Record Collector (magazine) (p.90) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The upbeat 'Are You Ready' and the excellent 'Whatever Turns You On' are immediate pleasers..."
Billy Ocean was on his way to superstardom with this album, his first big hit release on Epic. The title song was his first R&B Top 10 record, and he got another couple of chart singles before beginning his run of R&B and pop hits. It also demonstrated his equal ability doing exuberant uptempo dance tunes and convincing, if at times oversung and vapid, ballads. Epic was later left red-faced when an act they developed moved over to Jive/RCA and went platinum. ~ Ron Wynn
