AllMusic reviewer Stewart Mason felt that Pottymouth "is about the early-'90s indie scene, about the D.I.Y. life in the post-Nirvana age where it seemed like anything could happen."[3] Prominent music critic Robert Christgau praised the songs "Throway" and "No You Don't".[4] In January 1994, Spin placed Pottymouth in its list of 10 Best Albums of the Year You Didn't Hear.[5]
