Allmusic.com gave Rapture a 5 star review:

Though Anita Baker got some airplay out of The Songstress, that promising solo debut didn’t bring her financial security. In fact, Baker was earning her living as a legal secretary in her native Detroit when she signed with Elektra in the mid-’80s. Elektra gave her a strong promotional push, and the equally superb Rapture became the megahit that The Songstress should have been. To its credit, Elektra made her a major star by focusing on Baker’s strong point — romantic but gospel-influenced R&B/pop ballads and “slow jams,” sometimes with jazz overtones — and letting her be true to herself.
