On this album, Peabo Bryson still retains some of the appeal that made him a favorite among R&B lovers. The title track is the first song on Side A, and rightly so, as it hooks you in immediately. Its comforting, moody chord changes are pleasantly engaging. Bryson's pleading vocals are convincing, even in their mournful tone. This song was not a release, but it did receive radio airplay and remains a Quiet Storm standard. There were two featured singles: "Let the Feeling Flow" and "There's No Guarantee" are both moderately paced ballads with a commercial feel; the former is a more dynamic song. While Bryson's lead vocals roar throughout the body of the song, his background vocalist Terry Dukes stands just as tall in the vamp, where the two exchange vocal ad libs. The song also enjoyed more chart success than its companion; it peaked at number six on the Billboard R&B charts after 20 weeks. "There's No Guarantee" fell 30 positions short of its predecessor at #36 after only nine weeks on the charts. While "Impossible" conveys a pop texture during its inception, it slowly transcends into a spirited R&B number with much gospel influence. To be known for Quiet Storm savvy, the South Carolina native has some rhythmic uptempo numbers that hold their own. Bryson's overall ability to inflict his vocal prowess upon a song remains prominent on this album.
