The Byrds fourth album 'Younger Than Yesterday' may not receive the critical acclaim of 1968's 'The Notorious Byrd Brothers' and 'Sweetheart Of The Rodeo' but for mine it's their best album. Period

It's such a beautifully varied album with so many flavours and music gene's. There's the two Chris Hillman country rock-flavoured songs "Time Between" and "The Girl with No Name" , there's the LSD-influenced "Thoughts and Words" (Hillman again) ,the British Invasion-influenced "Have You Seen Her Face" (a fourth Hillman-penned song) , there's the classic "So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star" which suggests certain ironies due to the pre-fabricated aspects of the Byrds own origin, including drummer Michael Clarke having been initially recruited for his good looks, rather than for his musical ability with some fans mistaking the track for being autobiographical , there's the jazz and psychedelia influenced "C.T.A.-102", the moody jazz-influenced "Everybody's Been Burned" , the wonderful Bob Dylan cover "My Back Pages" which would be the fourth song from Dylan's 'Another Side of Bob Dylan' album ,the Indian / Ravi Shankar inspired "Why" and of course the psychedelic "Mind Gardens"

And of course that adorable jangle of Jim McGuinn's Rickenbacker 370 model 12-string guitar makes this album
for mine

The Byrds peaked right here with this wonderful album

Maybe my tolerance for psychedelia has worn down over time, but there's some pretty painful stuff going on around a couple of timeless classics.

An excellent album from The Byrds. Younger than yesterday, really sees the band moving on. Opener, so you want to be a rock'n'roll star, is a sardonic take on the music business featuring trumpet from Hugh Masekela, and it's followed by, have you seen her face, one of Chris Hillman's best byrd songs. Elsewhere, there's hints of, sweetheart at the rodeo, on the countryfied, time between, and, the girl with no name, and, everybody's been burned, is a great David Crosby track. Unfortunately, another Crosby number, mind gardens, is atrocious, an awful attempt at something unconventional, it's the only moment on the LP that stops it from being a total classic. A pity, because everything else here is great, from the brilliant, thoughts and words, and an excellent Dylan cover in, my back pages. All in all, a very good album, just tarnished by a moment of indulgence from Crosby.

The lyrics are so enticing with such universal concepts. I'll be giving this album to my kids whenever those happen.

This album can be compared to "Revolver" and the "Notorious byrd brothers to "Sergeant Pepper". I think you will notice these similarities too. "Younger Than Yesterday" actualy is my favourite byrd album, becouse of it's variety and consistency. From folk rock (Have you seen her face), psychedelic rock (Toughts and words), baroque folk rock (Renaissance Fair) to the Hillman's country and western "Time between". Let's not forget the hit "So you want to be a rock and roll star" and Crosby's finest composition "Everybody's has been burned". So many great songs.

The lead-off track is a jangle pop classic. Their cover of My Back Pages is more listenable than Dylan's original.

Now the Byrds are really starting to get interesting. Shame that their lineup never was consistent after this (though Gram Parsons was a great addition).

Really good album, with bits of country and psychedelia in it. My favorite song on here is Have You Seen Her Face.
