AllMusic 4/5 stars[1]

Whirlygig is the first studio album by The Lovemongers.

The Lovemongers were a side project of singer-songwriting-musicians, and sisters, Ann and Nancy Wilson, better known as the frontwomen of the rock band Heart. They formed The Lovemongers with Sue Ennis and Frank Cox, and released Whirlygig in 1997 on Will Records. It contained all original material, with no outside writers.[2]

Steve Huey of AllMusic gave the record 4 stars of 5, and said that it "will likely appeal to fans of both Heart's earlier and later material."[1]
