Toni Braxton received generally mixed to positive reviews from music critics. Ron Wynn from Allmusic found that her debut had Braxton, "an elegant and earthy songstress, nicely balancing those seemingly divergent sentiments [...] Braxton's husky, enticing voice sounds hypnotic, dismayed, and disillusioned [...] but she's never out of control, indignant, or so anguished and hurt that she fails to retain her dignity." He rated the album four and a half stars out of five. Los Angeles Times critic Connie Johnson gave Toni Braxton three ouf of four stars, and wrote: "Sounding like an unlikely hybrid of Phyllis Hyman, Anita Baker and Tracy Chapman, Braxton’s sultry, earthy delivery makes her a standout in today’s R&B arena." Similarly, People found that "when Braxton slides into her lower register she echoes Anita Baker, and when she skips around the higher notes there’s also a hint of Whitney Houston. The influences are there, but Toni Braxton is most definitely her own woman. On this sophisticated, stylish and soulful album, she slates her case."
