One brilliant soul group + one genius writer and producer (Norman Whitfield) = one awesome album. From 1971, this freshly remastered record is one of the very best the Temptations ever recorded. It's got the sublime hit 'Just My Imagination', plus the social consciousness of 'Unite The World' and 'Man'. Then there's the wonderful 'I'm The Exception To The Rule ' - which would have made a great single with its spoken introduction and overall melancholy - and 'Throw A Farewell Kiss' with its stylish piano arpeggios and vocal harmony workouts.

Best of the lot though is 'Smiling Faces Sometimes', a 12 minute saga of paranoia and betrayal, where the group gets to strut its vocal prowess and the producer gets to flex his 'freak out' orchestrations. It's mind-blowing stuff, moving the Temptations ever closer to Sly And The Family Stone-type territory. The remastering is superb. Highly recommended.

At long last ,a classic album from the TEMPTATIONS available @ a good price and good sound quality to boot....this is what collectors like myself, have been asking of the UNIVERSAL/EMI.etc vaults for years....there are thousands like myself who want to transfer their vinyl collections to cd...( even in this digital age )..and the TEMPTATIONS are without doubt the finest vocal group to prove the point...its 2013 and their back catalogue is still not available....think of SOLID ROCK, WINGS OF LOVE, HOUSE PARTY, etc yhe list goes on. RE SKYS THE LIMIT circa 1971, this is the album that was EDDIE KENDRICKS swan song ,and he left us with JUST MY IMAGINATION...a classic, along with SMILING FACES,although not always thought of as a TEMPTS essential, this album, produced by NORMAN WHITFIELD, should be on every lover of good music wants list.....buy and enjoy !!.

Sky's The Limit 26 Nov. 2013
By LeQuent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is a great piece to have and what makes it great in my opinion is because this is the last Temptations album with Paul Williams and Eddie Kendricks. I really like the album cover because it lets us know that "Sky's The Limit" and we can do whatever we put our minds to in the life. The opening track "Gonna Keep On Trying Til I Win Your Love" is a great tune, which is also on their "Cloud Nine" album just different lyrics, then you have the smash hit "Just My Imagination", what a smooth ass tune, and then those funky tracks "Smiling Faces Sometimes" (i like how majority of it is instrumental) and "Love Can Only Be Anything". I wish Paul Williams had more leads on this album, but if you listen close to these tracks you can hear his voice fading away. I'm glad was i finally able to get this album on disc b/c ive been waiting awhile for it to come available, i just wish Motown would release all these albums that are out of print b/c we are missing out on some good music. If you dont have this cd, get it while you can
'CLASSIC TEMPTATIONS!' 23 Nov. 2014
By T. Miller - Published on Amazon.com

I've awaited the re-release of this album for years! So thankful to the Japanese recording industry who've been at the helm of reproducing the work of American artists in recent years.

This album, includes the final sessions with Eddie Kendricks, before he went solo. His blend with Dennis Edwards, (David Ruffins' replacement), is nothing less than exquisite! Their masterful combinations on 'Exception To The Rule', and 'Farewell KIss', render you breathless.
