4/5 stars[5]

Awarding the album four and a half stars from Jesus Freak Hideout, Scott Fryberger states, "Slave To Nothing is the result of Fit For A King's hard work and dedication to their craft, and it's one of the best hardcore albums to have been released in an otherwise seemingly lackluster year for Christian hardcore."[4] Dylan Minson, rating the album four stars at Jesus Freak Hideout, writes, "This album employs quite a bit of chugging, which tends to get old on this record, but doesn't entirely detract from the quality."[5] Giving the album four stars for Indie Vision Music, Brody Barbour describes, "The band has continued to mature and push the envelope on their sound rather than sit idle and rake in some quick cash."[3] Anthony Ibarra, indicating in an 8.3 out of ten review by Christ Core, says, "Fit For a King continues to reinvent themselves and the boundaries of their genre."[2]
