The album was met with mixed reviews from critics. Steve Kurutz from Allmusic gave the album a review of 4 stars out of 5.[5] Kurutz stated "Exposed, which was executive produced by Dupri and recorded mainly in Atlanta (the exception being the Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis-produced "Love's Still Alright," which was recorded in L.A.) makes a bid to capture some of that trademark funkiness. Moore has a great set of pipes, a mix of the throaty take charge style of Toni Braxton and the soft vulnerability of Janet Jackson, an undeniable sexiness, and a real emotional conviction that lends the songs an authenticity absent in many current releases. ".[5] Metacritic gave the album a score of 66 out of 100.[6]
