Critical Reception[]

Chris DeVille of StereoGum wrote that the album's "eight tracks of shiny assembly line pop are sometimes painfully adolescent in terms of subject matter — the vaguely Latin tropical jam “Friends” is about throwing a weekend-long rager “’cause your friend’s daddy got a real big house” (“and I swear we won’t break a thing”) — but most of them could work as singles."

Elias Leight of Rolling Stone gave the album a two-in-a-half star rating, saying that it "feels aimless, like a series of genre exercises hastily thrown together."

The Musical Hype called it "an enjoyable, respectable debut album."
