Jay Balfour of Pitchfork described Goodbye & Good Riddance as "an adolescent breakup record that is equal parts endearing and grating", praising the album's sound: "his heart-on-his-sleeve coping sounds both ingratiating and grating. In that way at least, he's bottled up sad sap adolescence remarkably well."[1] Bryan Hahn of HipHopDX criticized the lyricism for being "without any focus on creative stanzas or convincing in-depth first-person experiences." He later said Higgins has potential to grow as an artist, remarking "Juice's best potential songwriting is yet to come" and "Juice feels willing to keep things interesting for the sake of art and is backed by a moderate understanding (and interest) in varied melodies and cadences."[11]
