Allmusic 4/5 stars [1]

The album was heralded[by whom?] as a mild success, popularizing on some of the themes of the times. The song, "This Time I'll Be Sweeter", charted fairly well on the U.S R&B front.[citation needed] Being the first[citation needed] of her kind to do so, Bofill's sophisticated vocals would prove to have an effect on the jazz, Latin and urban contemporary music audiences of the time.[citation needed]
