Critical reception

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic gave the album a two-and-a-half star rating out of five, criticizing the "pedestrian" production, but saying that Brice showed an "ability to seem like your own local boy made good." Giving it one-and-a-half stars out of five, Karlie Justus of Engine 145 thought that most of the songs were formulaic and the production "unpredictably jarring." Bobby Peacock of Roughstock was more positive, giving it four stars out of five. He thought that the songwriting was "cohesive" and that "Brice's irrefutable singing and songwriting talents come through clearly."
