Reception

The album was largely panned by critics when released. Today, the album is a collector's item. Dave Thompson for Allmusic says that "As usual with the early-'70s Top of the Pops albums, the rockers fare better than the ballads — listeners cringe past a toe-curling "Without You," but T. Rex's "Telegram Sam" and "Metal Guru" are electrifying" and that "The team acquits themselves well, too, across the year's greatest novelty smashes".
