The album has been met with mixed reviews. It received a three-and-a-half star rating from Todd Sterling of Allmusic, who said that the album was "slickly produced" and that it "sticks to the well-worn formula of the group's previous releases," but said that it had "every color of the musical rainbow."[1] Sterling cited "Your Last" as a standout, calling it a "lump-in-the-throat masterpiece."[1]
