4 stars Although the Family catalog has its ups and downs, their final studio album turned out to be one of the group's better offerings. The title track, with its tongue-in-cheek humor courtesy of Roger Chapman, is one of the many highlights. "Buffet Tea for Two" is another stand out track with its jazzy middle section and great guitar. "Sweet Desiree" was released as a single in the UK, but didn't do very well for some reason.

It's too bad the group broke up after this recording because they were onto something. Although Family were never what you'd call a successful band, more albums like this one may have changed all that.
