"This is the second Mamas and Papas album I had bought and WOW! I love it. The album starts off with a accapella poem by Michelle Phillips. When I first heard it, it sent chills up my spine as it has a haunting sound with comical lyrics. Next, the song Safe In My Garden, has a real 60's social awareness message to it as it marches away, as heard in the chorus. Meditation Mama is relaxing. Mama Cass' Dream A Little Dream Of Me is a good solo and probably best represents Mama Cass' unique voice. Their Room song has a defiant sound to it which has a good guitar background with good harmonies. Midnight Voyage is absolutely dreamy while also being humorous as during this song, they take a break to adjust their harmonies, the air conditioning, the TV set and the earphones. This album is very worth listening to, and if you like 60's music then you'll be listening to this one over and over."
The last Mamas & Papas album still sounds pretty good

""The Papas and the Mamas" was the final album from the Mamas & the Papas and is a solid effort given that the group was about to self-destruct highlighted by what is clearly the most mature songwriting of John Philips, who never wrote a more beautiful song than "Twelve-Thirty (Young Girls Are Coming to the Canyon)." You can also make the argument that the group never sounded better as their richer harmonies also reflected a sense of maturity. Then you can throw into the mix Cass Elliot's best "solo" effort, "Dream a Little Dream of Me." This album clearly has the distinction of having the best songs by the Mamas & the Papas that you will not find on their greatest hits collections, with "Safe in My Garden," "Mansions," and "Midnight Voyage." As you listen to these songs a few time the only real glaring weakness you find in the songs overall all the lyrics. For example, "Too Late" is a great sounding song with forgettable lyrics and you can say the same thing for "Meditation Mama" and "Rooms." But then the point of the Mamas & the Papas was always the sound and on that score there is little to complain about here. Consequently, this 1968 album is not only the group's last effort, not counting a 1971 reunion effort, but arguably the one Mamas & the Papas album that you would want to pick up in addition to a solid hits collection."
