The album received moderate reviews Stephen Erlewine of AllMusic wrote In a sense, his sound is fully formed—there’s no mistaking his velvet baritone or his lush, string-draped surrounding, particularly on the album’s closing “I’m Gonna Love You Just a Little More, Baby,” a song so seductive it set the pace for the rest of his career. However, the album was criticized for sounding like Isaac Hayes. Christgau wrote "White's hustle is to combine Isaac Hayes's power with Al Green's niceness, and he succeeds, in his way, but the synthesis has its drawbacks--tends to compound his humorlessness and mendacity as well."
