The reviews for the album have generally been positive and by far, most critics have given it 3/5.

Sean Reid at Alter The Press! gave the album a score of 3/5, stating:

Overall ‘A Little Faster’ is an impressive effort from the Orlando four-piece and it serves its purpose and achieves its aim of being an efficient, clean record with songs that will be played on repeat throughout the summer months. Whilst at the same time there are glimpses of an angry, young band that put all their effort into writing the best songs possible, simply because they are passionate and care about the music they are making.

There For Tomorrow have a great formula for success; catchy, radio-friendly hooks, a smooth, clean image and a passion for writing great songs.
