AllMusic wrote: “One of Scotland’s finest exports, Simple Minds deliver a strong synth-reared release on New Gold Dream. This album harks the darker side of the band’s musicianship, and such material alludes to their forthcoming pop-stadium sound which hurled them into rock mainstream during the latter part of the ’80s.”. Score: 4.5/5.

TUTV: This LP opened the gates to stardom. A dream came true.
