The album garnered positive reviews from music critics. PopMatters' review, penned by Nathan Wisnicki, praised the album, commenting that the album starts off slow "but the arrangements get zestier, the lyrics get much wittier, and the singing meets its backing with a real offhand charm"as the album progresses.[6] Roz Smith, writing for The Aquarian, likened the music to that of Macy Gray and Amy Winehouse, stating that Coppola "adds a modern R&B and jazz flare" with her vocals.[1]

The album was included on Soul Tracks' year-end list of best albums as an honorable mention.[7]
