Critical Reception[edit]

Reviews of Boxriff were generally positive, with the track music stated as "stoner rock with gargantuan riffs and trippy sonics"[1] as well as appreciation for the live set music. Note was also made that the "boogie metal" of the album was the most accessible for TAB's music, opening it to a larger audience.[2]
