AllMusic Review by

Another offshoot of Monsoon, due to the presence of Martin Smith, but one which has striven to move on from the poppy side of that group by dealing with real issues. The title track deals with the commonplace issue of families secretly sending home money to relatives in the Indian subcontinent. It addressed a real issue far better than "College Girls," which touches on the need to retain an Asian identity while keeping an eye on the best of both worlds. In Sonal Dave, Jalsa had a promising vocalist. A mixed result.
