Critical reception[edit]

AllMusic4.5/5 stars[1]
Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic commented: "A terrific rock & roll record, full of big, dumb riffs, anthemic singalong choruses, and songs that are impossible to get out of your head. Because Slade's music was so deliberately dumb, they tend to be either forgotten or dismissed, but Get Yer Boots On proves they made some of the most addictive, tuneful hard rock of the '70s - it's blue-collar glitter, as primal as AC/DC and catchy as bubblegum pop. Anybody who loves loud guitars and humongous hooks will find this irresistible, and this long-overdue U.S. compilation is the best place to discover how great this band really was."[1]
