The seminal 1972 debut album from the quintessential American power pop band now back on domestic vinyl for the first time in a generation! Many critics praise the album's elegant vocal harmonies and refined songcraft (frequently drawing comparisons to the British Invasion groups of the 1960s, including The Beatles, The Kinks and The Who). In 2003, the album was ranked number 438 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Rolling Stone magazine also ranked the song 'Thirteen' as number 396 on its 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
