Dusty in Memphis has frequently been named one of the greatest albums of all-time; according to Acclaimed Music, it is the 104th most ranked record on critics’ all-time lists.  NME named it the 54th greatest album ever in their 1993 list,  and in 2003, Rolling Stone ranked the record 89th on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Richie Unterberger wrote in AllMusic that the album’s reputation has improved significantly over time and felt it was “deserving of its classic status”. Tony Scherman from Entertainment Weekly said Dusty in Memphis was a “pure gem”, Springfield’s greatest work, and perhaps one of the greatest pop records ever recorded,  Q took note of its balance between “R&B and sensitive pop dramas”,  while Spin critic Chuck Eddy viewed it as one of the all-important blue-eyed soul records.  In The A.V. ClubKeith Phipps wrote that Springfield and her team of musicians and producers for Dusty in Memphis developed an elegant and distinct fusion of pop and R&B that predated the Philadelphia soul sound of the 1970s.  According to Eric Klinger from PopMatters, its sophisticated style of music influenced the sound of 1990s trip hop artists who sampled songs from the album and became a blueprint for British female singers of the 2000s, including AdeleRumer, and Duffy.
