Reception[edit]

Alan Ranta of Tiny Mix Tapes gave the album 4 stars out of 5 and described it as "[Edit's] unite-after-war album, using the unmistakable aggression of U.S. club hip-hop beats as a reflection of the world's continually spiraling political climate."[3] Matt Earp of XLR8R gave the album an 8 out of 10, calling it "one of the best party albums of the year".[4]

On November 5, 2007, the title track was listed by KEXP-FM as the "Song of the Day".[6]
