5.0 out of 5 stars Certainly One of Their Best Efforts 26 Feb. 2001
By C. Kuschel-Toerber - Published on
Format: Audio CD
After the final (and by then pretty awkward) recording with producer George Martin in 1979, "Alibi" was like a fresh wind. It's a crackling album that still sounds great more than 20 years after its original release - in my opinion one of the best AMERICA releases ever, especially since later albums introduced more electronic sounds that just don't harmonize with AMERICA's usual laid-back acoustic style.
On "Alibi" there are some rocking Dewey Bunnell tracks, some mellow Gerry Beckley ballads - and some great backup work by the likes of Timothy B. Schmit and John D. Souther. The album has a very strong and straightforward West Coast sound to it, and each of the eleven tracks absolutely delivers. I'm grateful that I could finally replace my outworn vinyl copy of "Alibi" with this well-mastered CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Good After All These Years! 5 Nov. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
As they say, you can't judge a book by its cover. The music is as good as the cover is bad. This album is a real pleasure for America's fans. I particularly like, Survival, Catch That Train, Might Be Your Love and Right Back To Me, but all of the selections (except Hangover) are vintage America. Amazingly, the music stills sounds fresh eighteen years after the original release. This album should be in every fan's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is My Absolute Favorite America Album 27 Feb. 2002
By KittiPaws - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An all time favourite !!! 29 April 2002
By Goanna - Published on
Format: Audio CD
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good album 17 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Released in 1980, it was their second studio album as a duo and their first since 1973 not produced by George Martin. They go back to a simpler production of their early days. The songs are more straightforward folk pop/rock. Best songs are I Do Believe In You, Valentine, Catch That Train, and Coastline.
