AllMusic awarded the album 4.5 stars, its review by S. T. Erlewine saying, "Working from the same acid-jazz foundation that informed their previous records, the band has added slightly ironic flourishes of lounge music and movie soundtracks while beginning to develop a sophisticated sense of pop craft, largely modeled after Steely Dan." On the other hand, Gill Whyte from NME rated the record 1/10, saying "From the middle-class funk of Steely Dan meets The Kids From Fame, to the 'hilarious' '60s B-movie soundtracks, complete with Tijuana brass, Corduroy display an embarrassingly indulgent use of irony and ability to tell everyone else's gags very badly indeed. Roll over, Tony Ferrino."
