The same mix of topics that you always get with a O'Jays album from the 70's, and the usual variety of styles.
Each of the songs with a message follows an uptempo path and proves that Philly could do Funk on "Give the People". There are a couple of ballads and if you aren't moved by "What am I Waiting For" then you got no Soul!!!!
"How Time Flies" defies categorisation with its changes from what appears to be a standard Soul slowie to a Blues influenced groove and back again and overall there is not a dud track on the album
