Professional ratings Review scores Source Rating Allmusic  The Independent (favorable) Piero Scaruffi 
Allmusic gave the album a four star rating, noting similarities to Pavement and Weezer, and described it as "a fairly brilliant album, combining a warm, earnest, and rustic feel with sometimes goofy experimentation". CMJ New Music Monthly described it as "an eccentric psych-pop collection". Andy Gill, writing for The Independent called it "one of the most beguiling debuts of the year...a fortuitous collision of Brian Wilson, Neil Young and the Pixies which throws out a stream of understated pop gems".
