AllMusic
wrote: “Fugazi made some changes, employing more herk-a-jerk
rhythms and dub influences, and changing up the lyrical focus… With Steady
Diet, Fugazi get more economical and less forceful. Though not nearly as neck-
gnawing as Repeater, Steady Diet still packs a sizable wallop, but with slower
tempos and less deliberate instrumentation. As always, a poison-tipped dart
is pointed at the government, media, and major entertainment outlets.
