The Allmusic review by William Ruhlmann awarded the album three and a half stars, and said that compared to his two other Spanish albums Cole "still didn't sound like he always knew what he was singing, and he still seemed to be working on his pronunciation, but on More Cole Español he was clearly having a lot more fun"[1]
