The album generally received positive reviews from music critics. AllMusic critic David Jeffries thought that the record "plays out cool and tasteful, like old friends who pick right up where they left off decades ago" and "deserves special attention from the dubheads, '80s heads, and the Uhuru faithful."[1] Daniel Sylvester of Exclaim! wrote: "By incorporating modern sounds into their oeuvre, Sly & Robbie strive to stay relevant by weaving the past into the present."[2]
