Reception

Christian Taylor 90FM said of the album: "On the whole, the album carries hints of Tame Impala’s recent album, Lonerism, and adds a whole lot of swagger. Fans of Pond, the Velvet Underground, and Lou Reed should find plenty to love in this phenomenal piece of retro-rock work."[13] Austin Trunick of Under The Radar said: "The record taps into old AM hippie rock territory ... Motown, soul, acid rock ... and even classic French pop."[14]
