Some excellent music. submitted by tbbrown76 on July 4, 2020, 10:07pm Great musician! Great music! A serious classic album. Don't miss it!
Highly recommended.

pretty good but not without flaws submitted by emilyb308 on July 30, 2020, 12:17pm There are some great songs on this album, but I don't find it as stand-out impressive as the one that preceded it (Tumbleweed Connection) or the one that followed it (Honky Chateau). Of course, Tiny Dancer, Levon, and Razor Face are wonderful. All the Nasties is very good too; the choir building up to the end gives me chills. But I can't even listen to Indian Sunset. Not only is it historically inaccurate, but it uses a word considered offensive by Native Americans. And in my opinion the original recording of Madman Across the Water (which is included as a bonus track on Tumbleweed Connection) is far superior to the version found here.
