AllMusic     [1]

Tomas Mureika from AllMusic believed the album was "better than much of the pop music out at the time, it feels too much like a commercial product rather than a labor of passion like Heartland or Flame." adding ""Kiss the Ground" "Push of Love" and "Let's Start a Fire" are all perfectly solid synth pop songs—but, alas, the era of synth pop was over by 1990 and Sterry had yet to discover the type of music that would ultimately make Real Life great again."[1]
