AllMusic Review by

To be picky, this compilation of Le Couple's works should be called "Our Special Thanks," seeing as it caps three years in the professional life of this soft rock married couple. Richard & Linda Thompson they're not, but their highly inoffensive acoustic pop is sweet and in the right circumstances could bring a tear to the eye. Schooled in the chord changes and melodic sense of James Taylor, Le Couple had a big hit with "Hidamari No Uta," and from that formula they haven't strayed. That of course makes My Special Thanks consistent, but also makes it a bit of a slog to get through.
