Roch Parisien from allmusic awarded 3 out of 5 stars and judged:
"While new tracks peal off some pleasant moments, songs flashing the group's trademark lyrical wit generally tend toward musical vaporware, while those revealing an occasional glimmer of instrumental creativity go nowhere fast on the songwriting."
"While new pieces bring a few pleasant moments, the songs with the lyrical spirit typical of the group are mostly nothing but empty musical promises, while the pieces that reveal a glimmer of instrumental creativity quickly run into nothing when they are being written."
