Critical reception[edit]

After their years-long separation, Bratmobile returned to the punk rock scene with a new album that was welcomed in Rolling Stone for showing that "the Brat spirit was fully intact".[2] Other writers noted the positive influence of the band's maturation: rock journalist Maria Raha wrote that the album represents "evidence of the band's evolution from both a musical and an ideological standpoint".[3] In Trouser Press, Ira Robbins praised the new material for proving "Bratmobile's ability to transcend amateurishness without abandoning the unfettered emotional freedom that came with it."[4]
