ReceptionEdit

AllMusic gave the recording three out of five stars and in its review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine praises the band for feeling like it is having fun and including humor in the lyrics. He writes that the album is "unassuming, good-natured, and melodic hard-pop".[2] In CMJ New Music Monthly, Meredith Ochs gave the album a mixed review, saying that it followed from Gin Blossoms' work and expanded it by adding stadium rock guitar but "although Wilson's melodies pull the songs together, the hooks don't really stick without great lyrics to hang on".[3]
