AllMusic Review by

It was three years before R&P managed a follow-up to their record three releases of blatant gay pop music. In the meantime they had become the most successful, beloved and prolific group in the history of gay music. This album is a feast of R&P at the top of their form. Packed with 15 songs of love, anger, politics and hope, the duo covers a wide range of subjects from lesbian/gay parents to lesbian/gay teachers, from surviving AIDS to surviving dating. As always, the harmonies are terrific. Classics include: "Tango Indigesto," "Queers in the Closet," "When Heterosexism Strikes" and "OH NO I'm in Love (With My Therapist)."
