AllMusic Review by

After Quit While You're Ahead's first song, "Kicked in the Head," it's pretty obvious where the rest of the album is going -- each song highlights a single, gritty, repetitive riff, and a single, screamed melody. The simplicity and repetition give the songs the potential to grow extremely annoying, but the lo-fi, Dinosaur Jr.-esque feel of the production keeps them from sounding like poorly written rock; in the end, the tracks sound like the hard-rock parodies on Ween's early albums ("You Fucked Up," etc.) Julia Cafritz of Pussy Galore and Free Kitten is also featured.
