Critical reception[edit]

Scripps News Service thought that "Peach Union reconciles sensual dance music with an effective dark mood, underscored by gloomy chords and [Lisa] Lamb's sometimes melancholy vocals."[4] The Miami Herald wrote: "Think frothy ABBA-styled hooks with an eye toward the dance floor."[5] The Stuart News declared: "Sweet, firm and ripe, the album celebrates and updates the glistening dance tunes and melodies of old-school '80s techno-pop auteurs like ABC, Human League, Thomas Dolby and Culture Club."[6]
