Chris Neal of Country Weekly magazine gave the album a three-and-a-half star rating out of five. He said that the album contained well-written lyrics with a strong sense of individuality. He also said that Brody "doesn't reinvent current Music Row formulas — he just does them a little smarter and sharper than some do."
Matt Bjorke of Roughstock called the album a "fantastic collection of traditionalist modern country music," that wasn't the hit it should have been. He noted that only one single, the hit "Brothers" was the only track to make it to the charts in the U.S. While Brody's debut album was clearly not a breakout in the United States, it fared better in the artist's homeland of Canada where three singles earned top 10 rankings. The three hit singles were, "Brothers," "Dirt Road Scholar" and "Undone."
