Writing for Allmusic, music critic Jeff Burger wrote of the album; "...the ten wonderful, self-penned songs here are wholly fresh and original, both musically and lyrically. Every cut sounds like an instant classic; and, like the songs of, say, the Band, they seem timeless, as if they've been around for ages... One of the very best albums of 2000, and one destined to be played for years to come."[1]
