AllMusic Review by

Set Your Goals may not know yet whether they wanna be hardcore or pop-punk, but they show early promise when it comes to funny and/or silly titles like the one-minute almost-song "How 'Bout No, Scott?" and the more diverse "Goonies Never Say Die!" on Reset. Mind you, neither title has a damned thing to do with their standard issue emo lyrics, but, along with the equally well-thought-out "Latch Key" the latter track is at least rather compelling musically, for contrasting the band's atonal/melodious and hard/soft dynamics to great effect.
