Allmusic.com gave Orange a 4 star review:
This is a transitional Al Stewart album. After stretching the boundaries of song length and language with Love Chronicles, he was in a something of a holding pattern on Orange, without any obviously profound inspiration or moments of daring. “Songs Out of Clay,” however, does reveal the first signs of the mix of acoustic and electric guitar sounds that he would perfect on his next album, Past, Present and Future, two years later, while “The Fourth of May,” a six-minute personal story-song, gets something of the beat and the sound that Stewart would refine in achieving his subsequent success — he just needed subject matter other than busted relationships.
