The song was warmly received by music critics. Georgiy Starostin thought that it was the best track on "All Together Now", the band's quintessential album. He called it "a solid, riffy tune whose main attractions are the gruff, almost war-march-style bassline" and praised Rod Argent's keyboard work. The Hammond B3 solo on the track was cited by Rick Wakeman as the greatest organ solo ever. The track has remained a staple on AOR-format radio stations for decades after its release.
