AllMusic Review by

Peter Cetera had a number of good soft rock hits as a solo artist, including "Glory of Love," "One Good Woman," the Amy Grant duet "The Next Time I Fall," and "After All," a duet with Cher. On this misleadingly titled collection, only one of those songs, "After All," is featured -- the remainder of the album is comprised of re-recordings of his biggest Chicago hits, lesser hits like "(I Wanna Take) Forever Tonight," his duet with Crystal Bernard, and new material, which is pleasant but thoroughly undistinguished. In other words, it's a bit of a ripoff, since it is neither a collection nor a new album, and it won't satisfy either casual fans or collectors, especially since the new songs are below par. It's a wasted opportunity.
