CD Reviews

Very underrated America release
Matt | WI United States | 02/07/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I originally heard a few tracks off this CD on an old 8-track tape that bit the dust a few years ago. Hearing them again on this CD and knowing what America had for big hits in the early/mid 1970s, it's a shame the singles picked for this album didn't become hits, as they really stand out. A few of my favorites off 'Harbor'. "Don't Cry Baby", in my opinion, one of (Dan) Peek's nicest tracks he's put on tape. "God of the Sun' is catchy (I like that synth at the end), and "Monster", which was also the B-side of "Don't Cry Baby", is a beautiful and haunting acoustic guitar/vocal piece that reminds me of how America got it's 'sound' with the very first album.I would have given this a 5 star rating, but I had to dock off a point due to the song "Slow Down". The band (or it's producers) I think, tried desperately here to get a hit by going the way of disco. Unfortunately, this is not quite the "America" I know and enjoy on that piece. Other than that, this CD is a 'must have' for America fans, even those who have purchased the "Highway" box. I feel a couple other tracks from "Harbor" could have been included in the box also, but at least, it included a couple highlights from the "Harbor" album.Highlights: "God of the Sun", "Don't Cry Baby", "Seargent Darkness", "Monster", "Sarah""
One of my favorites

"when I bought this LP in the '70's, I only liked a few tracks...it actually gets better with time. I'm especially fond of "Monster" and "Sarah"...It's a shame it's not available domestically. I'd skip the boxed set and get all the original albums on CD."
Swan song for the trio!

"Recorded with a mobile studio in Hawaii, which probably didn't help them keep their focus on recording. Still a very good album and their last album with the original line-up. The album was a modest hit in 1977, but pop music was being over-taken by disco and America was fading from the spotlight that they had enjoyed since 1972. Surprisingly none of the songs made a dent on the singles charts and none received much airplay. Best songs are God Of The Sun, Don't Cry Baby, and Monster. Bowing to commercial pressures the album does include a disco song, Slow Down."
