As an EP, Pictures of Losing Sleep is a fantastic showcase piece for the band. It displays everything they embody with loud, up-tempo rock, fantastic instrumental work, vocals that are brimming over with attitude and songs that'll blow your socks off.” James of MyRandomJukebox.com declared that “As a grunge rock fan, ‘Pictures of Losing Sleep’ EP is definitely all killer no filler for me."
