Album Review

William Ruhlmann [allmusic.com]

From its brown-toned cover to its contents, Loggins & Messina's fourth studio album is a sober, low-key, reflective affair. The band's music, with its single flute, violin, and horn lines, directed by Messina's intricate guitar and mandolin playing, serves a series of mid-tempo tunes expressing a lot of quiet dissatisfaction signalled by titles like ''Be Free,'' ''Changes,'' and ''Move On.'' As usual in a Jim Messina production, all of this is elegantly, tastefully accomplished, but one could hardly come away from the record feeling that all was well in the L&M camp.
