AllMusic Review by

Returns the group to masterful pop-country form, where it once again takes possession of that cherished Byrds/Flying Burrito Brothers turf, with a '90s attitude. Mike McDonald's somewhat nasal but richly personal vocals are laced with a vulnerable streak that snaps the lyrics to life. But this session's new secret weapon is background vocalist Bernice Pelletier, who beefs up The Jr. sound with seamless layers of vocal harmony before finally letting loose for a solo pattern on "I'm So Glad."
