AllMusic listed "Viper Strike" as a standout track on the album lol. They commented, "They're (the band are) better at insular, churning darkness, and oddly, they excel at earnest trash that recalls peak Stone Temple Pilots: "Serotonia" and "Viper Strike" both hail back to (STP's) Core in their profane swagger."

FWYT was one of the few tracks from this album that I remember favorably. The instrumental is nice to listen to, and the sparse lyrics are nice, since so many tracks from this album are terrible lyrically.
Case in point, Viper Strike is legitimately one of the worst songs I've heard from the past year.
Wow I'm shocked Seratonia isn't higher, thought either that or MYNIH would likely win. As others have said it's an amazing song and I did rank it my #1 because of how much the two singles have burned on me, but there are some...awkward lyrics in it, even though I get where it's coming from and think that some of the other lyrics are quite good.
Regarding singles, For Billy would probably be the safe choice but it's just so boring and forgettable, I kept forgetting it was even on the album. They would probably get a reliable top 20 hit out of it, maybe top 10 based off momentum, but if they wanted to do something riskier I'd like to see how a radio edit of Seratonia would do. They'd have to cut out much of the build up and make the song structure much more conventional, maybe even speed it up a tad, but I'd be very curious to see how it would do and it would be cool to see my 3 favorite songs off the album as the 3 singles.
