Writing for Allmusic, music critic Jeff Schwachter wrote the album "is a moodier album than Iowa Waltz, and Brown's songwriting takes a sharper turn into wider topical spaces and shows traces of the talents that would become developed to a fuller extent on his following release... This is an early album from one of the most enduring careers in contemporary songwriting and should not be overlooked."[1]
