The Monkees Music Vault's Review of "Head":

Overall Rating (Out Of 10): 2

Ok, I know what you are saying. I gave "Birds and Bees" a 3 and called it the worst album, and here I gave this one a 2. What gives? As far as I'm concerned, 7 songs do not constitue an album, so I don't see Head as one. Instead, I see this Jack Nicholson arranged mess as a complete waste of time and money. The Monkees could have released a soundtrack album similiar in style to the Beatles' soundtracks, but they didn't. Big mistake.

Three Best Tracks:

  1. Propinquity (I've Just Begun To Care)
  2. You And I
  3. Just A Game
Three Worst Tracks:
  1. Daddy's Song
  2. Ditty Diego
  3. Rosemarie


The Monkees Music Vault's Fantasy Version of "Head":

I think the Monkees would have been much better served releasing a full 12 song LP here, side 1 consisting of songs from the movie and side 2 containing six new tracks. And without a doubt, a second single would come from the new tracks.
