AllMusic Review by

The highbrow, campy treatment given to some of these selections will turn off diehard R&B and soul fans. Producer William Stevenson tries to make Hodges, James, and Smith all things to all people, but the Broadway-flavored "Home Is Where Your Love Belongs" and "What Have You Done for Love" are more irritating than impressive. The ballads, however, are more than worthy of praise; HJS can sing, and they display their talent best on "Darling I Promise," "You Know Who You Are," and Earth, Wind & Fire's "You Can't Hide Love." The trio offers a good remake of Stevie Wonder's "Seems So Long," but other upbeat numbers are mundane and predictable.
