Allmusic 3/5 stars [1]

"Doin' Alright," was released in April 1982 and peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard R&B Albums chart. The lead single, "The Gigolo," was a slice of funk with new wave and rock elements that emphasized O'Bryan's falsetto. Released in January, "The Gigolo" peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard R&B Singles charts.

The follow-up single was an updated cover of The Four Tops' "Still Water (Love)," peaking at No. 23. Among the other standouts on O'Bryan’s debut include the mid-tempo title track; the elegant ballad "Love Has Found Its Way;" and the sentimental "Can't Live Without Your Love."
