AllMusic Review by

Like almost all Liberty artists, Richard Marino is not known for greatness. And Liberty's ostensible audiophile series does little to improve upon its regular line, unless one counts die-cut gatefold packaging. Nevertheless, Marino has turned out an above-average pop percussion album. The entire first side is strong, from stalwarts such as "Fever" and "Lover" to the dubiously titled standout "Rots-O-Ruck." "Bagdad Express" on side two is the best pick, however.
