Critical receptionEdit

Jackson Howard of Pitchfork gave a mixed review of the EP saying "Questionable sequencing otherwise plagues I Used to Know Her. The 15 collected songs of Volume 1 and Volume 2 bled into one another, a collage of intimate snapshots inside the H.E.R. orbit," and "The growing pains are evident. But at least H.E.R. is venturing into new subject matter."[5]
