iTunes Review

Harry Nilsson’s early career is divided by two personalities. The first existed in the late '60s and early '70s, when he was a bright-eyed singer and songwriter, brimming with ideas and energy. This person gradually morphed into the Nilsson of the mid- and late '70s, irritable and sullen, weighed down by addiction and frustration. At the moment where it mattered most, Nilsson was able to fuse these two aspects of his life, making Knnillssonn, his final album for RCA, a work of disarming truth and poignancy. It was the first album completely written and arranged by Nilsson since 1972’s Son of Schmilsson and it echoes that album with its grand orchestral arrangements — there are also hints of Nilsson’s calypso-inflected collaborations with Van Dyke Parks. And yet, Knnillssonn is not quite like anything else in his catalog. There is a sleepiness and resignation inherent in the album that makes the listener know that the singer understood this might be his curtain call. But the music is steady and full, even valiant, like an old schooner cutting across the bay once again.

A Hidden, Late Nilsson Gem

It's obvious that Nilsson put a degree of time and care into this album not seen since his early '70s peak. These songs sound the freshest of any of his albums thanks to the unusual strings & percussive production. The artist's wit and voice are in top form here, with clever works like "Who Done It" and some of his most moving songs (like "All I Think About is You" and "Perfect Day"). Throughout it's a pleasing blend of fine songcraft, vocals, backing music, not to mention a hint of Nilsson's lunatic side. (see "I Never Thought I'd Get This Lonely," another favorite.)

One of his best.

I've been listening to this album since '77 when I happened to pick up a test pressing from RCA. Beautifully rich sounding production, strings, acoustic guitar/bass, even a childrens choir. And of course, some of his wittiest material to date. SO happy to see it finally available here on iTunes. GET IT! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

All I think About Is You

This is the most beautiful song ever!

Biography

Born: June 15, 1941 in Brooklyn, NY

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s

Although he synthesized disparate elements of both rock and pop traditions, singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson was at heart a maverick whose allegiance belonged to neither. His initial series of albums in the late '60s made him a personal favorite of the Beatles, who found a natural affinity with his knack for catchy melodies, witty lyrics, and extraordinary vocal range. Thought of as a songwriter first and a performer second, he became a pop star himself in the late '60s and early '70s with "Everybody's...
