"Some albums you love the first time you hear them and other's have to grow on you over repeated listenings.This was one of the former.The first time I heard it,it became my favorite album for a couple of months.Every song is a gem.Both of the hits are solid and there is simply no filler to be found."Old Man Took" and "Another Try" are my personal favorites,but,every song is worth a listen.Every person who likes America should own this CD."
Great, consistent listener.

"I've listened to this ever since I was a kid and have always liked it.
Miniature is a good lead in to Tin Man, and "another try" is a good foot tapper with a somber message talking about a father who has not been there for his family.
It then goes into Lonely People, a "poppy" but nonetheless solid song.
What makes this album really cool are the "B" songs that don't get much radio play on classic rock stations - songs like "Hollywood," "You," and "In The Country."
The production and instrumentation on this album are excellent - the bass is awesome, and Willy Leacox does a great job on drums.
Soemthing that is missing is the vocal harmonization found on the first album, but other than that, this is a solid album that flows nicely between songs and provides an enjoyable listening experience.
