Billboard magazine noted that she "shows off her own, stylish way with a pop song on this album cover over a lush string choir" and declared that the "Lass does a fine job here".[5]

Stephen Cook of Allmusic proclaimed that the LP "contains Wilson's standard program of easy swingers and ballads that show off her impeccable phrasing while sporting George Shearing's luxurious string charts in hits like "Little Girl Blue" and "Back in Your Own Backyard." He noted that "one also hears Wilson's burgeoning talent for vocal drama as she evokes a variety of moods" as "the listening pleasure is found mostly in her signature urbane pop sound".[3]
