IMHO: Their best!
Almost A Masterpiece

"This is the fourth offering from Poco...well if you don't want to include the live album that came before this one you don't have to. This is without a doubt thier best album. It's practically a masterpiece musically. The arrangements straddle country and pop very well without losing the rock and roll feel. If there had to be a flaw it would be the uneven songwriting that made me feel that they were trying to stay in the lines as far as keeping the songs short. The longest song on here clocks in a 5 minutes and 32 seconds. "Hoedown" is the only song that needs to be short. The rest needed a little filler to make the songs whole in my opinion. There's still a chockful of good songs here though. "Bad Weather" Feautures Paul Cotton's debut as a songwriter, and a singer. "You Are The One" a nice bouncy country love song, the title cut is the best by far with tremendous harmonizing from Tim Schmidt, and The last song on the album "Just For Me And You" equals the title cut as the best song on this album a tasty little rocker to give you something to hum on the way home. This was a busy album where Jim Messina would leave after "Deliverin", and Paul Cotton enters, but Ritchie Fuary would now start to get cold feet about continuing on, but he hangs on for 2 more albums, and leaves after recording "Crazy Eyes". This was almost a masterpiece, and I enjoyed it when I first heard the promo 26 years ago, and things just never die."
Very good, considering....

"The great Messina was gone, replaced by Paul Cotton. Most of us fans were prepared for a real letdown but were pleasantly surprised when the group delivered this tasty collection of songs. "Hoe Down" got my attention right away, announcing that the upbeat attitude wasn't dead yet. Then the gracious "Bad Weather" put me at ease over the change in lead guitarists. One after another the tunes played out, reassuring me that Poco was alive and well. It doesn't quite match the astonishing studio LP that preceded it but very few albums do. This has few "filler" songs and holds up quite well over the years."
