Jon Caramanica of The New York Times called it "a peppy album about the tragic pleasures of wallowing in poor choices. [...] The balance of good cheer and dark clouds is partly in the arrangements — V comprises exceedingly bright songs verging on true pop-punk. It’s probably the cleanest-sounding Wavves album to date."[9] Consequence of Sound's Collin Brennan felt the album "visceral and downright volatile [...] a self-assured record penned by a songwriter who’s anything but sure of himself, and that dynamic shines right through the curtain of fuzz."[2] The 405's William Tomer commented that "one who chooses to listen to the album in full--an exceedingly easy task to do repeatedly given the immediate appeal of the record--will be treated to one of the most down-to-earth takes on what it is like to be actively battling your demons, internal or otherwise."[10] Jon Dolan of Rolling Stone felt "their songs have never been sharper, brighter or more confident."[5]
