'Hollies' finds the early 1970s version of the band in rejuvenation. The 'Long, Cool Woman' hit saw Allan Clarke return at Michael Rickfors's expense. They then set about following up the hit with more Americanised rock, though the tracks are hard-edged rather than heavy. The harmonies are, as ever, superb.

'Curly Billy', with its slick lyric, epitomises their approach and is clearly based roughly on 'Long, Cool Woman'. Though not as good, it rocks a bit harder and is one of the highlights. 'Out On The Road' is another, and in similar vein, but the obvious main attraction is the soaring 'The Air That I Breathe', a huge hit which these days would be saddled with the 'power ballad' label.

The only track I don't like is the soapy 'Love Makes The World Go Round'. Against this, the five bonus tracks enhance the album, particularly 'Tip Of The Iceberg'. All of them fit in with the album's style. This is one of The Hollies' best albums.

I have always been a great fan of The Hollies and have many records of theirs. This is once without Graham Nash but it is brilliant. Allan Clarke's voice as always is superb and personally it would not be The Hollies without him. I have seen them in concert many times and enjoyed every minute. Their music has so many happy memories of my earlier life. I have seen the later group now that Allan Clarke has left, but personally it is not the same.

This one was the bands best release of the 70's. After this they put out some fine discs 'another night' , 'a crazy steal' etc but this was more rock orientated than those fine ones which are more pop rocky perhaps. I still think those others were good though. This one though is so solid as a rock n roll cd that it's heads above what came after. At this point they sounded as competitive with any rock band out there. It has the hit's 'out on the road' and the huge hit ' the air that I breathe'
that is still a fantastic workout in vocal ability.

I'll admit that I was prejudiced against this album before I played it for the first time. I was really disappointed and down that Mikael Rickfors had left the group. I loved the 2 albums, Romany, and Out On the Road, plus the single with I had a Dream. I'll also admit that I was amazed that Allan Clarke had returned to the Hollies as it had appeared that his departure or firing had been quite bitter. Given all that I was still prepared to enjoy the album as I thought Allan a fine singer and had followed his solo career and bought both of his solo albums to date.
The problem with this album is that most of the songs here are mediocre and juvenile. A reviewer at the time said that it was silly for 40 year old men to be singing as teenagers and that pretty much sums up this album. The exceptions are Air that I Breathe of course and Allan's ballad Don't Let Me Down, and Pick Up the Pieces Again which sounds as it was taken unchanged from Out on the Road. The other 2 tracks taken from Out on the Road have added Allan's voice and they are both simply terrible. The beauty and depth of Rickfors voice has been replaced by Allan's shrill whiny voice and these 2 songs that were great on Out on the Road are unlistenable. The song Out on the road's instrumental backing sounds the same with the only change being the addition of Allan's voice, which he had once remarked that the Hollies sound was nothing without his voice. Unfortunately his voice cannot compare in any way with Rickfors and Allan's attempt to duplicate it leads to one of his worst performances. Transatlantic Westbound Jet fares a bit better but the superb instrumental break in the middle was inexplicably removed.
Songs like Down on the Run and Rubber Lucy are pleasant but forgettable. The only positive thing that I can say about this album is that it brought the Hollies back with a hit song and it kept them together to record some fine albums like 5317704.
