Rolling Stone (p.75) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]tring-swept and brooding, Blades' tunes are more complex than standard Fania fare."
Liner Note Author: Alfredo Alvarado.

This release was a transition between Blades' post-Willie Colón sound and the '80s Seis del Solar. The salsa sounds predominate much of the time, and there's a Cuban classic in among his own compositions. But keyboards and vibes (presumably from Louie Ramirez, who did some of the arranging) point to a new dispensation in the offing, with their (here, at least, very successful) fusion edge. ~ John Storm Roberts
