Critical response

Writing in Punk News, John Gentile said, "The wilder songs, like Audiowhore where bassist Matt Gentling just gets completely down, stomping around like a T-rex, are nearly berserk, with the band approaching a Stooges-type thrash. What Did You Expect? could pass for Fugazis wilder side. Gentling just goes nuts on the bass, which is wild. Likewise, the mid-tempo songs like "Freezing Point" have an inherent urgency."
