Celebrity Cafe had this to say about the album, "The group, who has performed in a wide circuit, everywhere from Bonnaroo to Ultra Music Fest, demonstrates that once again you don’t need words to convey strong emotions. The mood and intense aura off this compilation is like a small, invisible projectile shooting right into the crowd dissembling all bad feelings and negativity off into the distance."
