Critical ReceptionEdit

James Christopher Monger from Allmusic gave the album 3-1/2 stars out of a possible five, commenting: "Dream with Me hits all of the right notes, though there are few surprises or big moments to be found ... resulting in a solid "official" debut from a rising star at the dawn of her career."

Female First magazine wrote: "To say expectations were high for this would be an understatement. However, every expectation for a talented child were blown away from the first track. ... [T]here is constant emotion from a truly talented voice."

USA Today rated the album 2-1/2 stars out of four, writing: "[Evancho's] sweet, unblemished vocal tone and slow, careful vibrato hardly betray her young age. ... But Dream's predictable and often bombastic odes to love and faith can undermine the tween's most appealing quality: innocence. I'd have preferred a little less pomp and Puccini and more youthful wonder."

People Magazine gave the album three out of four stars, comparing Evancho favorably with her duet partners Barbra Streisand & Susan Boyle.

The reviewer for Kelowna Capital News in Canada called Evancho a "massive talent [who] seems equally adept at operatic arias, pop songs and show tunes." A Yahoo! review commented, "This new album ... is a comparative stunner".
