This Fantasy release doesn't compare to their Volt or ABC releases, but it has some enjoyable moments. Original lead William "Wee Gee" Howard ("In the Rain") reunites with Ron Banks, Lenny Mayes, Willie Ford, and L.J. Reynolds for a new twist: every member gets to lead at least part of a song. "Somewhere In Time" contains a medley of the group's biggest hits, but like onstage medleys, it's disappointing. Still, it was an interesting idea. Lenny, Ron, and L.J. swap leads beautifully on "When Love Is Over," and Ron and Wee Gee shine on "One Love Ago." ~ Andrew Hamilton
