The Monkees Present

by: The Monkees

Like Instant Replay, The Monkees Present was an incoherent collection of pop and country-rock. Although most of the album was well produced but bland, Mike Nesmith's contributions, particularly "Listen to the Band," indicated that he was continuing to grow as a songwriter. However, his handful of songs couldn't save the album from being a rather desultory affair. After the record's release, Nesmith left the band to pursue a solo career. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
