The 5th Dimension - Portrait LP 180 Gram Vinyl

In order to establish into which dimension this band with its promising name was trying to move, it might be a good idea to define its musical field. Although, or maybe precisely because, the colorful "flower power" cover suggests the happy-go-lucky hippie world, the 5th Dimension cannot be pigeon-holed as regards its musical style.

All the numbers come from varying stylistic directions and are refreshingly different and well-contrasted in character. Alongside the funky, rock title "Puppet Man" and the groovy "Feelin' Alright?" there are soul-like, provocative, solidarity songs such as "Save The Country" and "People Gotta Be Free."

Of course romantic pop ballads typical of the times have also found their niche here, such as "This Is Your Life" and Burt Bacharach's hit "One Less Bell To Answer." The vocal qualities of soloists Billy Davis Jr., Marylin McCoo Davis and Florence LaRue Gordon certainly deserve to be heard over and over again. No wonder, then, that this album has often been praised as the best the group ever recorded.
