AllMusic2.5/5 stars[3]

Allmusic awarded the album 2½ stars with reviewer Bruce Eder stating "Bo's presence was somewhat overwhelmed by the massive number of session musicians involved (well-meaning though they may have been) and more so, because Bo was still looking for a new sound, ... The songs are pretty fair -- a mix of soul and funk -- with elements of his old sound, and this is probably the best compromise he achieved during this phase of his career, between the old and the new".[3]
