iTunes Review

Share the Land (1970) testifies to the Guess Who’s strength and resiliency as a band. After parting company with co-founder Randy Bachman, the Canadian combo quickly recruited twin lead guitarists Kurt Winter and Greg Leskiw. The resulting tracks match rousing radio-oriented songs with heavier, less commercial fare. Burton Cummings applies his affable wail to such galvanizing tunes as “Hang On to Your Life,” “Hand Me Down World” and the title tune, spurring his band mates into big harmony-laden choruses. He detours into a little lounge jazz ambiance on “Moan for You Joe,” then joins in an ambitious rock excursion on “Three More Days.” Share the Land gives plenty of room for the new members to prove their mettle, with Winter laying down no-nonsense blues riffs and Leskiw taking a lighter, more acoustic tack. “Coming Down Off the Money Bag/Song of the Dog” is an example of the latter — this cheerfully countrified ditty invokes the back roads of the group’s native Manitoba. The Guess Who knew how to make solid meat-and-potatoes rock with both muscle and taste, and they rarely did it better than on Share the Land.

Customer Reviews

What's the age of the idiots who review these albums? 12?

Songs don't age well? C'mon! It's history. It was in a time of social unrest and opposition to a war. I seriously doubt the credibility of the iTunes reviewers. I believe the Guess Who had tremendous talent vocally and instrumentally - and they had depth to their songs. It's amazing to me that your critics jump Dave Loggins's debut album calling it "the Band-lite." Obviously a slam on one end of the spectrum for being commercial, then pull a comment out of the hat about the Guess Who. I D I O T S. Hire some older reviewers to cover aged albums.

Get a music reviewer.

I keep on reading music reviews from iTunes that don't even come close to those of the people that listen to the music, every review here has 5 stars.

Thanks For The Memories

The tour from this album was my first concert ever at the Rochester War Memorial. The album is great - Cummings voice is excellent and the guitar sound is much better than expected after Randy B. left the band. Everyone talks about American Woman as the definitive lp from this band but I have always liked this better.
