The album was certified platinum by September 1995.[8]

Ron Wynn of Allmusic felt the album itself was poorly edited and sequenced, and though he was critical of the group's overindulgent tendencies and refusal to emphasize radio hits, still stated the album had enough good moments "to make it worthwhile for most urban contemporary listeners."[3] Dimitri Ehrlich of Entertainment Weekly gave note to the group's vocal harmonies and the album's production but felt the work lacked mature lyrics, taking away from Jodeci's authenticity.[4]
