AllMusic Review by

Teddy Pendergrass' return to recording and performing after the tragic accident that resulted in his permanent paralysis was among the greatest stories of the 1980s. Pendergrass had to learn to sing all over again, with restraint, sensitivity and control now his keys rather than volume and presence. This 1991 album wasn't quite as moving as 1988's Joy, but it still included several poignant numbers, especially the title track, which addressed his survival, neither downplaying the problems nor overstating his genuine happiness about still being alive.
