It is one of the few albums to not receive an actual numerical review from Pitchfork Media, instead initially receiving a rating of "U.2", with a middling review citing its ambitious nature while stating "Do You Like Rock Music? doesn't fail miserably... but disappoints gently." After a change to their site layout and rating presentation, that rating now appears as 8.2, though the review itself has not changed.[8]
