Critical reception

Brett Uddenberg of URB gave the album 4 stars out of 5, saying, "The dense lyrics and smooth delivery of Pepper, avant-garde production of Factor and short-but-sweet guest shots from Ceschi all make for a wildly-entertaining and rewarding listen."[2] Evan Sawdey of PopMatters called it "one of 2010's hidden musical gems."[4]
