|Drowned in Sound||(7/10)|
The album received a mixed reception.
John Bush, reviewing for Allmusic, awarded the album a rating of four out of five, stating "Juwan is even more passionate than before" (in reference to previous album, YoYoYoYoYo), although does also state that "there's less of a party atmosphere", tempering this somewhat by stating "there's still plenty of rhyming about girls and substances backed by martial snares and metronome bass claps". Drowned in Sound reviewer Philip Bloomfield commented on the "lack of cohesion and continuity" when compared to the début album; however did find that this album was also a "bold, brash, varied, slightly confused dance record with flashes of hip-hop" and that "Spank Rock probably couldn't make a boring record if they tried". Pitchfork's Carrie Battan called the track "Nasty" (feat. Big Freedia) "the highlight" of the album and awarded it the "Best New Track" designation.
Nate Patrin, also reviewing for Pitchfork, was particularly critical, stating "his flow is either too rushed or too buried in the mix to jump out"; and that "his rhymes are occasionally vaguely political, sometimes intentionally disingenuous, but never confident enough to tell you just where he stands"; finding Spank Rock "ambivalently unserious" in this album, as opposed to a "smartassed joker on the debut". PopMatters mirrored this, stating "Everything Is Boring sounds very uninspired, very trapped in its moment, very everything YoYoYoYoYo succeeded in being the opposite of".
