Critical reception[edit]

PopMatters wrote that "Delta Rae needs better material to show off what makes them special and distinctive."[5] Indy Week called the album "an embarrassment of expectations and enthusiasms, where musical and lyrical platitudes dovetail for 48 overwrought and unrelenting minutes."[6]
