Fogelberg's following has gradually mounted since his break from Fool's Gold, and for those borderline admirers this LP should convince that he is a premier writer and vocalist. Not only is he a writer of poetic and passionate love tales, but a singer of force and conviction.
- Billboard, 1977.
Fogelberg returns to Norbert Putnam for this effort, which ranges from the heavily orchestrated, highly dramatic title cut to light CSN-style folk-rock like "Once Upon a Time." It's one of Fogelberg's better albums, in spite of his tendency for grandiose statement. * * * *

A couple of Fogelberg's albums -- Souvenirs and Nether Lands -- have their moments of fine songcraft that predate his gradual slide into schlockdom. * * *
