Recording and production[edit]

The album was produced/mixed by Grammy-nominated producer Johnny K at Groovemaster Studios in Chicago, Illinois and features additional production and mixing from Brian Virtue features new lineup and label. Soriano explains the new album, "We wanted this record to be a punch in the face. There was a lot of stuff I wanted to artistically vent about. It's a fresh start for us. We felt like having a self-titled record says it all. We hit the reset button, and there's life again. You can hear it musically. We're not going anywhere." "This album is the beginning of a brand new chapter in the world of NONPOINT... rejuvenated and full of positivity," adds Rivera. "Elias has written his most personal lyrics yet that shows the signs of endurance this band has had in our 15-year career."[1]

Allmusic 2.5/5 stars[2]

Eduardo Rivadavia of Allmusic gave the album a mixed review and has compared its sound to contemporary post-grunge bands such as Nickelback and 3 Doors Down, writing "Nonpoint's eponymous seventh album sees them moving ever closer to the corporate rock of Nickelback or 3 Doors Down, which may seem like a long way removed from their Floridian nu-metal roots alongside Limp Bizkit, Cold, and other musical crimes against humanity."[2]
