AllMusic Review by

Free Flight's sixth and thus far last recording has its brilliant moments, particularly "Mo's Art" (a virtuosic adaptation of a Mozart piano sonata) and some of Mike Garson's originals, even if their version of Carole King's "You've Got a Friend" is not too memorable. Flutist Jim Walker is as impressive as ever and works well with keyboardist Mike Garson, bassist Jim Lacefield, and drummer Ralph Humphrey (guitarist Mike Miller makes a guest appearance on one number), but the erratic material results in less magic than on the group's earlier Palo Alto releases. Worthwhile but not essential.
