"3.5 Stars. No this is not exactly Fillmore East but it isn't bad either. Jaimoe is missed and the songs are shorter and less bluesy than most ABB releases. The title track is not a classic Dickey Betts cut but most of the Gregg Allman sung cuts are quite good. He still has great voice and it is fine shape here on such cuts as "Never Knew How Much A man needed a Woman", "Maybe we can go back to yesterday" and "Straight from the Heart". This is a CD BETTER THAN ITS REPUTATION."
SORRY FOLKS, BUT IT'S THE ABB's WORST ! (it has a few moment

"The Allman Brothers Band's two Arista Records albums are the weakest in their catalog, and Brothers Of The Road (1981) is the worst of the two. There's not much going on here, and it all sounds pretty thin. It's not a complete waste, I guess. It is The Allman Brothers Band, after all, and Gregg Allman is singing. It's just that all of their other albums are much better. Get this to complete your ABB collection, but don't expect much."
