David Jeffries of Allmusic gave the album three-and-a-half stars out of five, praising the Nightclub nature of the songs. He particularly complimented the production of "Who Dat Girl" and thought sampling of George Kranz and Yello on "Turn Around (5, 4, 3, 2, 1)". Entertainment Weekly's Mikael Wood gave the album a "C" rating, disappointed that the quality of the songs didn't go beyond that of "Club Can't Handle Me".
