All Music writer, Gregory Heaney rated the album four out of five stars stating that it “shows that they’ve honed their skills, creating a beautifully crafted, well-constructed album that feels like more than merely a collection of songs, but rather an album full of soaring builds and heartbreaking collapses that lends credence to the notion that the best things come to those who wait.”
