Of the "queer alt-rockers Imperial Teen," one New York Times reviewer wrote that "though every song on the album is good, the best are the ones about homosexuality ("Butch"), Kurt Cobain ("You're One") and complete nonsense ("Imperial Teen")".
Imperial Teen's latest album, Now We Are Timeless, was released in 2019. Schwartz remains active with both bands.
