Mike DaRonco of Allmusic commented that the EP "[brings] out more of the grimmer perspectives on lost love. Not that all three members are diagnosed manic depressives — they just have a more honest approach to relating to all those who just got dumped. For Your Lungs Only captures these moments perfectly without crossing into the territory of feeling sorry for themselves". He also noted the influence of the Descendents, Jawbreaker, Crimpshrine, and They Might Be Giants on the EP.
