AllMusic 3/5 stars[2]

According to Jason Birchmeier of AllMusic, Awesome contains "mostly ballads here and some innocent concessions to the hip-hop audience." The sound is similar to the group's surprisingly successful predecessor, Ear-Resistible, although "less rewarding", but it is still "the Temptations sounding like the Temptations."[2]
