Fascinating

Though they certainly could have, they didn't just phone these in. A sparkling collection of material that shows Gerry and Dewey's impeccable taste in forebears and peers who write better songs than they do. Their instantly-recognizable harmonies—Gerry's thin, reedy tenor and Dewey's gets-better-with-age baritone—and some tweaks in the arrangements breathe some new life into classics that form the foundation for the four decades of America's career.

Excellent!

After all these years the harmonies and voices are still there. If you look at the track list and think that Back Pages is just another 'covers album', you're wrong. With most songs they've managed to give the America versions an atmosphere of their own - even iconic songs like 'America' and 'Caroline No'. A great listen throughout. I especially like their version of The Fountains Of Wayne's 'A Road Song'. A highly recommended album.

I was intrigued the moment I found out that America was releasing an album of cover songs from some of their favorite bands and artists. When the release date came and I downloaded Back Pages, I was completely amazed at how Dewey and Gerry had taken such an eclectic set of songs spanning several decades and genres and made them into a cohesive collection of tunes that flow oh-so-nicely. I was also impressed by how they were able to keep true to the spirit of the original artists while at the same time making each song their own. America never ceases to amaze me. Far from being a stale band living off from past successes and glory, America just keeps getting better.
