Monkees at their best,
This review is from: Pisces Aquarius Capricorn & Jones Ltd (Audio CD)
My favorite Monkees album. If all of their albums had been on par with this, they would be remembered as one of the great 60s bands, instead of their (undeserved) legacy as a gimicky TV product.
I've had this record (and now CD) for about 22 years, and I still listen to it as much as anything in my collection. "Pleasant Valley Sunday", "The Door into Summer", "Star Collector" and "What Am I Doing Hangin' 'Round?" are the stronger songs on this disc, but there's not a lousy song on here. Even the much-maligned "Hard to Believe" is probably my favorite sappy Davy Jones ballad. The bonus tracks are nice, and the liner notes are superb and very informative. Overall, I'd say an essential piece of 60s pop music.
