The Hollies - Another Night

After 12 years, the Hollies' vibrant harmonies (derived from the Everly Brothers, but with an added third part) remain unsurpassed. They've always had a knack for constructing and rearranging concise, melodic songs that display that vocal work in top form. Although they can rock when they want to, their forte remains the big ballad. These are full-bodied songs, unrelated to the flaccid "I Honestly Love You" brand of MOR stagnating today's airwaves. Another Night features a bumper crop of beat ballads -- it may be their most impressive album to date. Of the five slow songs, their version of "Sandy" shines as a tour de force while only the maudlin "Lucy" is subpar.

- Ken Barnes, Rolling Stone, 5/22/75.

Bonus Review!

From the initial British invasion only four groups survive in a meaningful way today: the Rolling Stones, Who, Kinks and Hollies. Here, the Hollies come up with their most ambitious and well rounded effort in several years, serving up a set of songs dealing with characters and situations of the city without turning the set into a boring concept effort and utilizing the distinctive Allan Clarke lead vocals and trademarked three part harmonies of the group to best advantage. Top notch string arrangements, tasteful use of horns, and the acoustic quality the band has favored recently are all here. The best cuts are the ballads and easy rockers the group has recently been associated with, and the set is as skillfully commercial as the band has always been. Expect AM and FM exposure. Best cuts: "Sandy," "Second Hand Hangups," "I'm Down," "Give Me Time," "Lucy."

- Billboard, 1975.
