Slant Magazine 2.5/5 stars[5]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic gave the album three out of five stars, stating "the songs are generally a mixed bag, veering from sweetly melancholy to syrupy, but McCready has never been more sensitive as a vocalist, pulling the album through the rough patches and convincingly selling the notion that she’s a sober survivor." [2] Jessica Phillips of Country Weekly magazine rated it two-and-a-half stars out of five, saying that it "peaks" with the title track. She said that McCready's vocals were "confident" but added that the album was a "hodgepodge of songs."[3]
