Absolutepunk.net, who were very receptive to their debut album "Sink or Swim" welcomed the release of this EP. "The first half of Señor and the Queen features the standard catchy and fast Gaslight Anthem song. Things really start to get interesting when track three, "Say I Won’t (Recognize)," rolls around." They were very impressed by the use of tempo changes in that song and equally impressed with the bands signs of musical versatility in the slow ballad "Blue Jeans and White T-Shirts." [1] Punknews.org also liked the EP, saying "For now, Señor and the Queen should more than tide anyone over in addition to introducing the band to countless more fans. " They called "Wherefore Art Thou, Elvis?" the catchiest song on the EP and noted guitarist Alex Rosamilia's guitar skills on "Say I Won't (Recognize)." Fallon's impressive songwriting also drew further comparisons to Bruce Springsteen.[2]
