Khalil Hegarty of The Age reviewed Burn City where Pegz "gives his all, but never sounds like he's overdoing it."[3] Hegarty elaborated, that the album is "his acceptance of the glory and a motivational speech for the team that is the local scene."[3] Toby Walker rated it at 7.5/10 and opined that "[he] holds it down tight in his area of expertise, being the rhyme and flow department that he is."[5] Pegz described his album, "my music isn't cryptic... There's a bit of social commentary there and there are some political themes."[6]
