The Chicago Tribune wrote: "It's a stripped-of-conventions, anti-pop stance that could sound just as calculated and empty as some elaborate pop productions, but Beat Happening imparts both quirky charm and a sense of immediacy to its material."[7] The St. Petersburg Times deemed "Collide" "one of the eeriest songs to come along in a while... It's eerie in a playful, sickly pretty way."[10]
