Here's what critics have had to say about Hesitant Alien:

"Electrifying... Gerard Way mines Brit pop, glam rock, and iconic guitar heroes for a startling new solo turn." - MTV
"The liberated-sounding, hummable Hesitant Alien is an excellent entrant, its ambitions realizing themselves in sometimes-surprising ways." - Wondering Sound
"The world needs rock stars. And Gerard has proved himself to be one of the best." - Kerrang
