AllMusic Review by

Although they did get a minor hit with the single "Money Can't Buy You Love," things had degenerated for both Midnight Star and '80s funk bands in general. The hip-hop and New Jack coalition had almost completely taken over at urban radio stations, and groups like Midnight Star sounded outdated and stagnant. The Calloway brothers' production expertise hadn't been replaced, and they weren't a good enough ballad band to do the kind of glossy songs that helped acts like Atlantic Starr survive.
