The album was reviewed by Dave Thompson at Allmusic who wrote that "It's a terrific album, and no mistake". Thompson felt that in comparison to his albums recorded in Italian and Spanish, "Left to his own English language devices, however, Richard's natural vocal powers can scarcely be faulted - even the most practiced rehearsal can sound like an ad lib, and it doesn't matter how many times you catch that chuckle at the end of "Blame It on the Bossa Nova," it still seems as natural as breathing".[2]
