Allmusic.com gave Vulture Culture this review:
Vulture Culture’s theme is another in which the fallacy of humankind is front and center. This time Parsons’ message concerns the fact that everyone lives in a parasitic society, where it’s every man for himself. Those who can’t fend for themselves simply won’t survive in a world where the kindness of the human spirit is rapidly deteriorating. …The instrumental “Hawkeye” adds life and contrast to the album at just the right time. The most appealing song, “Days Are Numbers (The Traveller)” with vocalist Chris Rainbow at the helm, combines simplicity with a timeless chorus making for a truly beautiful ballad.
