AllMusic Review by

Dexter Wansel deserves classification in two genres: rock and jazz. He jumps from bag to bag, style-wise, and you never know what to expect. These 32 songs chronicle his recording career on two discs; a multifaceted artist, he wore the hats of producer, writer, arranger, musician, and singer. Disc one begins futuristic, incorporating jazz and urban and some funky vibes for the dancefloor freaks. Disc two encompasses jazz, funk, disco, urban, pop, and reggae. Favorites, and for different reasons, include "You Can Be What You Wanna Be," "Theme From the Planets," "Sweetest Pain," "It's Been Cool," "Holdin' On," and "Ode Infinitum." Jean Carn, Terri "Brandi" Wells, and Herb Smith contributes vocals on some selections.
