AllMusic Review by

Barbara Pennington's compelling, raise-the-dead voice is a cross between Chaka Khan's and Gladys Knight's, and is always exciting. Credit Ian Levine for sticking with the Chicago native he discovered in the '70s on a mission to the Windy City. Levine's at his best when he works with Pennington who delivers on the title track, "All Time Loser," "Can't Help Being Guilty," and her first United Kingdom hits: "Running in Another Direction" and "Twenty-Four Hours a Day."
