AllMusic Review by

A precusor of the direction they'd later take at Buddah when glossy pop ballads supplanted the raucous soul shouting that was characteristic of their early Motown work. Aside from the minor pop hit "Make Me the Woman You Want to Come Home To," there is a stunning interpetation of Kris Kristofferson's "Help Me Make It Through the Night" that stands out as definitive. But aside from that, there wasn't anything else that was up to that standard.
