John Metzger of The Music Box wrote, "Much like the group's first single 'Dice with the Universe', much of its new self-titled release straddles a line between breezy pop, folksy blues, and classic rock.... the band occasionally strikes gold while delivering a pleasing set of material, anchored by one of the finest drummers in the history of rock 'n' roll."[3]

William Ruhlmann wrote on Allmusic, "Trichromes guitarist Ralph Woodson and such guests as Pete Sears and Neal Schon do fine by [Hunter's lyrics], creating songs that sound like they could have fit into the Dead's repertoire. And the band's jamming style is also reminiscent of the Dead...."[2]
