Life Left to Go received highly favorable reviews from critics. Tom Spinelli of Melodic.net, who gave the album 4.5 stars out of 5, declared that "if you are looking for the modern rock album of the year, this may be a top contender in your collection",[4] as "SatefySuit releases their masterful, epic debut Life Left To Go with enormous melodic power".[4] Alternative Addiction described Life Left to Go as "easily the best debut album so far in 2008",[3] praising both frontman Doug Brown as "an impressive vocalist...[who] absolutely gets what it takes to make a great song--good melody and good lyrics",[3] and Dave Garofolo, whose guitar work he called "original and unorthodox...[He is] what makes SafetySuit unique".[3]
