    The album sounds like Liturgy tried to make a mathcore record, put two and two together and got three. [7 May 2011, p.52]

    They're actually just listless, ambling nonsense. [30 Aug 2014, p.52]

    Th songs are reductive, redundant, unimaginative, and dull. [26 May 2012, p.54]

    • 58 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    This glossy but bland procession is likely to be a weakening experience. [14 Jul 2012, p.53]

    • 57 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The result is a collection of undignified Pierce The Veil-lite songs that are fitted with all the bells and whistles, but absolutely none of the quality that makes that band successful. [8 Jul 2017, p.52]

    • 20 Critic Score
    This Means War and Bottoms Up are such generic rock "anthems" that they could have been releases in any decade since the '80s. The lyrics, meanwhile, seem to date from the '70s, possibly the 1870s. [3 Dec 2011, p.51]

    If Not Now, When? is the work of a group who in their attempts to sound all grown-up come across as being worn-down and played out. [16 Jul 2011, p.50]
    • Kerrang!
    • 48 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    It's too forgettable to be offensive. [23 Nov 2013, p.53]

    This is more Beige Flag--and would have been more aptly titled Why... [30 Nov 2013, p.54]
