AllMusic Review by

It would soon be a new day, because Taylor was headed for the hills as soon as this flop ran its course. He had gone from having the number one album in the entire world in 1977 to cutting ill-fated pop schlock and pseudo-disco. While they tried on this album to find a middle ground between Taylor's soul/gospel strengths and generic dance-pop, he no longer had the motivation to deal with the nonsense, and it showed throughout this album. While this wasn't his worst, it was far from his best.
