AllMusic Review by

Light, humorous Southern soul from Clarence Carter, who can sing with passion when he wants to, as evidenced by "So You're Leaving Me," and can also get his groove on with speedier numbers like "Fast Young Lady" and "It Ain't What You Do." A rap introduces Spooner Oldham and Dan Penn's "Wrong Too Long," and the lyrics of "I Was in the Neighborhood" will hit the bullseye with every displaced lover. "Love Me With a Feeling" features bluesy guitar licks all over the track. It's nice overall, but the ten songs lack an edge; Clarence is more laid-back than his normal earthy self.
