"Read Between the Lines," the title track and first single off the album, was named iTunes Single of the Week at the time of the album's release.Billboard's album review refers to the band as a G-rated version of the Go-Go's but with the same "distinctive individual looks, spunky stage presence and monster riffs". The review calls Avril Lavigne the band's "closest cousin", but with more punk energy, and says that "the act's rock rings harder and truer than Miley Cyrus." The review by Allmusic says "the five girls pull it off with panache, finishing the songs off with a 2000s teen pop gloss, or sometimes a '90s girl-ska-punk". Other reviews were not as favorable. While comparing the band's sound to No Doubt, lead singer Shelby Cobra's vocals are called "limited" and on the "worst squeaky side of Gwen Stefani."
