Reception

Reception for "Money Is Not Our God" was generally positive. Ned Raggett of Allmusic praised Geordie Walker's guitar performance as "better than ever" and the song itself "rips along with the sheer fire of 1980 intact." He credited Coleman's vocals as an "opening rampage" and that the group "collectively allows for the later abilities of the members and incorporates that into the performances."[2]
