Critical reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
PopMatters 7/10 stars[2]

PopMatters gave the album seven out of ten stars, saying "there’s more variety and nuance here than ever before; jokey hardcore runs seamlessly into mid-tempo stomps and bad-girl anthems, all powered by Luis Cabezas’ satisfyingly fuzzy guitars and delivered with an economy (13 songs in 37 minutes) that would have made Dee Dee and the boys proud. Barefoot and Pregnant is deeply hooky, melodic, wacky and at least as delightfully bratty as 2007’s Because I’m Awesome."[2]

At Alternative Press, Jason Schreurs rated the album two out of five stars, calling the vast majority of the album is "way too predictable, feeling overly long at 13 songs"[3]
