CD Reviews

Good songs, but....

"This is one of your classic hodgepodge albums. Trot out a recognizable '60s phrase like "Flower Power," put day-glo Summer of Love cover art on it, and call it "psychedelic."The individual songs range from OK ("Reach Out of the Darkness") to great ("White Rabbit," "Crystal Blue Persuasion," and "Incense and Peppermints"), but these songs really don't have much to do with each other besides the obvious fact that they were all recorded in the '60s. The Seeds would probably be offended to have "Pushin' Too Hard" labelled as a flower-power hippie song. These guys were garage/punk, NOT a flower-power band."Did you ever have to make up your mind" is not even the Lovin' Spoonful's best song, and it is about as far from "psychedelic" as you can get. Same goes for "California Dreamin'."I can hardly think of a worse juxtaposition of songs than the slight, corny "Along Comes Mary" (slightly psychedelic, but only in the coy lyrical content), being placed right after "White Rabbit." Or the nice but bubble-gummish "Green Tambourine" being placed right next to "Psychotic Reaction." The track sequencing is your typical "slap a bunch of songs together" job.But for $8, I probably should not be too critical. Taken for what it is -- just a way to get a few good '60s songs -- it is certainly worth the price. Just don't expect it to follow its supposed "psychedelic" theme."
GREAT
