"No More Sorrow" generally received positive reviews from critics.

I like! Very heavy too! I love the main riff a lot, I came up with something like that but damn, they done it better! I think the verses could be a little better, but the chorus makes up for it! Over all very different sorta song! Very dark sounding! A good song over all".[14]
