Critic score distribution:

  2. Negative: 4 out of 17
  1. Even as a record of adequate, vaguely politicized mook-rock, it mostly falls flat, whether by lazy lyrics or some uninspired drumming from Galactic's Stanton Moore, who adds plenty of percussive touches like the judicious cowbell of 'Clap For the Killers' but sinks more straightforward tracks such as 'The Oath' like a stone.
  2. The blithe, lyrical approach is misplaced in the context of Morello’s domineering, effects-laden guitar sound.
  3. An attempt to relive the RATM era that falls far, far short of the bar. Save your money and go and listen to the real deal instead.
  4. Several spins of Street Sweeper Social Club reveals the weaknesses inherit in this duo’s style. While Boots is mostly on point with his critical lyricism, he lacks a punchy energy that is required to match Morello’s heavier riffs.
