AllMusic[2]

Dave Thompson of AllMusic described the album as "Little more than the highlights of a stage act honed through appearances at sundry cabaret clubs and on TV", also calling it "good-natured pop with a saccharine bent, and so utterly directionless that even the Jackson 5-isms that would soon be sweeping into their set (and had already distinguished their maiden hit, "One Bad Apple") have yet to be tapped."[2]
