Upon the album's release, SPIN named Forever Sounds its Album of the Week, awarding it an 8 of 10 rating. Reviewer Jason Gubbels wrote, "The distinct pleasures of Forever Sounds remain those of all five preceding Wussy albums — a crack songwriting duo detailing adult life’s ambiguities with vivid language amid a terrific rhythm section’s unapologetic alt-slop."[5] Robert Christgau gave the album an A- and described it as "the big-guitar record I've been expecting from my favorite band since Strawberry."[6]
