Allmusic 3/5 stars[1]
Winnipeg Sun Positive[2]

The album received fairly positive reviews. Allmusic writer Jason MacNeil gave the album 3 out of 5 stars and states that the "softer, gentler vocal half of Crash Test Dummies has produced an interesting and evolving solo collection ranging from the quasi-industrialized synthesizer on "Make You Mine" to a world music feeling on "Everything," with its electronic layers in the vein of Depeche Mode and its Exciter album." However, he also notes that "a slight annoyance is how the album seems segmented, with songs in the same style running in consecutive order instead of being mixed".[1] Darryl Sterdan of the Winnipeg Sun states that "Cinderellen turns out to be kind of a surprise party. Instead of making the sort of album you'd expect -- one that sounds like her old band -- Ellen recorded all sorts of tunes that remind you of all sorts of people." However, he also makes a criticism in that there are too many ballads during the latter half of the album.[2]
