Music and lyrics
Grace S. Aspinwall of CCM Magazine noted "This folk-infused album has little splashes of bluegrass within it, and it is a joy to hear." At Cross Rhythms, Joanna Costin said the album comes "with lyrics that speak of hope and grace." Ryan Barbee of Jesus Freak Hideout wrote from "Track one to fourteen is a journey of grief, hope, healing, celebration, and salvation." At Indie Vision Music, Jonathan Andre stated the effort is "Full of hope, wonder, encouragement and comfort". Emily Kjonaas of Christian Music Zine wrote "The songs on Heart are slow, melodic pieces, meant to bring the listener in to a time of worship." At Alt Rock Live, Jonathan Faulkner wrote "Musically, Heart picks up where their previous record left off but with several new treats for the listener", and that "lyrically the album gets better."

Ocean Sound proposed an expanded coverage area taking in Southampton. Radio Victory ceased operations in June 1986, three months earlier than the expiry date of its franchise, with a test transmission informing listeners of the unprecedented situation. Ocean Sound took over programme provision that October from a new purpose-built broadcast unit in a business park at Segensworth West on the western outskirts of Fareham, Hampshire.
