Ultimately, Wiped Out! comes off as a "see what sticks" effort; it's slick and polished, but hits varying levels of satisfaction throughout.

‘Wiped Out!’ is a fine wine in a sea of vodka Red Bulls, and having successfully mixed pop, rock and hip-hop together, it seems like they have finally defined their sound as a band.

AllMusic
As the black & white album cover illustration of a palm tree on a beach implies, this is surf music for street goths and beach bums with bad attitudes.

Billboard
The songs are sometimes more moody than memorable.

The warmth of "Sweater Weather" and the rest of the Neighbourhood's debut album is gone on Wiped Out!, replaced by a ponderous kind of cool.

The Neighbourhood are a band that just missed the final embers of the rock era, So unlike their UK Counterparts The Arctic Monkeys, The Neighbourhood are testing the waters of what it means to be a rock band in the 21st Century when the majority of its fans, listen to Justin Bieber and The 1975.

Apesar de alguns erros notáveis cometidos na produção do álbum (principalmente nas últimas faixas), "Wiped Out!" é um bom álbum e definitivamente vale a pena ouvi-lo. Entretanto, ainda espero o álbum perfeito da banda.

I do really like the sound they went with here, but again I don't think they do enough with it to make a lasting impression. It's all the same reverbed, echoing guitars and claps with sexy-whining vocals on top, with some cool breakdowns here and there. Also the lyrics are quite terrible, but not so bad that you can't ignore them.

Forgettable, but alright while it's on.
