From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars Caravan was producing soft rock/pop albums with little risks, relying on decent vocals, good melodies and restrained instrumental legacy.

Caravan with Hastings learnt well how to craft harmonic positive songs and decorate them with contemporary instruments like rhodes, moogs and brass that didn't sound dated at that time.

"Jack and Jill" has a soothing but cheesy melody but quite good keyboard arrangements. The same holds for Hammond in "Can your hear me".

"All the way" is the only song with a bit of epic spirit but mainly due to its length, there is nothing adventureous about this song.

It's regrettable to say that Caravan went so much away from progressive rock already in 1976 where most other bands were at least rooted with 1 foot in the art rock realm.
