Critical reception[edit]

On Allmusic.com, "Affinity" rates 4 out of 5 stars, and is described as " At times overambitious. And a plethora of cover versions given the progressive treatment instead of Affinity originals is a major letdown. But as an early work of post-'60s progression, this album is a pleasurable experience recalling the days when musicians and singers really worked hard at what they did."[1]
