Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[6]

In a review, Richie Unterberger (AllMusic) writes that "Spain succeed at evoking a brooding, late-night atmosphere", and appreciates the "seductive drones (with lots of languorous guitar/basslines and shuffle drums) and melancholy, pensive songs." However, he adds that "It's a bit monotonous all at once", and gives the album three stars.
