Allmusic 4.5/5 stars [1]

The album reached number 29 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and number seven on the R&B albums chart. The only single released from the album, "Sweet Love", reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1976, making it the group's first top ten hit on the chart. However, the last track, "Cebu", became a staple on the "Quiet Storm" radio stations, and appeared as a B-side to two of their later singles, "Fancy Dancer" (1976) and "Only You" (1983).
