Maria Konicki Dinoia of Allmusic rated the album 3.5 out of 5 stars, saying that "Amanda's vocals, Tyler's harmonies, and Steve's writing all contribute to one of the finest sophomore outings by a country group in a long time." [2] Robert Loy of Country Standard Time was less favorable, criticizing the album for being "skewed toward the young country-pop crowd" and having songs that "have very little to say to anyone whose acne has already cleared up".
