  • Rolling Stone named the album one of "The 10 Best Albums of 2012", saying: "Vancouver kids bang through ten bursts of female punk fury in 19 minutes, with Mish Way's hungry yowl leading the charge. Nothing fancy here – you get thrashed, you get bashed, you notice strange bruises all over your shins, then as soon as it's over you press play again." (Rolling Stone)[12]
  • NOW Magazine report that the album’s "ferocious mix of snarling hooks and hardcore urgency (together, the 10 songs clock in at under 20 minutes) found sympathetic ears at publications as big as Rolling Stone, and suddenly White Lung started getting invites to festivals like NXNE and Pitchfork."[13]
