In their second cover story on the band, Billboard noted, “5SOS is an anomaly in 2015: a Generation Z guitar band that sells records.…On Sounds Good Feels Good, the guitars thunder more…” Alternative Press, which awarded the album four stars, observed, “Sounds Good Feels Good delivers….The album finds its crux in the first single, ‘She’s Kinda Hot,’ with the triumphant line in the chorus: ‘We are the kings and queens of the new broken scene.’” Kerrang hailed it as a “killer new album” and gave it four K’s, noting, “Opener ‘Money’ explodes into one of the biggest anthems of the year.”
