Album Review

After wresting control of the Monkees from Don Kirschner and recording the very good Headquarters album as a mostly self-contained unit, the bandmembers returned to using studio musicians to augment their sound as well as looking outside the group for the majority of the songs on their fourth album, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. Whatever the reason for the decision, the resulting album is one of their best. Filled with hooky pop like "She Hangs Out" and the Harry Nilsson-penned "Cuddly Toy," psychedelic ravers "Daily Nightly" and "Star Collector" (both of which feature the newly invented Moog synthesizer), Mike Nesmith-produced rockers ("Love Is Only Sleeping"), and ballads (the lovely "Don't Call on Me"), the album is filler-free and fun-filled. That it contains three of their finest songs ("Words," "Pleasant Valley Sunday," and the song that "invented" country-rock for better or for worse, "What Am I Doing Hangin' 'Round?") means that not only is it one of the Monkees' best, it is one of 1967's best. To think that both this album and Headquarters came out the same year! Most bands would be lucky to have two albums this good come out their entire career. Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. is a must-have for any fan of smart, fun, and exciting '60s pop. It doesn't get much better than this. [In 2007 Rhino gave the album a double-disc deluxe revamp with mono and stereo versions, the bonus tracks from the 1995 reissue, and a bunch of newly created stereo mixes that often utilize previously unheard vocals. The set is aimed at collectors looking to replace their copies of Rhino's 1995 reissue, and it succeeds. It also serves as a fascinating document of the group and, more importantly, some of the best pop music the 1960s have to offer.]

Customer Reviews

Where are the mono mixes?

The new stereo remasters are great, the best so far (5 stars worth), but charging $15.99 without including the remastered mono mixes of the deluxe CD package is a rip off which I blame Rhino/Warner for more than Apple. This is a great album, the Monkees best and the mono mixes are worth having if you are a fan of this album as I have been since 1972 when I taped The Door Into Summer on to my dad's reel to reel from the family TV by holding a microphone to the teeny tiny speaker. That's low tech as you get. The Door Into Summer mono mix is superior to the stereo mix due to limitations of 1967 studio technology, more punch, clearer vocals, the piano riff front and center. The mono mixes of Star Collector, Pleasant Valley Sunday, Daily Nightly are slightly different than the stereo mixes. For those who grew up with the mono albums, the full featured CD version of this package, which includes nice new liner notes as well, is a better investment.

Best Monkees Album

The iTunes review of this album isn't entirely correct. Yes, the Monkees brought in session players to help augment them on this but Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and Micky Dolenz all play guitar throughout the album. Tork also plays bass and keyboards and Dolenz is definitely playing drums on "Cuddly Toy" and possibly "The Door Into Summer". Either way, this is easily their best album which features a rather innovative instrument for it's day: the Moog synthesizer. Micky Dolenz purchased one of the very first ones built and supposedly, this is the first pop album to feature it. Michael Nesmith shines as a songwriter / producer on many of the tracks- hence the reason this is the Monkees' finest achievement. As one reviewer asked: where are the mono mixes?!

Still great after 40 years

I received this cassette tape in '87 when the Monkees were making their resurgence. I played it non-stop, I'm surprised it's still in one piece. It was great 20 years after it came out, and still another 20 after. I also like the Monkees TV episodes from this time period the best. I think they're funnier and not so "corny". I still love The Monkees!

"Hey hey, we are the Monkees/You know we love to please/A manufactured image/With no philosophies." In 1968, the Monkees addressed their own reputation in the song "Ditty Diego (War Chant)," which summed up the bad rap they'd received in the music press since they first emerged in the summer of 1966. The Monkees were talented singers, musicians, and songwriters who made a handful of the finest pop singles of their day (as well as a few first-rate albums) and delivered exciting, entertaining live...
