Allmusic.com gave Lesley Gore Sings of Mixed-Up Hearts a 3 star review:
Lesley Gore’s second album was far better than her crying-concept album debut (I’ll Cry If I Want To), and in fact above average for a 1963 pop/rock album, though not excellent. For one thing, the silly notion of building a concept album around self-pitying songs was thrown out. For another, it had three big hits: the excellent girl group smash “She’s a Fool,” the classic early feminist anthem “You Don’t Own Me,” and the jovial “Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows,” though the latter song wouldn’t make the charts as a single until it was recycled almost a couple of years later.
