AllMusic Review by Mark Allan
Although this is the third straight hard-rocking album from this Canadian quartet, there are moments here that seem soft, almost tender. As the band continues to find its voice, you get the sense that its intelligence and ambition won't stand for standing still. After three rockers to open, "Dance Some More" conjures a rhumba and throws in an exotic trumpet. The occasional acoustic guitar and string section departs from the first two albums. On the down side, the in-studio experimentation makes for an uneven listen, and the lyrics are hard to follow, although the album has some great music and is an important phase in the band's evolution.
