Critical reception[edit]

The NewReview gave the album a 4.5 out of 5 and states "just because Stick to Your Guns sing songs of hope, don't mistake The Hope Division for a cowardly, meek album. It's energy driven, full of heart, infectious and intent on motivating you to fight the injustice of a selfish world."[1]
