About.com's Kim Jones said "bottom line ... Britt Nicole has a winner going with Say It. This girl has it all: talent, drive and a huge heart for ministry. This is one of those faces that you will be seeing a lot more of in the future."[2]

CCM Magazine's Meredith Ball wrote "Musically and vocally, this album is solid. The melodies are infectious, and her voice is appropriately raspy without sacrificing vocal flexibility. Say It is a good listen the entire way through."[3]

Cross Rhythms' Tony Cummings said "this is the debut from 2007 which established this precocious pop talent on the US CCM scene but somehow missed the Cross Rhythms reviewing process. Not that that omission stopped your favourite media organisation from selecting five tracks for its radio stations and all of them - "Holiday", "Good Day", "Don't Worry Now", "Say It" and "World That Breaks" - are as catchy confections as you're likely to hear anywhere."[5][4] In addition, they said the album "all in all, this is still pure pop put together with considerable skill."[5][4]

Jesus Freak Hideout's Lauren Summerford wrote "Britt Nicole's debut is a solid one. Say It holds a few potential hit singles and lots of excellent material for an energetic live show. Britt is still young and will have plenty of opportunities to grow as an artist, but for now, listening to her Say It will be enough."[6]

SoulShine Magazine's Lindsay Whitfield said "Britt has not been this way, she has a certain edge and the mixture of production, vocals, lyrics and the instrumentation - everything-it has a chemistry that works. If you haven't picked up this album yet, do so, this is a 5 star gem for anyone who loves fresh pop/trip hop no matter your market, Britt Nicole is definitely ready to go onwards and upwards in her career."[7]
