Monkees are underated because they will always be in the shadow of the beatles.
The monkees are a very very very talented group, has many great hits. I'm a believer is probably the most famous. this album truly has the great hits of the monkees. even though they will always be in the shadow of the legendary beatles, that dosn't mean they dont have good songs!!!
I had never heard of the Monkees, but this comepletely blew me away. Definitly worth your money!
Songs still relevant today
I discovered The Monkees as a little kid growing up in the 70's watching reruns of their t.v. show (which I would love to watch again!). As a result, I ended up with the albums (pre-cd of course) and listened to all the songs on this release, relishing them all. If anyone thinks The Monkees music is just frivolous bubblegum music with nothing to contribute to society, listen to Pleasant Valley Sunday, Shades of Grey or (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone. All of these songs having relevance to the state of our world today, locally and globally. Showing us that although some things change, our youngsters are always going to go the same thought processes, discoveries, questions, etc., that we went through, our parents went through, and our grandparents and so on. Just different clothes, different types of music. And all this music is just plain FUN! I love the Last Train..., Valleri, She, Mary, Mary, Your Auntie Grizelda, Listen to the Band, Words, For Pete's Sake and the Monkees Theme...heck, I really love them all!! The sixties were all about making statements and some of the most poetic, political lyrics were penned then. There was no need to scream, swear, threaten or say hateful things. Much of the music and lyrics of this era were simple (not simplistic), beautiful, meaningful. The Monkees contributed greatly to that genre and I love them as much today as I did thirty years ago.
