The album received strong critical reviews. Allmusic said Nichols fit the pieces of rhythm and blues and country and western together in a new and fresh way. KEXP.org, the radio station of the Experience Music Project said, "Nichols and his sweetly soulful songs are the deserved focus here, and this rich, subtle gem is one of the year's best albums." Positive reviews could not overcome poor sales and Nichols was dropped from the label and the album was withdrawn after only a short release in North America.
