Upon release, Gordon Barr of Newcastle Evening Chronicle commented: "This "best of" album is the definitive collection of Furniture tracks. Hits may not be the right word as the only real one they had was "Brilliant Mind". But one listen to this shows how unfair the pop world can be - there should have been more hits!"[9] Peter Buckley, in his 2003 book The Rough Guide to Rock, described the compilation as "a posthumous summary of much-neglected talents".[10] AllMusic recommended the album by picking it as an AMG Album Pick.[11]
