Critical reception

The Washington Post thought that "there are still some examples of self-indulgence—opaque lyrics, overly fussy passages, odd time signatures for no good reason—but the album is dominated by eight songs where the conversational vocals, catchy melodies and Americana roots offer an accessible entry to the band's improvisatory dexterity." [6]
