AllMusic Review by

Kingfish had been through personnel changes by the time of this, its third album. Bob Weir was long gone, but also out of the picture were guitarist Robbie Hoddinott and drummer Chris Herold. In their places, remaining members Dave Torbert and Matthew Kelly recruited Michael O'Neill on lead guitar and ex-Wings drummer Joe English. The record cover also credits Bob Hogins on keyboards, John Hug on guitar, and David Perper on background vocals, which would bring the band up to a septet, but only five members appear in the cover photo. Torbert and O'Neill share lead vocals on what is more of a mainstream pop-rock album than the band's first two; "Magic Eyes," for example, sounds like Bob Welch, although the boogie is sometimes reminiscent of Canned Heat.
