Kerrang! 3/5 stars[4]

"At a point in their career where many bands would consider desperate changes, Breed 77 have opted to stay on the same track for album number five, writing music specifically for their existing fan base," commented Kerrang critic Steve Beebee. "Not much of a challenge for anyone familiar with them, but still good stiff," he concluded, giving the album a 3 out of 5K's rating.[4]
