Robert Christgau gave the album an A grade in his February 2009 MSN Web Consumer Guide column, describing the band as "too good to be true." whilst David Fricke declared that "Glasvegas create wall-of-distortion melodrama that draws on The Jesus and Mary Chain, Sixties girl groups and The Velvet Underground's rain-dance pulse. It makes for a compelling blend of grays - lit by singer James Allan's high, bright hurrahs." in his Rolling Stone review.
