Kerrang! 4.5/5 stars[2]

The album plunged into obscurity, despite positive responses from reviewers. "I won't waste space with their history, since I need all the space to praise them", a fanzine reviewer wrote.[citation needed] Paul Miller of Kerrang! claimed that "Quality of this sort his hard to find" and gave Atomic Winter KKKK½.[2] Domestic reviews were also favourable: "Without doubt one of the most interesting bands" was Tore Lund's verdict on the tabloid GT[citation needed], whereas Fia Persson of Expressen found the album to be "surprisingly fast and good".[citation needed]
