The Chicago Tribune called the album "stark, acoustic existentialism accented by feedback guitars."[8] The Village Voice deemed it an "obscure [gem] of 1960s-inspired, punkily energetic, whispery songcraft."[9] The Cincinnati Enquirer considered it to be "one of the most subtly psychedelic albums of the 1990s."[10]
