Outside of a few outspoken voices on social media (which is pretty much ALWAYS the case), I don't think it got much of a bad rap at all.

Love Bridges in the Sky. The live version, especially the intro, riff just slays.  Having said that, I always felt that the last couple of lines of the chorus in the middle "On a journey to renew my life
Shaman take my hand" (the more epic, where JLB goes to a higher register and feels more epic) should have been in end to close the song, while those two last lines in the end of the song (same lines "On a journey to renew my life, Shaman take my hand" just sang in a lower register) should have been in the middle.

Excellent song, and really, there were several really good ones on that album.
