Allmusic.com gave Bad Animals a 3 star review:

Switching from Epic to Capitol with 1985’s Heart proved to be a wise move for the Wilson sisters, who experienced a major resurgence in popularity and gained many new followers. Heart’s arena rock sound had become even glossier, and the band was selling more albums than ever. But for all its production gloss (courtesy of Ron Nevison) and pop slickness, Bad Animals comes across as sincere rather than formulaic or cynical. From the rockers “You Ain’t Too Tough” and “Easy Target” to the power ballads “Alone” and “Wait for an Answer,” all of the songs are quite memorable.
