"Mix Magazine," the leading magazine for the professional-recording and sound-production technology industry, gave the release a glowing review. "Fifteen seconds into their superb new release, there’s no doubt The Smithereens are back,” wrote veteran reviewer Barbara Schultz. "This record is full of catchy, well-crafted tracks, defined by those familiar guitar sounds and rhythms, and DiNizio’s deep, expressive voice.
