AllMusic Review by

While the music here certainly isn't central to an understanding of Gregory Isaacs (the epicenter of his canon remains his classic Night Nurse album), it is remarkably solid stuff, all bound together by Isaacs' cool, easy, and relaxed singing style, and his subtle and sometimes fragile phrasing lifts songs like "Say a Little Prayer," "It's All in the Game," and "Too Late Gonna Be Your Cry" out of the realm of the generic. Gentle, light, and sweet, this collection shows why Isaacs is held in such high regard as a singer.
