Allmusic gave the album a 4 star rating saying "It has the same combination of sweetly sentimental ballads and endearingly gaudy dance-pop that made ...Baby One More Time".
NME reported (with a score of 8 out of 10) that "She's modern-day pop perfection realised in a nearly, human form," though it also refers to her as an "evil genius" and rather cynically compares her music to the addictive drug ketamine, based on the drug's tendency to blank the user's mind and thought processes.
