Great pickup

"The Daily Planet"

I like the energy of this one. I also like when the backup vocals disagree with Arthur by saying "face" when he says "hands."

4.5/5

"The Good Humor Man He Sees Everything Like This"

Okay, so like I'm biased, but yes the 7th best song on the album is perfect. Lush 60s string sections > most things.

5/5

"A House Is Not a Motel"

This would be the best song on most 60s albums. Deff rocks hard for a folk album, eh?

5/5

"Bummer in the Summer"

This one's built for speed. Love really knows how to climax a song.

5/5

"Maybe the People Would Be the Times or Between Clark and Hilldale"

Okay, now we're in "greatest songs of the 60s territory." If you don't love that brass section, then I don't even know. Also Spanish guitar

"Alone Again Or"

What -hippy- sadboys were like in the 1960s, I guess. Oddly relatable. Brass and Spanish guitar rules here [2]

5/5

"The Red Telephone"

I love that this is in the middle of the album because it's such a centerpiece thematically. The sarcastic "All of God's childrens gotta have their freedom," the themes of anti-war, race politics, ... hippiedom, it's all here, dramatic and beautiful.

5/5

"You Set the Scene"

Definitely has the whole "proto-prog" thing going on. It changes sections and tempo as it sings about how change is eternal, and man does it work. I wonder if when considered if this would be in my top 10 songs of the 1960s. "And for everyone who thinks that life is just a game. Do you like the part you're playing?" Seems cliche nowadays, but in the 60s, questioning your role in society was at the epicenter for a lot of people, especially in comparison with the 50s. It's lovely when counterculture pushes back against repressive norms.
