Writing for Allmusic, music critic Richie Unterberger wrote of the album "While the performances are pretty good—and the vocals perennially better than good—it also seemed to be an indication that the pair were unwilling or unable to write or procure a decent supply of new material. Because of the overfamiliarity of most of the songs, it has to rate as one of the brothers' less interesting efforts, regardless of the high level of execution."[1]
