Three Dog Night's Fourth Album May Be Their Best!

"Three Dog Night were on a roll at the beginning of the new 70's decade. They had already released three excellent albums ("Three Dog Night", "Suitable For Framing" and "Captured Live"). Their first album for the new decade was "It's Not Easy" which produced the hits "Mama (Told Me Not To Come)" and "Out In The Country". While that album was excellent, it was Three Dog Night's next release "Naturally" that produced their biggest hit with "Joy To The World". Other hits from the album were "One Man Band" and "Liar". But the album also had some other great songs such as the rockers "I'll Be Creepin'", "I Can Hear You Calling", "Fire Eater" (an instrumental rocking track which showcases Mike Allsop's extroadinary guitar playing as well as Jimmy Greenspoon's awesome keyboard skills), the soulful "I Can't Get Enough Of It", and "Sunlight" (an excellent acoustic guitar based slow song written by Jesse Collin Young). Three Dog Night were successful at utilizing three lead singers combining soul, rock and blues into a sound that was distinctly their own. I can't think of too many groups that could harmonize as well as Three Dog Night and it's no wonder they were the seventies most popular rock group. If there's one Three Dog Night cd you buy, this should be it, as "Naturally" was released when the group was at the peak of their musical career. Highly recommended!"
Pop, Soul, and Pseudo Hippies...

"Certainly dated yet by no means dead, Naturally provides the listener with a small fragment of this group's enormous talent --- despite the second-rate lyrics. Driven by the incredible vocals of Hutton, Negron, and Wells, the album was a welcome change from their earlier works in both style and studio engineering. The bittersweet slash of Argent's "Liar", masterfully translated by the mournful, twisting riffs of Michael Allsup's guitar, arguably stands alone as the album's finest moment. Forget the overrated "Joy to the World"; if the listener can stomach low-level soul, occasional flubbed lyrics, and the pseudo-hippie mysticism of "Heavy Church", the album is a brief gateway to a less taxing time, and, regrettably, too brief a statement by such a phenomenally talented group."
Joy To The World!!!

"This has to be Three Dog Night's biggest and best album. This CD features nothing but great songs like "Joy To The World (the number 1 pop song of 1971, and Dunhill Records' biggest selling single), "The Family Of Man", "I Can Hear You Calling", and "Liar". "Heavy Church", "Sunlight", and the instrumental "Fire Eater" are excellent, too. Do yourself a favor and purchase this CD. You'll be glad you did!"
