AllMusic Review by

On what was one of the Jazz Crusaders' final recordings before they dropped the "jazz" from their name, tenor saxophonist Wilton Felder, trombonist Wayne Henderson, pianist Joe Sample, drummer Stix Hooper and bassist Buster Williams play throwaway versions of "Give Peace a Chance," "Black Bird" and "The Thrill Is Gone" but are heard in more inventive form on five of their originals including the 11-minute "Space Settlement" and Sample's "Another Blues." Although the group was changing, they still retained their original sound as long as Henderson was a part of the band.
