The best Byrds album. The music is fantastic, perfect harmonies and a great mix of styles with a lot of psychodelic from the 1960s. A true american classical album and one of the best made in the decade

This is the best byrds album. It starts off fantastically with artificial energy and has other great tracks like get to you and the wonderful cover of Goffin-King's wasn't born to follow. The only disappointment is the other Goffin-king effort Goin' back, it just seems out of place here. Anyway, still a brilliant album.

Not as stirring for me as Younger Than Yesterday, but this and YTY are their best, miles above the others. Consistently experimental, attractive, jangly and influential.

A fantastic album. The first one without David Crosby but it is up there with "Younger than yesterday" as their greatest work. Trippy stuff !

One of the best of the Summer of Love. Each song perfectly mixes rustic country/folk with the psychedelic sounds of the age. The point, I think, is that "returning to the land" can be a revolutionary, mind-altering experience. An essential rock album and the Byrds' best

Wonderful album, the best one with "Younger than Yesterday". A cohesive mixture of folk rock and psyche with perfect harmonies. Definitely the best period of the Byrds...

I like this album but it is a mix of different styles and it does not feel like an album, more like an odds and sods kind of release.
