Critical reception for the album was generally mixed. Reviewing the album for Clash magazine , writer Steve Harris commented that "they haven't lost their knack for writing an infectious tune, and the album packs more punch than their previous long-player" and that Maxïmo Park could "become one of the summer's essential bands." Culturedeluxe also gave a largely positive review to the album.
Q magazine awarded the album 3 out of 5 stars, and commented that "Once again, Smith's lyrical camera is in macro mode, scrutinising love's tiny details....Smith's eccentricities still elevate Maxïmo Park above the guitar-pop herd." Paul Smith told Drowned in Sound that "In Another World (You Would've Found Yourself by Now)" is "about feeling self-righteous even though we all have similar primal impulses."
