CD Reviews

Another great America effort
Athena Lovelace | oklahoma | 01/16/2006

"I think this album has some great songs. Valentine is a great rocker song and while it is not a usual America melodic tune, it is still a great song. You could have been the one is a classic. This is a must for America lovers."
An all time favourite !!!

"This album represents some of the best tracks, I feel, the guys have produced. Riding on the back of a successful closing 70's and a new 80's decade. This album has a slight hardcore feel about it. A brilliant sound from one of the greatest rock groups today.... 30 years on and still going strong!!!
One of my all time favourite albums from Gerry & Dewey.If you don't buy it, then your missing out on a great album..."
This Is My Absolute Favorite America Album

"I've been a fan of America for nearly 30 years (and never mind how that dates me). Their music got me through some tough times in high school in the 70's. "Alibi", released in 1980, is my favorite of any album they've ever released...and believe me, it's tough to top their "Homecoming" album. As long as I live, I will never, ever understand why "Alibi" wasn't a huge hit. There are at least 5 potential hit singles on it. "Coastline" is a showcase for Gerry Beckley's ethereal voice. "Survival" pairs meaningful lyrics with a bouncy melody. "Right Back To Me," "You Could've Been The One," and "Might Be Your Love" are just plain enjoyable. I think this is one of America's bouncier, more peppy albums. There's little here that's as deep or nebulous as, say, the song "Sergeant Darkness" (my all-time favorite America song) from the "Harbor" album. But "Alibi" sure is a whole lot of fun."
