The style of the record is adult-oriented rock, similar to artists like Steely Dan, Sting or Michael Franks. The record has been described as fitting the yacht rock genre or the west coast sound. The backing vocals, provided by John Eberhard, add depth and contribute to the smooth and melodic yacht rock style. Yacht rock is one of the commercially successful genres, known for its smooth melodies and high-quality production. This genre is among the most commercially successful genres from the 1970s to the 1980s. The Doobie Brothers have significantly influenced this genre with their easy-listening melodies. Michael McDonald, a key figure in yacht rock, has made substantial contributions to the genre. The style of the record is jazz influenced soft rock, similar to artists like Steely Dan, Sting or Michael Franks. The release of ‘The Yacht Rock Book: The Oral History of the Soft, Smooth Sounds of the 70s and 80s’ by Greg Prato in 2018 further explores the history and influence of this genre.
