Critical receptionEdit

The single landed at #36 on Paste's list of the "50 Best Grunge Songs"; Paste called the LP "a stripped-down, gut-churning collection of gritty guitars and vox."[5] The Stranger wrote that the LP, and its follow-up, Dayglo, "remain psychedelic twin towers" in the catalog of Sub Pop.[6]
