Critical reception[edit]

Matt Bjorke of Roughstock gave the EP three and a half stars out of five, writing that "these songs are a strong presentation of Dallas Smith as a solo artist ready to break out as the next Country music star." Bjorke said that Smith has "an interesting and unique sound that is different than anyone in Country music and there’s more range in his voice than people may have expected" and felt that "there’s really not a song on the Tippin Point EP that couldn’t work on radio."[3]
