Scott’s Rock and Soul Album Reviews
That said, now I really like this multi-sectioned opus, which completely changes gears at least a couple of times and which is a fine showcase for how capable and adaptable the musicians in the band were. […]

Classic Rock Review
Combined, this distinctive yet diverse record was their most substantial and consistent of their early years, offering differing sonic textures and enjoyable tunes for an overall fulfilling listen. […]

Rolling Stone c/o
Neither Johnston (who writes most of the songs) nor Simmons is more than adequate as a songwriter, and Johnston’s whiny and emotionally thin singing doesn’t do much to improve the material. […]
