  • Pitchfork gave the album a rating of 2.3 out of 10, calling the sisters “self-impressed” and accusing them of being more interested in transcending genres than creating actual songs. They continue to bash the sisters, describing the lyrics as “lazy, meandering nothings”. After the review was published, however, Sterogum founder and former Pitchfork-contributor Brandon Stousy revealed on his personal blog that he had originally been tasked with writing the Pitchfork review of the album, and gave it a very favorably high score, claiming the review was pulled at the last minute and replaced with Mark Hogan's score of 2.3.

  • Tiny Mix Tapes found the album more tolerable, giving it a 3 out of 5. In the review, they give CocoRosie credit for being brave enough to produce such an album, saying they “don’t just push the envelope; they spit-seal that shit, shove it in the mailbox, and harass their friendly local carrier until he’s scared NOT to deliver their message."
  • Allmusic gave the album a 4/5, saying that they find Cocorosie's “fractured fairy tale sound still surprising three albums into their career."
  • Drowned in sound gave the album a 9/10, calling it “their most fully realized, well-produced and melody rich record yet."
  • The Guardian gave it a 2/5, saying that Cocorosie “seem to have no interest in developing these fragments of ideas into a coherent artistic whole.”
  • Sputnik Music gave the album a 4/5, calling it “pop music as it would sound from some demented far away place.”
  • BuzzSugar gave it a 3/5, claiming that the album is “well worth a listen despite its flaws.”

Famous quotes containing the word reception:

    He’s leaving Germany by special request of the Nazi government. First he sends a dispatch about Danzig and how 10,000 German tourists are pouring into the city every day with butterfly nets in their hands and submachine guns in their knapsacks. They warn him right then. What does he do next? Goes to a reception at von Ribbentropf’s and keeps yelling for gefilte fish!
    Billy Wilder (b. 1906)

    I gave a speech in Omaha. After the speech I went to a reception elsewhere in town. A sweet old lady came up to me, put her gloved hand in mine, and said, “I hear you spoke here tonight.” “Oh, it was nothing,” I replied modestly. “Yes,” the little old lady nodded, “that’s what I heard.”
    Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)

    To aim to convert a man by miracles is a profanation of the soul. A true conversion, a true Christ, is now, as always, to be made by the reception of beautiful sentiments.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
