The Osmonds' identity as a standard pop music act is hereby changed with this package. The five brothers have moved in the filed of spectacular productions far away from anything anyone has associated with them. This LP is their concept for a concept album including electronic instruments, electronic effects, a large symphonic string section, some Beatles-sounding arrangements (Movie Man) and repertoire which includes narratives. The act has been moving more and more toward this direction, and once you get past the avant-gardish opening cut, War In Heaven, you are awarded with richly produced songs of solid value. Let Me In represents the brothers at their collective finest. All the songs questioning and analyzing one's life are written by Alan, Wayne, and Merrill Osmond. Three arrangers have provided sterling sweetening: Tommy Oliver, Pete Carpenter, and Reg Powell. Best cuts: Movie Man, One Way Ticket To Anywhere, and Are You Up There. - Billboard Magazine, June 30, 1973.
