AllMusic Review by

The second album from the nine-piece outfit did not have the smash hit like its predecessor Shot of Love, but it still has its bright spots. Though the group has multiple lead vocalists, the baritone of Mark Woods is commendable. The featured releases were "Pull My Strings" and "From 9:00 Until." The former is an aggressively paced funk number. However, it does not retain that vibrant feeling for which the group is known. It peaked on the Billboard R&B charts at #31. The latter is also aggressive, but has a festive atmosphere more in line with the septet's let's-get-this-party-started image. Though it's easily a Top Ten cut, it only managed to peak at #44. "If You Like Our Music" is a classic Lakeside number but was never released. This project also features two beautiful ballads in "I Can't Get You Out of My Head" and "I'll Never Leave You," and the moderate number "All in My Mind."
