Critical response[edit]

The album has received widely positive reviews in the media. Q gave it 4 stars, stating that it's "restlessly inventive and soaring melodic". Mojo also gave it 4 stars, commending it on its depth in songwriting. The Fly were taken by surprise by the album's approach to Shoegaze and how Fyfe Dangerfield has moved on in songwriting since his success with his solo album Fly Yellow Moon, giving it 7 out of 10.
