Allmusic writer Sara Sytsma gave it three out of five stars and was given an "Album Pick" tag, calling it "a well-produced collection of mainstream, adult contemporary-oriented pop/rock." But commented that Walters "doesn't possess a great voice, but the producers of the album are quite talented; in their hands, he sounds very good."[2]

Tour[edit]

Walters toured the US and Europe to support the album. The European leg of the tour featured performances that consisted of just Walters and Reb Beach of Winger fame on acoustic guitars.

When asked about this tour Reb Beach answered:

"Jamie Walters was THE funnest tour I ever did. It was just Jamie and I, first class all the way through Europe. Jamie and I became great friends and we wrote the song "You" together. With the exception of Kip Winger, he is probably my favorite person in the world (meaning "male person")."[3]
