Critical reception[edit]

Mark Franklin of The York Dispatch's blog, Idol Chatter gave the album a C and wrote that it "shows promise and allows a very pleasant voice to shine through."[5] He singled out "P.S." and "Blur" as highlights. Although he considered the lyrics to "P.S." cliche, he called the song "catchy" and "radio ready", while he wrote that "Blur" grew on him "with repeated listens".[5] He was less favorable of "Lullaby" however, calling the version on Urban's Myspace page "beautiful in its simplicity", but criticizing the version included on the album for having too much "clutter".[5]
