All Music Guide - Matthew Greenwald
This, the Chambers Brothers' coming-of-age record, was a well-timed and even better executed exercise in modern record-making. The brothers had recorded several excellent gospel-folk sides on a few labels including CBS in the mid-'60s. They were darlings of the folk set, and even sang backup on a few unreleased Bob Dylan sessions in 1965. By 1967, they were at loose ends. Having demoed a slightly demented song that year called "Time Has Come Today," the group entered the studio with producer David Rubinson, who was fresh from some critical acclaim after recording Moby Grape.

The resulting album and subsequent title track hit were huge successes, especially on FM radio. The rest of the album shows the brothers not just embracing the psychedelic trends, but also redefining their R&B leanings. [The 2000 CD reissue of Time Has Come on Columbia/Legacy adds three 1966-1967 non-LP B-sides, as well as the first single version of "Time Has Come Today," which is substantially different from the familiar one on the album.]

    Time has come to set the record straight

    Without a doubt, The Chambers Brothers biggest hit was "Time Has Come Today", and deservedly so! That song is on this CD in its full-length version as well as the well-known single version (in the bonus tracks). "Time has come today" is certainly one of the best songs of the sixties and, in comparison to some other 60s era hits, this song is as powerful today as it was then. However, this album is NOT a psychedelic album, it is a decidedly Gospel sounding album with some 60's rock elements. The fact is The Chambers Brothers were a great Gospel group, one of the best, and the group (and this album) is still much underrated in both rock and Gospel history. Oddly enough, "Time Has Come Today" was in many ways a departure from their usual style and gave a false impression of what the group was really all about. For those who come to this album without the expectation of hearing psychedelic music throughout, they will find a very wonderful and imaginative Gospel group.
