AllMusic Review by

Other than Richard Streets' energetic lead on the risqué "Bare Back" and Glenn Leonard's glowing falsetto on "Ever Ready Love," there's not much to recommend on the Temptations' second Atlantic record release. Producers Brian and Eddie Holland didn't give Louis Price, who took Dennis Edwards' place, much to show his skills on. Overall, the songs are arguably the weakest ever recorded by the Tempts. After this, the Tempts returned to Motown, their mouths filled with humble pie.
