    The evidence here is that he's maturing nicely. [Jun 2012, p.88]

    It's bold, brassy and way more ebullient than a 75-year-old has any business sounding. [Jun 2012, p.112]

    The band is tight, the tunes are fine, and Ebo himself is on good form. But in general it simply lacks the power of his earlier material.

    Taylor gets deeper into his musical roots than he has on previous releases, creating a powerful set of songs that sound as if they could have been recorded in 1974.

    It's a sturdy set of mostly new material mixing Afrobeat and funk with traditional influences.

    Each song has a very different message, although it is the highlife feeling that stays with the listener.

    It's a worthy addition to the oeuvre of Ghanaian Afro-pop, as well as a lively and entertaining album in its own right.
