Allmusic 3/5 stars[1]

All of the Good Ones Are Taken is sixth solo album of Ian Hunter. The album contains a mix of several styles. Longtime collaborator Mick Ronson was mostly absent (he only played guitar on one track), because he was seriously considering quitting the music business.[2]

In 2007, the album was reissued with a single bonus track.
