Writing for Allmusic, music critic William Ruhlman wrote of the album "Brown presents several "notebook songs," i.e., songs he has written recently in a notebook and not performed before. Not surprisingly, given the forum, he makes frequent references to Michigan and to environmental concerns, among other political issues."[1] Steve Horowitz of PopMatters wrote the album " It's a typical Brown show. His low, rumbling voice exudes cool as he offers personal, matter-of-fact observations about life... He leads with his heart and lets his head follow."[2]
