Critical ReceptionEdit

Allmusic wrote: "You Stand Watching is far from being either bad or offensive -- it's too well-produced, professional, and pedestrian for that -- and despite the increased sense of safety and slickness, it will likely please fans of his first album since it pretty much delivers more of the same, yet there is nothing on this record to suggest that he has the skill of a real songwriter or the presence of a real star."

Entertainment Weekly gave the album a C minus, writing: "The lyrics on his shaky sophomore record, You Stand Watching, sound like they’ve been lifted from a junior-high yearbook (”I’ll be your shelter when the weather gets rough”). Worse, Cabrera ends virtually each line with a distracting breathy whine, while pop-lite ”With You Gone” contains the pitchiest vocals this side of the American Idol semifinals."
