Customer Review

on 7 January 2001
This album is in my top ten of "must haves" and it challenges even The Beatles' best work. A veritable pot pourri of musical sytles, the collection of songs stand on their own as potential singles.
Pleasant Valley Sunday shines with all the optimism of 1960's summers thanks to that fantastic jangling guitar riff. A true classic. Love Is Only Sleeping and The Door Into Summer are beautiful examples of guitar pop, that inspired bands like The Smiths, The Stone Roses and Travis.
Throughout the album the mood changes from psychedlic (Daily Nightly), soulful (Words), country (What Am I Doing Hanging Round) to smoochy jazz (Don't Call On Me)!
The set closes with the insane Star Collector which tears along like an out of control truck, building to a wonderful climax with crazy moogs and frantic drums.
Throughout their career The Monkees always strived to be a "real" band but never shook off the boy band image. This collection proves that they could cut it with the best of them.
A five star cracker!
