Critical ReceptionEdit

Upon its release, "Sick Boy" received a heavily mixed reception from music critics.

AllMusic's Neil Z. Young positively said of the album: "Compared to their 2017 official debut, the Chainsmokers' sophomore album, Sick Boy, is more introspective, thoughtful and emotional. It's also a vast improvement on the often precious (and, frankly, boring) EDM-pop of Memories…Do Not Open."

He went on to state that: "At the heart of it all, this set is dark, sometimes exciting, and a step in the right direction for the immensely popular but critically maligned duo. World-weariness and a troubled heart suit them well and managed to do some good on Sick Boy."

In sharp contrast, Laura Snapes of The Guardian gave the album a very negative review, calling it "a torrent of spew-inducing self-pity."
