Allmusic.com gave Emitt Rhodes a 4 1/2 star review:
Although it probably wasn’t meant as such, this self-titled album is Emitt Rhodes’ definitive statement. Soon after disbanding the Merry-Go-Round (of “Live” fame), Rhodes scored a solo deal with Dunhill. Rather than recording with a band or using studio musicians (which he did with his first “solo” album American Dream), the multi-instrumentalist decided to build a small, primitive home studio and record the entire affair there, “At Home.” The results are, in a word, staggering.
