Synopsis

Amazon.com
This is about as treacly as pop can get, yet something about it endears and endures. Forget the Neil Youngish banality of "Horse with No Name." The best America songs feature a delicate yet intricate interplay of acoustic guitars that creates a tableau for sweeter-than-sweet vocalese. Just try not to sing along to "Ventura Highway" or "Sister Golden Hair." Try not to be suckered into sentimental reminiscence when listening to "I Need You" or the superb "Daisy Jane." And if your heart hardens when listening to the low-key lope of the "Muskrat Love," you must be cold-blooded. --Tod Nelson

Great compilation of America's greatest hits. Many are the types of songs you know by heart but don't remember the band or artist involved.

All the "America" hits you love
Richard R. Green | 03/19/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had first bought the "Here and Now" hoping to hear the original recordings, but was slightly disappointed that on that CD the older songs were live performances only. If you want their hits as you remember hearing them on the radio or your old album that may be trashed, this is the CD for you."

"I love the song 'Horse with no Name', don't ask me what it's about, just a catchy tune. America always had the song with the catchy tunes and here you can get all of them in one album. No need to buy any other America collection, their history album tells it all."
