Machine with the feral, punk-metal intensity of Agnostic Front."[8] Exclaim! wrote that "most of the album's triumphs come when Stray From the Path keep the energy high, as on previous outings."[4]
