All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Given Firefall's pedigree of former Spirit and Flying Burrito Brothers members, it may seem that the group would have been a little more adventurous than the band that gave us the soft rock classic "You Are the Woman."

And while a couple of the songs coast by on sound, they could also craft a good tune, with the singles "Livin' Ain't Livin'" and "Cinderella" standing proudly alongside "You Are the Woman." It's a fine, understated country-rock debut that remains one of the more underrated items of its kind -- it holds its own next to Poco, Pure Prairie League, and the Eagles.

    Underrated Firefall

    Firefall was indeed an underrated group, and the quality of their music was overshadowed by their reputation as being a "wimp" band. This album has many fine moments. Rick Roberts provided the softer, more sensitive, touch and Larry Burnett kept them rocking. Their second album (Luna Sea) was even better.
