AllMusic Review by

Since the group's first national hit "Love Ballad," Jeffrey Osborne had been the featured vocalist for LTD. However, this recording would be his last one with the group before pursuing a solo career. This album spawned two upstanding singles -- "Where Did We Go Wrong" and "Shine On" -- the fomer being a rhythmic ballad enhanced by some stylish background vocals, leaving Jeffrey Osborne substantial space to demonstrate his commanding vocal ability. In spite of having all the right ingredients to attain that number one status, the single peaked at number seven after 20 weeks on the Billboard R&B charts. It would be the group's last single to crack the Top Ten. The latter composition is arranged with noticeable crossover appeal augmented by Osborne's crooning vocals; the single peaked at 19 before fizzling out after 18 weeks.
