AllMusic called the album an "alternative rock gem" and "one of Lunch's greatest achievements."[1] Record Collector called it "an essential document for darkside dog-walkers, as both a reaffirmation of Howard's innovatory visions and snapshot of one of the last century's great damage-wallowing couples in fetid creative union."[5]
