Along with Stoned Soul Picnic, this may very well be the 5th Dimension's finest album. Home to one of their finest singles ever — the Bacharach/David "One Less Bell to Answer," on which Marilyn McCoo gives the vocal performance of her career — the record also contains the surprisingly funky and rocking "Puppet Man." Some great covers also include Dave Mason's "Feelin' Alright," Jimmy Webb's gorgeous "This Is Your Life," and Laura Nyro's anthemic "Save the Country." This vibe is echoed by the album's centerpiece, a medley of "A Change Is Gonna Come" and "People Gotta Be Free" preceded by "The Declaration." It's an ambitious suite, yet one that works well; it provides a great marriage between the group's pop leanings and the counterculture of the late '60s. Progressive, yet still encapsulating, which is the 5th Dimension's sunny appeal, Portrait is a minor masterpiece. Famed expressionist artist Leroy Neiman's appropriate cover and liner paintings are the icing on the cake.
A Love Like Ours - 5th-D
Their individual voices, collective harmonies along with their melodic style of music made their sound totally, beautifully unique from any other. They truly were in another dimension. The magic of their music could speak softly to a child or transcend across the spectrum to whole nation in turmoil; or even as this song did in speaking about the tug of war between two loves! I will always treasure this group who had "The Sound".
