Source Rating
AllMusic 4.5/5 stars[3]
Rolling Stone 'Mixed [4]

In their retrospective review, AllMusic commented that "Spooky Two is this British blues-rock band's pièce de résistance. All eight of the tracks compound free-styled rock and loose-fitting guitar playing, resulting in some fantastic raw music. ...their smooth, relaxed tempos and riffs mirrored bands like Savoy Brown and, at times, even the Yardbirds. ...Although Spooky Tooth lasted about seven years, their other albums never really contained the same passion or talented collaborating by each individual musician as Spooky Two."[3]
