5.0 out of 5 stars Americas first and best, 15 Aug. 2009
This review is from: America (Audio CD)
This is the first America album I ever heard and it remains my favourite album from America and one of my favourite albums of all time.

There is a rawness in the tracks that has largely dissappeared from later albums and I have often wished they had kept their later production less sugary and more like this, their debut album.

The CD description mentions "Horse with no name", probably their best known song, but it is NOT on this album (nor do I miss it here, though I love the song). America has a very varied mix of music here and my real favourite is "Donkey Jaw", with some superb acoustic guitar, building the song piece by piece. "Pigeon Song", also a favourite - also shows the eclectic mix of songs on the album and I miss that spirit in later offerings.

Give "America" a try. You will be very surprised by the great music on the album and maybe a bit dissappointed, like me, that their later albums never quite surpassed the genius of this one.
