AllMusic/Dave Connolly wrote: “Although mired in a rut of merely “good” albums,
Sparks had offered occasional glimpses of their old greatness on each, fanning the dim
hope that they might climb again to previous heights. The faithful were rewarded with
Angst in My Pants, the first album in years that puts their pop genius to good use.”
