AllMusic Review by

An after-the-fact concept album cobbled together from various Lynn albums of the '70s. Despite the title song and "Deeper and Deeper," both of which lament relationships where the partners are basically going through the motions, most of the songs here are more upbeat and positive. Most of them are mid-tempo ballads (big exception: the sort of honky-tonk "There's All Kinds of Smoke in the Barroom), and some ("When We Get Back Together," "I Don't Want to Heart It Anymore") have the sort of Captain and Tennile-ish mid-'70s instrumental pop touches that spelled crossover to Nashville at the time.
