AllMusic Review by Andrew Hamilton

This solid Honey Cone collection kicks off with "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show," which, along with "Don't Count Your Chickens Before They Hatch," is one of many songs that Invictus/Hot Wax writers wrote from old sayings. "Want Ads" and "Stick Up," which both placed high in the charts, are infectious, overpowering gems, while the rolling ballad "The Day I Found Myself" is the perfect vehicle for Edna Wright, Carolyn Willis, and Shellie Clark's top-shelf vocals. Lesser-known tracks like "All the King's Horses, All the Kings Men" and "VIP" (also recorded by the Glass House) are pleasing additions.
