Allmusic 2.5/5 stars [1]

Allmusic noted that Toto made no attempt to rework the songs they covered for the album, and concluded that "while it's nice to know that the band has good taste in other people's music, that doesn't explain why anyone needs to hear them copy that music when the originals are so readily available."[1]
