AllMusic3/5 stars[2]
Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic rated the album three out of five stars and states: "(The band) unapologetically embraces their middle age, excising any remaining hints of the raucous rock band of yore and splitting their time between power ballads and insistent anthems."[2]
