"Song of Joy is a fantastic extension of the formula from the pair's debut LP. And though it is hard to argue with their huge success, it's easy to wish they expanded the band from the nucleus of drummer Hal Blaine, Dragon on bass and synths, and Tennille's voices to more players. For all intents and purposes they were a trio, or duo plus drummer, and though there are the mentioned horns as well as some backing vocalists, most notably the bass vocal of Gary Sims on "Lonely Night" and "Shop Around" and Louisa Tennille and Melissa Tennille, just imagine the depth of sound had the Beach Boys worked with them on instruments and backing vocals for a few songs. 1979's Make Your Move LP did have extra help, and when Captain & Tennille brought in a full crew as on 1980's Keeping Our Love Warm, it made for one of their most impressive musical outings, though it is important to keep in mind it was their one album up to this point in time that had no Top 40 hits! That observation aside, Dragon and Tennille play their hearts out, and when it comes to following up a monster debut, their second effort was quite simply an admirable and very impressive success." - AMG.
