Walter Vaughn from St. Louis BiState Music Scene had this to say about the release: "These four  musicians play as one that in the end compliment each others individual talent. Every song on this CD is solid and stands on it's own. My favorite, "Everything" is "everything" you want in a # 1 hit song. It's impossible to listen to this song without singing along at some point."
