There's a lot of nice music on this album, and the two cuts everyone alludes to, Dallas & Tonite I Think I'm Gonna Go Downtown, are really terrific. The musical saw is a huge detraction tho. It reminded me of Brian Wilson's use of the bicycle horn on Pet Sounds' You Still Believe In Me; it's a great touch, comes out of left field and adds dimension to the song, a great idea. That's how I felt about the saw when I heard it on "Dallas;" then, the band proceeded to use it again and again, and it got to be a drag. Brian knew how to be inventive and creative with this stuff without overdoing it (and I don't mean to belabor the Wilson connection here, cuz that connection is pretty tenuous here, obviously), but the Flatlanders wayyyy overdid the novelty instrumentation here.
