Allmusic's Thom Jurek gave the album a perfect score (5 out of 5), saying that Jones "poured his heart into every syllable and its chilling quality after almost 30 years attests to this". He also praised other cuts on the record. He called "Pass Me By (If You're Only Passing Through) "one of those haunting, mid-tempo honky tonk love songs that won't let go after the first chorus has been sung".
