Critical reception

AllMusic wrote that "the visceral drive is there, but there's little substance to tunes like '5' and 'Method' to give it staying power." [1] The Telegram & Gazette called the album "a confident, hard-hitting combination of bombast and melodicism." [9] The Vancouver Sun wrote: "Weirdly enough for such a young crew of ambitious rockers, there's a plodding, lifelessness at work here." [10] The Providence Journal wrote that "the band's diversity of styles can hamper the effort when no prevailing sound emerges ... But all the variety has its rewards." [11]
