Such a sleeper of an album. I readily overlook this as a album just "Time of the Season" but in reality it is solid all over.

The voice of this singer is so good, and the compositions here are marvelous. The Zombies put out their view in pshychedelic sound, being this album one of the last and best of this era.

A 60s psychedlic masterpiece of the same class as Love's Forever Changes, Sgt Pepper's, and the Doors self titled. I'm not even sure the Beach Boys could acheive harmonies this good.

From LedZep
First listen ever, and I'm completely blown away. Not sure why I've never listened to The Zombies before, but I'm definitely glad I did now. I don't know if I've ever had a first listen where I immediately loved the album as much as this one... Maybe only my first time listening to Porcupine Tree... This one will be played and replayed for weeks to come! And hopefully years if it really remains as good as the first listen was.

Time of the Season is my least favorite here, but I think that's because I've heard it too much.

Ottimo e raro esempio di pop come si usava allora, con melodie belle ma mai stucchevoli, produzione ricca ma non pachiana, canzoni senza spigoli ma mai banali. Figli o fratelli minori di Beach Boys e Beatles ma purtroppo destinati ad un ben minore successo; peccato perché le canzoni di questo album sono tra quelle che, una volta sentite, non le scordi più.

It's a crime that this isn't in the top 100.

Well above average for the genre and another album where the band has the audacity to save the best for last.

It's a solid album. I wouldn't call it great, or anywhere near the top of the list of the greatest albums ever, but it's a nice album for sure. Definitely listen to it if you're a fan of baroque pop. Otherwise, it's not a must-listen.
