Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars [1]

Writing for Allmusic, music critic Mark Deming wrote of the album "If Credit in Heaven has a flaw, it's that its reach sometimes exceeds its grasp; while none of the songs are bad, some are a more immediately memorable than others... an under-appreciated milestone of the Midwestern new wave that awaits rediscovery."[1]
