AllMusic wrote: “Our Favourite Shop, the Style Council’s second proper album,
was still quite eclectic, but it didn’t seem as schizophrenically diverse as Cafe Bleu.
Paul Weller had been able to incorporate his soul and jazz experiments into his
songwriting… the record was more cohesive and stronger than the debut.”
