AllMusic Review by

Probably Farrell & Farrell's strongest album, this one received a lot of airplay on Christian radio because of its Prince-influenced hit, "People in a Box." Appearing for the first time as a five-piece band, the group offers a groundbreaking work with synthesizers and electronics. This record has more of a feel of unity than any of their previous efforts, and certainly much more in the way of creativity. Highlights include "Heart in the Right Place," "People in a Box," and "I Belong to Him." There is nice guitar work by Mike Demus and Dana Key. A couple of unfortunately politically incorrect songs appear here. "The Sting," an otherwise catchy song, features Jayne Farrell singing about the evils of sexual temptation, blaming the woman for leading the man astray and thus fixing the blame on her. Also, "American Man" equates Americanness with Judeo-Christianity. Barring these, this is easily Farrell & Farrell's strongest effort and completely unique in its genre.
