AllMusic Review by

The group's second album of 1967 is less successful than its predecessor, mostly because of a somewhat weaker selection of songs -- the uninspired title is sort of a giveaway about the hasty nature of the production. The single "Silence Is Golden" is the highlight, and none of the rest quite comes up to its level of attractiveness, though it's close. The rest is a mix of trippy psychedelia, covers of American soul, and originals that show modest inspiration (one of which, "Sing Sorta Swingle," is a tribute to the Swingle Singers). The overall mix of sounds is pleasant but less compelling than Here Come the Tremeloes. Reissued in 2000 as part of Here Come the Tremeloes: The Complete 1967 Sessions with the earlier album and bonus tracks.
