Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[4]

Bake Butler from Allmusic described the album as "getting hit by a semi, kicked in the teeth, and thrown down three flights of stairs all at once. [...] In a way unlike almost any other, they scream in your face fairly emotional, damaging lyrics, while breaking the musical boundaries, as well as your eardrums."[4]
