Critical response

Commenting on the rhythm section Patrick Keeler (drums) and Jack Lawrence (bass), Prefix Magazine commented that "their propulsive rhythm single-handedly saves first single 'Salute Your Solution'."[5] The Metro Times said the single "featuremonster guitar riffs that wouldn't sound out of place on a Free or early Aerosmith record."[6] This song was number 42 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2008.[7]
