AllMusic Review by

The seventh Tribes of the Underground album in as many years sees the respected Infracom label take up point position on its further adventures in soul. As downtempo royalty, Rob Gallagher and acclaimed Compost upstart Joseph Malik make their presence felt with a pair of vocal tracks, so Infracom's wealth of material and knowledge uncover a number of hitherto undiscovered gems. Ayro's rich gospel delivery on "Let This" offers an unexpected twist, while the broken-beat genius of "When You Find Love" and "Hold On" is worth the asking price alone, with one-time Riton compadre Alistair Colling throwing down the Rhodes as Essential Soul injects some South American spirit.
