Rolling Stone compared the album favorably to Poster and Robb's 2011 tribute album, Rave On Buddy Holly.[3] NPR's Stephen Thompson also compared this album and the producers' prior Buddy Holly tribute, saying they both "possess both a sense of cohesion and a reasonably high hit rate", giving highest praise to The New Pornographers' "perfect power-pop throwback" cover of "Think About Me", and noting that first part of the album was more pop in spirit than the "hazier, more dance-driven musings in the second".[4]
