The album contains little innovation on Lightfoot's trademark folk sound although it is notable as it contains Lightfoot's third seafaring song (his first two being "Marie Christine" from Back Here on Earth and "Ballad of Yarmouth Castle" from Sunday Concert), a genre that Lightfoot would continually revisit over the next 10 years. It also contains a rare Lightfoot foray into the protest song genre, in the form of the longest track on the album, "The Patriot's Dream," a ballad describing the enthusiasm of soldiers on a troop train "riding off to glory in the spring of their years," followed by the pathos of a woman receiving news that her husband's aircraft had been shot down in combat.
"Beautiful" was released as a single and peaked at #58 on the Billboard singles chart.
