The album was awarded 4½ stars by Allmusic with Bruce Eder’s review stating “This strange (and strangely compelling) album is the most controversial of all O’Day’s Verve Records releases, popular among O’Day’s hardcore fans for the showcase that the Three Sounds’ near-minimalist accompaniment affords her singing. .. while O’Day sings five songs. She is amazingly restrained and low-key throughout most of her work here … she seems uninspired in terms of any inventiveness, with long stretches of silence where one would have expected her to improvise. What is here is fine … but there’s amazingly little life to the procedings
