Critical reception[edit]

The album received a fair amount of favourable reviews, as indicated by the aggregate score of 72 at Metacritic.[1]

The album was a longlisted nominee for the 2010 Polaris Music Prize.[11]

Heart of My Own was awarded the second spot in Exclaim!'s 2010 Folk & Country Year in Review music rankings. The album was praised for the rumbling, rollicking edge in many of its songs, "The arresting vocal and autoharp simplicity of "The Shore" demonstrates the fundamental talent at work, one so transcendent that it hints at a timeless soulfulness that Bulat is still at the outset of channelling."[12]
