Reception

The Allmusic review by Michael G. Nastos awarded the album 3½ stars and states "While hitting up a handful of the pop tunes of the day, Turrentine shows he is interested in and capable of tackling more modern compositions... this represents a prelude to the success that would deservedly come his way".
