Discovering the Waterfront received generally mixed to positive reviews. Rick Anderson of Allmusic gave the album 4 stars out of 5 and commented on how the album sounded "remarkably mature [...] for a band that has only been together for a few years."[1] Drowned in Sound reviewer Brian E. Jemimah panned the album and said that the album sounded exactly the same to When Broken Is Easily Fixed (2003). He wrote: "There is some unremarkable, bog-standard drumming – always the necessary spine of a shit band – and some over-nurtured songs that have so many catchy soaring choruses (peppered with screamo ‘moments’) for The Kids to sing along to that it can be nothing but dull. Add some disgustingly tacked-on strings half the way through and you have more [sic] than enough reasons to press eject."[2]
