There's no separating the unparalleled legacy of the Doobie Brothers from their upcoming HOR Records release World Gone Crazy – not that anyone would want to. Nevertheless, the new album may be most remarkable for the extent to which it stands completely on its own. Yes, World Gone Crazy is another chapter in one of the great American music stories, but it's neither comeback nor ... Read more in Amazon's Doobie Brothers Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Made for a great reunion. September 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
It took the Doobies about a decade to shake off the stigma of Michael McDonald. With "Cycles" they came back with the kind of rock sound that long time fans had been yearning for. The singles, "The Doctor" and "South of the Border" are great and there are several other tracks which make you feel like the boys had never been away, just taking a long break. A worthy addition to any Doobies collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rockin' Reunion November 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The original lineup (well, the Toulouse St. lineup to be fair) of the Doobie Brothers finally got back to together to release an album in the summer of 1989. The result is, in my opinion, their best work. There is really no weakness throughout the album. The Doctor was the huge hit, of course, reaching #9 on the pop charts and #1 on the Rock charts. The followup single was no slackoff itself, as it reached #45 on the pop charts and #3! on the Rock chart. South of the Border also fared well on the rock charts. Musically however, this album flows together so neatly, and each song is so thoughtfully catchy that there are no songs to skip over. Time is Here and Gone is one of the most amazing songs you will ever here - it's message and it's music echo so very true. In fact, lyrically, this album is no doubt the most mature the band ever did. But the music is what makes the Doobs - roaring guitars, sweet acoustics, and their lush, trademark harmonies. This album shows the best of all worlds. So pop it in and be reminded that "Music is the doctor...of my soul".

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a die-hard Doobie Brothers fan, and found this CD quite by accident. I'm so glad I did! This CD is absolutely the guys at their very best!! I listen to it several times a week during my commute to and from work. The music puts me in such a great frame of mind, I almost wish my commute was longer! "South of the Border" is my favorite track - wow, if THAT doesn't get your hormones working, someone has already plugged your plug!! My other favorite tracks are "Need a little taste of love", "Tonight I'm coming through (The Border)" and "Time is here and gone". I think baby-boomers will especially like this CD. As I listen to the music, I'm reminded of my life in the 70's, but it also makes you feel great about your life now. This CD was very difficult to find, but well, well worth the effort it took!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Stuff April 6, 2009
By Fred H.
Format:Audio CD
I loved this album when it came out and I still do. "Cycles" came out at a time when a lot of older band - "Little Feat" among them - were finding their footing again and people were realizing these bands still had some great music in them. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Comeback - Doobies do what they do best October 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Doobie Brothers' 1989 album "Cycles" marked an official comeback for the group. For the first time since the 1982 "Farewell" Tour, the Doobie Brothers would be reunited and produce a new studio album. This comeback album would be minus two core members of the Doobies: Vocalist and Keyboardist Michael McDonald and drummer Keith Knudsen. However, this comeback would be significant because it would mark the return of guitarist and lead vocalist Tom Johnston. McDonald had originally been brought in to replace Johnston when Johnston was unable to tour. Eventually Johnston would leave the group and McDonald would become a regular. As most people know, the Doobies started out out as a Southern Style Rock band. The Doobie Brothers have always shown a great ability to integrate country, folk, blues, jazz, and even gospel style into their music (especially with the addition of McDonald which saw a trend more toward R&B and Jazz). With Johnston back and McDonald gone, "Cycles" continues this integration - although now with Johnston playing guitars with vocalist/guitarist Patrick Simmons, there are times when the old Southern Style guitars continue to surface. There are also times when the R&B style is in the forefront. Also, McDonald and Knudsen might not be musicians on the album - but there are still some pieces that were co-written by each of them included on this collection. "Cycles" wasn't a lame comeback by any means. The Doobies put together one solid comeback album.

The title of the album is called "Cycles". The name comes from the Doobies love of motorcycling - and in particular Patrick Simmons love of it. But perhaps the title talks about how the Doobies go the "full cycle" in their music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could Be The Best Doobs Album Ever!!! August 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Now, don't get me wrong, most Doobies purists will cite "Toulouse Street" or "What Were Once Vices" or "The Captain and Me" as THE essential offerings from these American music legends. "Cycles", the first Tom Johnston album since 1975's "Stampede". Johnston left in '76 for "health" reasons. It was later revealed that TJ may have had a substance abuse problem of sorts. He made a minor contribution to "Takin' It To The Streets", but was abruptly upstaged by former Steely Dan session-man Michael McDonald. McDonald's unusual baritone? made for a day-night takeover of the once southern propelled boogie of the Johnston era. Original Doobie Pat Simmons seemed quite isolated by the McDonald takeover. His impact was almost non existent during MM's reign. But what happened was a bit of music history. "Minute By Minute" made the Doobies millions of dollars and earned them album of the year and a few grammies in the process. But Doobie purists were appauled by the change in direction and the loss of one of rock's most recognizable voices in Tom Johnston.

Cycles restores all that was lost and does more. The band ends up making a seemless collection of well honed Doobie material with Johnston making an amazing comeback. "The Doctor" may be nothing more than a recycled "China Grove", but man that's some good recycling! And if the record company (Capitol) was hungry for a "single", they got a beauty. But this album is so much more. "One Chain" immediately refocuses the old fans on the legendary DB harmonies and the band-ly brotherhood that went south during the McDonald era. What's nice is whether its Simmons or Johnston, the philosophy is similar; acoustic guitars, layered electrics and a fierce backing vocal brigade. "Take The Highway" is a great example of this.
