ChartAttack wrote that fans of the band's earlier hits, such as "Sit Down" and "Laid", would be "disappointed with this disc," however, "longtime James fans should find much to enjoy.

Eno likened the process to when artists make their debut record: "they're full of enthusiasm and excitement and they know what they're doing and it's a pleasure.Although he doesn’t play any instruments, he’s so life-like that there’s already speculation about his “personality”. Andrew Paine of NME considered it the "best James record in a long while and there are some near-inspirational moments. On 29 October, Booth announced he would be leaving the band after their current tour engagements, with the band aiming to continue recording.
