The beauty of this album is that all four Monkees contribute different styles and yet it all comes together in a cohesive whole. For creating imagery and evoking nostalgia, it's hard to beat "Pleasant Valley Sunday". The lyrics say it all so simply and so clearly. One listen, and you are back to suburbia, sunshine and backyard barbecues.

"Love Is Only Sleeping", "The Door Into Summer" and "What Am I Doing Hangin' Round" are among the best Monkee songs featuring Mike's singing. But he may have saved his best for last with his soft and touching vocal on "Don't Call On Me". On these songs, the Monkee's songwriting team really came up with some especially meaningful lyrics.

As Mike's presence increased, Micky's decreased, and he sings lead on just three songs. But all of them are winners. The near perfect "Pleasant Valley" has already been mentioned. "Words" is a dark and haunting little tune, featuring Peter's background vocals. Micky's rendition of Nesmith's "Daily Nightly", is just pure crazy psychedelia.

Of course Davy has his tunes too. He's probably at his best when he is able to combine dancing with his singing, as was the case when songs were performed on the program. "Cuddly Toy" and "Star Collector" are examples of this.
