Reviews of the album have been generally positive. Pitchfork Media gave the album 8/10, stating "it's when Shy Child's grip on songcraft grows extremely tenuous that their music becomes interesting, even thrilling". Drowned in Sound expressed similar praise: "And that’s the irony, y’see: the noise did stop. But, by god, you wish it hadn’t."
