The Guardian gave the album a two star rating, calling it "a deliberately dated trawl of seventies and eighties electro" and that the album "gets bogged down in exactly the same swamp of tedium that mired the original work of Herbie Hancock et al. It's clever and knowledgeable, but highly unsatisfying."[1] AllMusic gave the album a two and half star rating out of five, "much more subdued than the usual techno-racket µ-Ziq is known for" and compared the album to Paradinas first Slazenger album which "explored early-'80s electro -- that's all here as well (and it sounds just as dated)." The review concluded that "It makes one wonder whether an artist can be experimental and enjoyable when using all this cringe-worthy synth, but in the end, Paradinas pulls it off."[2]
