On Metacritic, the album gained an average score of 65, based on 10 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews."

Billboard called it "a delightful debut from a group that cannot be easily pigeonholed, and is worth paying attention to."

Allmusic wrote: "Ultimately, 5 Seconds of Summer have crafted an album of songs that stick in your head like neon bubblegum on a hot summer sidewalk."

The Boston Globe wrote that "the lyrics leave no room for subtext--“Good girls,” goes the kickiest song’s thesis, “are bad girls that haven’t been caught”--and the gleaming instrumentation sounds untouched by human hands."
