Allmusic 3.5/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by John Bush awarded the album three and a half stars and said that "The results are excellent, highlighting the power of Vaughan's voice, whether she's singing a rosy "All I Do Is Dream of You" or one of the most turgid torch songs, "All or Nothing at All." Her best feature is "When Sunny Gets Blue," a spotlight for her dynamic range.".[1]
