Critical reception[edit]

Thom Jurek of AllMusic rated the album three stars out of five, calling it "one solidly placed party anthem after another" but "strictly for contemporary country audiences."[1] Country Weekly reviewer Jessica Phillips praised Butter and Crystal's vocals, but thought that the album lacked more serious songs to contrast the "unexceptional summer ditties."[2] Her review gave it two-and-a-half stars out of five.
