A reviewer at
Allmusicdescribed the album as "an enjoyable combination of new wave and bratty, goofball punk", with the song "My Best Friend's Girl" pegged as "setting the tone for the record" and showing "the band's ability to earnestly incorporate the diverse catchiness of new wave that makes it so true blue".
