All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes' second album found the group continuing to ride its early peak, featuring the hit "The Love I Lost" in a six-minute version longer than the one that made the pop Top Ten and an additional Top Ten R&B hit in "Satisfaction Guaranteed Or Take Your Love Back."
