A great record for a mellow summer afternoon. Their best album by far.

From neilgee
I don't think America have the edge that CSN sometimes get with Neil Young in tow but nevertheless this is a pleasant album with strong songs played well. Never mind what John Peel said about them because they do what they do well.

They do rival CSN, whom I really like as well, for their vocals and harmonies. I enjoyed every song on this album and will listen to them many times to come.

A very relaxing album.

They sound like they were inspired by CSN/Y. This sort of folky roots rock can be thought of as part of the original America/na wave.
