Q (11/00, p.133) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Craftily split into a 'fast side' that now suggests The Black Crowes gone pop, and a less satisfactory 'slow side' that nonetheless featured 'I Don't Want To Talk About It'..."
Record Collector (magazine) (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Surrounding himself with Grade A American musos such as Steve Cropper and Al Jackson, Stewart introduces a sophisticated sheen to ATLANTIC CROSSING..."

None of Rod Stewart's many self re-inventions has been half-hearted, least of all the full-fledged adoption of the full-on electric rock of 1975's ATLANTIC CROSSING. This album saw Stewart moving past the folk and blues of some of his past work, trading it in for some brash saxophones and jumpy R&B-tinged rhythms. AC features a host of well-known Yank studio cats, including guitarist Steve Cropper (whose contribution was also compositional), producer Tom Dowd, and the Memphis Horns, who all lend an able hand in helping Stewart leave his UK roots behind.
The transition at the heart of ATLANTIC CROSSING was a radical musical departure. "Three Time Loser" is a slick rock number, filled with ripping leads, saxophones, and explicit sexual subject matter. From the reggae groove of "Alright For An Hour" to the softer "Slow Half," which features Stewart's version of Crazy Horse's "I Don't Want To Talk About It," ATLANTIC CROSSING catches Rod Stewart as he jumps headlong into another style, one of many directional changes in his ever-continuing journey into legend.
