Critical receptionEdit

Reviewing for AllMusic, critic Thom Jurek wrote of the album "He can write, sing and yeah, for a guy who spent so much of his life living outdoors and in shelters, he's a handsome devil too. But the grain of truth that's in his voice outstrips any image or sonic trappings that may be placed upon him from outside. Keep your ears open; this young man is no flash in the pan."[4] and reviewing for Entertainment Weekly, critic Alanna Nash wrote of the album "Wayne sings with pop-star stylings, but his bruised songs throb with stone-cold truths."[5]
