American Songwriter wrote: "With 10 songs running just over 40 minutes, the disc is compact and taut. That helps makes this a moderately successful return for a veteran singer and occasional songwriter who always seems one hit away from the mainstream audience that threatens to constantly elude her."
Allmusic wrote that "the results are approximately as scattered. Gray's obvious comfort level and charm, however, help compensate for the less than ideal quantity of magnetizing material."
Q Magazine wrote: "The Marge Simpson of nu-soul continues to meander down her own path."
