From lstevens
Overall: 9.6

Top Tracks: "Where Do the Children Play?", "Father and Son", "Tea for the Tillerman"

Beautiful, melodic songs with some incredible lyrics and powerful, emotive singing. One of the best folk or pop albums of the 1970s, without a doubt.

Someone here commented "A gospel choir has to cover this entire album at my funeral", really without exaggeration, this album seems to be spiritual, it's like a compilation due to the quantity of great songs, with a difference, it's a portrait of a specific moment, without the coldness of a collection of songs, is full of dynamics and depth, masterpiece.

Easily Cat's most consistent and definitive album, this one has him demonstrating mastery as both songwriter and interpreter.

My dad told me he first bought this album without knowing anything about it. He had only read the lyrics, as they used to be displayed on vinyl editions. This might be my favorite album of all time due to its pure sound and lyrics. I feel like Cat Stevens is a master of life and has everything to teach me when I'm listening to it, which is pretty frequent. I don't see how anyone could dislike this album. A gospel choir HAS to cover this WHOLE album at my funeral.

From Mozart
"une douceur typique hypie" indeed. This album feels very of-its-time to the point of feeling contrived. Still though I have respect for what it is, and the final (title) track is one of my favorite under 2:00 songs.

This is a great early album by Cat Stevens. Songs like Wild World, Where Do the Children Play, and On the Road to Find Out are terrific.
