Classic Rock magazine rated the album 3.5 out of 5 stars and strongly praised the album saying “one of the most exciting records released by a new band in recent years”. Entertainment Weekly described the music in the album- “Their sound is pure, uncut '70s: big, riffy blues-rock anthems built for screaming arenas and lace-front leather pants”. Mojo music magazine, Rolling Stone and NME all rated it 3 out of 5 stars. Pitchfork heavily criticised the album rating it just 1.6 out of 10 and calling it "half-baked boomer fetishism" and an "interminable 49-minute drag” that sparked some criticisms and controversies. Some critics said that the music in the album was “borrowed” from Led Zeppelin. The album received an overall average score of 53 out of 100 on Metacritic. Some listeners liked the album calling it “phenomenal”, “flawless” and “unique” whereas some of them largely criticised the album calling it “unoriginal”. Despite all those mixed reviews, the album received good commercial success.
