I guess I hung around my sister and her friends too much in the '60s because I turned into a die-hard Monkees fan for life. I did like and still do like them more than the Beatles. This first album of theirs is a classic. Many songs have those Beatles-like low guitar string riffs that sound so cool but you never hear anymore from any groups. 'Take a Giant Step' is my favorite: deep and appealing in lyrics, chords, arpeggiated intro, and its Eastern scale solo. An outstanding feature of the CD is that all the bonus tracks are quite good. 'I Can't Get Her Off My Mind' actually sounds good, instead of annoyingly catchy version from the 'Headquarters' album. A couple of the songs still cook, despite their now-old Beatles-like sound: 'Let's Dance On' (copied from the Beatles' 'Twist and Shout') and 'Sweet Young Thing.'

'I have no more than I did before, but now I've got all that I need.'...what a great line! As a child of the 60's this brings me back....pure enjoyment...and you know what, these guys sound good. I'm embarrassed to say it, but I've always loved 'I wanna be free'...Don't fly too close to the sun!
