All Music Guide gave the album 3/5.
Ginuwine's first album in three and a half years (the 2007 release I Apologize was unauthorized), A Man's Thoughts is his first release away from the Epic family, and it's pretty much business as usual. It's a decent set of modern R&B, dominated by seductive slow jams, that stimulates a little more often than it fades into the background. It does take a serious tone on a handful of songs dealing in a wider range of relationship issues than lust, heartache, and devotion; "Show Me the Way," with an anthem-like chorus, is a guard-dropped plea for direction, while on "Last Chance," the singer has never sounded more desperate as he attempts to rescue a relationship. On the lighter side, Ginuwine reconnects with Timbaland on "Get Involved," but it's a missed opportunity, an overstuffed wreck of a club track where the producer and Missy Elliott all but completely wipe him out of the picture.

Ginuwine is finally back with a great album!!! It has been years (approximately 6) since Ginuwine released his last classic album, "The Senior." 5 star tracks include: Trouble, Last Chance, Open The Door, & Get Involved (Missy & Tim assisted). 4 star tracks include: One Time For Love, Touch Me, Lying To Each Other, Used To Be The One, Even When I'm Mad, & Bridge To Love (feat Brandy). This leaves Three (3) blah/OK tracks and two interludes which completely makes it worth the purchase! Thank you Ginuwine for making classic music again.....Now can the rest of these acts please follow!!!
I think he's been getting positive reviews in the magazines, there's the discounted prices at Best Buy & Target, there's the "Last Chance" video airing on MTV/BET, and the single seems to be doing well on R&B (his core audience).
I think the only promotional thing that's missing is TV talk show appearances/performances.
