PopMatters: 

The industry pros serve to sweeten, not change, Caillat's sound, which results in a richly textured album, not just a collection of radio-baiting singles, that retains the performer's personality.

ROLLING STONE: 

Caillat has a fine voice--clear and ringing, with a hint of a rasp--and she can write hooks. (She co-composed every song here.) But the simpering puppy love grows wearying over 12 tracks, especially because Caillat fails to convince as a romantic heroine.

Uncut: 

Caillat has a sweet, clear voice and the songs are crisply tasteful ("Fallin' For You" is all hook) but rarely go beyond formula. [Nov 2009, p. 83]
