Allmusic 3.5/5 stars [1]

This was the breakthrough solo album Eddie Kendricks was looking for. Charting on the pop chart at number eighteen and number five on the R&B chart. This was his only solo album that would land on the pop chart. Includes the number-one pop and R&B single "Keep On Truckin'", which is one of the precursor to disco songs to come out before the explosion of the genre.

This album established Kendricks as the most successful member of The Temptations to go solo. He was the only former member of the group to have a number-one Hot 100 single.
