Allmusic reviewer Matt Collar resulted that "the resulting sound is definitely more rock-informed than one might expect and should draw favorable comparisons to such similarly inclined outfits as Maroon 5 and the Jonas Brothers.[3] Collar also listed "Do You Love Me", "Fall", and "Do It for You" as the album's stand-out tracks.[3]
