Bicycle

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rodney Batdorf
For Bicycle, Livingston Taylor assembled a diverse backing group which features his brother James and dug into a set of songs that were rootiser and more eclectic than much of his previous work. Taylor tries his hand at the blues and country, jazz and folk on Bicylce. The results are mixed -- Taylor is at his best when he keeps his ambitions modest, since that reflects the size of his gift -- but they are enjoyable, particularly when the melodies are sweet. On the whole, it's an album that his fanbase will appreciate, but it doesn't break any new ground, even though it tries to.
