The album has, like many previous Cornershop releases, received positive reviews, with its interesting blend of dance and Punjabi music particularly popular. When the track Topknot was released in 2004, the late John Peel, a fan of the band, was said to have "played it to death.Uncut were particularly praiseworthy, commenting "[It] isn't just great music, it fuses disparate cultures with such joyous irreverence that, for 40 inspirational minutes, entire notions of national borders and racial divides cease to exist".Mojo said "Kaur came to sing here through chance meetings and filmic, serendipitous intervention from a London cabbie. If this tale ever reaches the cinema, an effervescent soundtrack is ready and waiting". The newspaper Daily Mirror described the album as "a striking blend of dance-crazed hip-hop grooves and trilling, thrilling Punjabi folk. It also introduces the sensational Bubbley Kaur. The previously unrecorded New Delhi-born, Lancashire-raised housewife is possibly the greatest natural new singer you'll hear all year".
Uncut placed it at number 48 on its list of the "Top 50 Albums of 2011".
