Reception and Legacy
Professional ratings Review scores Source Rating Allmusic link Pitchfork Media (8.6/10)link Sputnikmusic link Stylus Magazine (B+) link Tiny Mix Tapes link
Pitchfork Media's founder Ryan Schreiber praised the album's more sentimental sound, writing "But metamorphosis can be a beautiful thing, and like the butterfly retains a part of the caterpillar, Change retains a part of the pre-mutated Dismemberment Plan. You see, they're still the same band they always were. They're just prettier now." Ted Alvarez of Allmusic also commended the album's new sound.
Michael O' Brien of Popmatters , on the other hand, was less positive about the album's new sound, writing "For anyone who loved Emergency & I, or any of the Dismemberment Plan's other two records, Change sounds like The Dismemberment Plan on Quaaludes." O' Brien also called the album "...an enjoyable record, a necessary record in the evolution of the band, but far from an essential listen."
