Marius Meyer wrote for on June 16, 2009: “ The BossHoss don't make it difficult to like them even on Do or Die. It is more difficult to find new words for what it always is after all the concerts and releases: rousing music that is really fun and doesn't get boring. Despite the high frequency with which The BossHoss bring their music to the people - be it on tour or on CD - they manage not to become monotonous or to repeat themselves. And that alone is a really good achievement. Whoever liked The BossHoss so far will like this album too. An album to open up new target groups is also not Do or Die, but that should be a worry that the band from Berlin, Mississippi probably doesn't have to deal with so quickly. "
