Critical Reception[]

Allmusic wrote: "It's the kind of splashy, impassioned, infectious record that could make Nikka Costa a star -- maybe not on the level of Prince or Madonna, maybe more like Lenny Kravitz, but a star nonetheless."

Billboard called the album "equal parts soul, funk, rock and blues, "can'tneverdidnothin'" continues to showcase the fiery, audacious style first heard on Nikka Costa's 2001 debut."

Rolling Stone described the album as "understated pop funk that breeds cheap thrills but not enough songs" while Entertainment Weekly described it as "full of screeching, hollering, and contrived "yo' mama" jive talk."
