AllMusic Review by

Album is arguably Joan Jett's strongest non-compilation release, featuring a consistent, freewheelingly wide range of material (which the Blackhearts really tear into) and punchier, more detailed production. Once again, Jett delivers strong, enthusiastic performances, but this time, the quality of the material lends her equal support. The singles "Fake Friends" and "Everyday People" (the Sly & the Family Stone song) scraped the bottom of the Top 40 charts; other highlights include Jett's original "The French Song," which details a ménage à trois.
