All Music Guide - James Chrispell
This was the record that sent Grand Funk over the top. Throwing strings into the hard rock mix on the epic "I'm Your Captain," it also contained the show-stopper "Mean Mistreater." Although the production leaves something to be desired, this record is quite a statement even by today's standards. [The 2002 reissue adds four bonus tracks: an alternate mix of "Mean Mistreater" and versions of "In Need," "Heartbreaker," and "Mean Mistreater" recorded live at the Orlando Sports Center on June 25, 1970.]

    Grand Funk's best album

    The guys are still rockin hard but they have added a little introspection to the mix as well and it all adds up to their finest album. They never had the chops to be among the Rock elite but they could entertain a crowd with more enthusiasm than a lot of the big names.
