AllMusic Review by

If not for "You're Throwing a Good Love Away," a romping excursion transformed into a mini-revival by the Spinners, this would be a throwaway. The material is pleasant, but nothing else here compels you to listen. In most cases, the titles are better then the songs. "I'm Riding Your Shadow (Down to Love)" is the exception to that; the title is confusing, but the tune is a pleasant, lightweight ballad done in the Spinners' imitable style. The others are unmemorable even after repeated spins. Either producer Thom Bell dusted off some rejects, or his Midas touch with the Spinners had worn thin.
