Don pilots this album into the sky for an 8 minute Pie, then grabs the yoke and flies the plane straight into the ground. Once the music dies on track 1 it's not coming back to life. Don tries CPR on the Pie-duplicate Everybody Loves Me, but its just chest compressions on a corpse. Beyond the timeless Pie singalong, I think Don also deserves a shout out for creating the "rock is dead" narrative that comes up every decade, and then rock reinvents itself slightly and is hyped as returning. Rock is really dead now, though, and that's ok because we still have the Mayonnaise. C-

American Pie by Don McLean (1971) Most boomers are so familiar with the opening track “American Pie” and the third track “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)”, that I recommend listening to this album starting with the fourth track “Crossroads”, then proceeding to the end before hearing tracks one through three. It’s a rewarding experience. As a a folk/rock singer/songwriter, Don McLean surpassed his mentors (Pete Seeger et al.) in several notable ways. His voice is resonant to the point of being powerful without being strong. His acoustic guitar stylings are well chosen and performed. His poetry is highly descriptive, allusive, and evocative. And it is sung with phrasing that is conversational, spontaneous, and varied. One can easily imagine that his live performance of these songs would inspire other great songs in turn. (McLean’s concert rendition of track six [“Empty Chairs”] was allegedly the inspiration for “Killing Me Softly” performed by Lori Lieberman, Roberta Flack, Lauryn Hill, and others.) The album is superbly recorded, with microphones capturing the tiniest tidbits of resonance and timbre in voice and guitar, from one edge of the fretboard to the other. Pianist Warren Bernhardt (on “Crossroads”) puts the ‘piano’ in ‘pianoforte’. And the engineers at The Record Plant caught it all. Even after fifty years, “Vincent” draws a tear from my eye still. Perhaps it always will. In several ways, the famous opening title track “American Pie” is one of the two weakest cuts on the album (the other being “Everybody Loves Me, Baby”, for similar reasons). Is it possible for a poem like “American Pie” to be too cryptically allusive and cheaply ambiguous? Do some of the alliterations and rhymes border on triteness? Can a chorus can be repeated once or twice too often in an 8:33 recording? Even if the answer to all these questions is ‘no’, McLean’s delivery of the backbeat rock ambience is second-tier. Given that his purpose was to convey a sense of loss, it could have been presented in a less sprightly way. Nevertheless, it’s still a classic. For the identification of the allusions, see Wikipedia references to the mountains of literature on this. My overall take on the meaning of the song “American Pie” is that if you don’t want to be disillusioned, you should avoid having illusions in the first place. But if one listens to this album in all its intended unity, and not dominated by two ‘hits’, one will experience folk with soul—a twofer suitable for any old day. 4/5

I’m reminded how much shorter albums are enjoyable. At 36 minutes this feels digestible. Also weird al is deeply ingrained in my psyche. I keep thinking of his version of American pie. Also also, the piano on the title track is underrated. Bluesy and great. “Till tomorrow” is a surprisingly short and sweet song. “The grave” is an eerily beautiful song. “Babylon” is another eerily beautiful song. Very good album. One I might return to that I wouldn’t have otherwise not for this project. 4 stars. Maybe even more if decimals were allowed.

This guy could write a sad song. American Pie is of course an iconic song, but many of the other songs on here are beautiful and heartbreaking. Vincent in particular can bring me to tears just listening to it. 3.5 stars, rounding to 4.

My mom had this album and I listened to it as a kid. I can't deny the lightning in a bottle he caught with the opening track. Quite an achievement. Other than that I like the more raucous "everybody loves me" but listening to this years later, nostalgia can't save most of this for me. Generally not a fan of the folky acoustic singer songwriter thing. If he had a more rocking band behind him and more interesting arrangements I might like it more. Sounds like it could use a remaster to my ear.

After leading off with one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, sing-along songs of all-time, this thing turns into a snooze hard and fast. It's almost like those 8 minutes and 42 seconds of the title track were a tease. I guess that song along gives this album a spot on this list. But McLean should have titled this album Ambien because it'll put you to sleep in a hurry.

Starts off with "American Pie," which I believed is overplayed, but has an interesting history. "Vincent" is a beautiful song about Vincent Van Gogh and drew tears from me as I have contemplated the purpose of living. The rest of the album has melancholy folk tunes, with "Everybody Loves Me, Baby" throwing off the vibe a little, but resettles as the album finishes.

I really loved this album way more than I expected to. Don's fingerpicked guitar playing is smooth and thoughtful, and accompanies his voice really well. His singing is great, with carefully considered melodies and delivery of lyrics that are really poetic and laid bare. He tells a story, and you get sucked in - pair all this with a really good use of strings and other intrumental features throughout the album... it's just great

Fantastic voice!! Vincent makes me cry. American pie kicks ass. I also liked the last two songs a lot. He's good at the slow tender acoustic songs. A couple of the slow songs sounded a bit too similar imo (especially empty chairs and vincent, for example); wish he cut out a slow song or two and added a more upbeat one, perhaps. that's just me. but still deserving of a five i think.

I was looking forward to listening this one when I saw it on the list, but then enjoyed it even more than expected. The voice and songwriting are top notch and this album is easily among the best singer-songwriter albums I've ever heard. I listened to it a second time right after finishing the first spin. The instrumentation is sparse with bare bones arrangements, but every note is exactly where it should be to showcase the pure feeling distilled into every track. I can see how people may be disappointed, as it starts off with the stellar American Pie and then every other track on the album seems to be a lot less energetic. But it makes up for that with serene, melancholy beauty and feeling.

Fucking finally. A good, classic American album to just revel in. And by American, I mean heavy on the ballads and storytelling. It's a tradition that this record follows so satisfyingly well. And I'm happy to say that the entire album, not just its calling card (which is "American Pie", duh) is fucking excellent. Every track is worth it. But my fave deep cut is "Everybody Loves Me, Baby." And may I say that if you don't like this album, then just know that everybody loves it, baby. What's the matter with you? Gladly giving this one five stars.

There was a time when I didn't like the song 'American Pie.' I heard it all the time and tuned it out every time. Then I listened to it and realized it was actually a beautiful song despite its length. I then figured that, on the album 'American Pie,' it would be the only good song. A one-hit record so to speak. Then I listened to the whole thing and realized it was actually a beautiful album. I'm sure people will complain that it's kind of a tone shift after the titular song, but if you embrace the slow, quiet nature of the rest of the album, it's a fantastic, calming listen.

I always laugh at Rach when she goes into a full rendition of the song American Pie because it just feels like something that has always existed and is about 3 hours long. I’m a bit familiar with Vincent, but I can’t say I’ve ever paid it much attention. I’m intrigued to hear the full album. Songs I already knew: American Pie, Vincent Favourite after listening: Vincent, American Pie, The Grave This is the second album during this music spree that hit me right in the heart. I’ll admit it, I started crying while listening to Vincent. Maybe it’s partly because I slept badly last night and had nightmares, so feel not quite all there this morning, but the outcome is the same. This song broke me a little. I did read a few user reviews before listening and the consensus seemed to be that this album only has one good song (no prizes for guessing which). I absolutely disagree with this. Maybe I’m wrong, but singers don’t tend to be as silky smooth with vocals any more like this used to be. I’d also feel bad if I didn’t comment on the excellent guitar composition in The Grave - it doesn’t sound hard by any means, but it’s perfect for what the song is. I wouldn’t necessarily say American Pie is perfect, but it’s not far from it.

Not only did Don McLean write two of my favourite tracks of all time - 'American Pie' and 'Vincent' - he also managed to put them on the same album. A record that stood upon the shoulder of the hippie movement of the late 60s but managed to create its very own long lasting cultural impact. McLeans voice is hauntingly beautiful - exemplified on the very visual anti-war track 'The Grave' - and his phrasings on the guitar matches it perfectly. His rendition of 'Babylon' as the closing track is also phenomenal. I don't have anything bad to say about this record at all.

Don McLean will always remind me of the year we (Danny) lived with Dan and Jason and Carmen. In spite of that, I love him. I was most familiar with his greatest hits album so it was fun to listen to this full album. 'American Pie' is pretty perfect to me and 'Vincent' always makes my voice break when I sing it. If ever an album made me want to sit by an open window in Spring after a long Winter it's this one. Simultaneously exhausted and hopeful. I really loved his performance of 'Babylon'. PS. He's still alive and touring! He's in Australia in April!

Баааай баай зис амэрикан пааай... Вообще поскольку надо бы делать развернутые рецензии, то расскажу историю. С творчеством Дона МакЛина я познакомился благодаря... группе Сплин. Да, я был огромным сплиноманом в школе, у меня даже кликуха "сплин" была классе в 6-7ом. Так вот, в 2016 году вышел кавер Васильева (точнее был исполнен на концерте) с переводом песни Vincent на русский: "Звёзды среди звёзд". Перевод меня очень тронул, а, открыв оригинал, оказалось, что он очень близкий. В общем сплошной кайф. А вообще эта песня вдохновлена картиной Ван Гога "Звёздная Ночь" и посвящена художнику. Маримба в ней - кайф! Если мы говорим о бард-роке, то вот это, имхо, то, как он должен быть сделан. Вспоминая Билли Брага, American Pie сделан в 100 раз лучше: и по текстам, и по музыке, и по сведению. Тексты здесь надо отдельно выделить, очень много сравнений и классных метафор. А особенно альбом красен настроениями: от лиричных баллад до кантри и блюза. Хз, вот даже пятерку что ли влепить... да, влепить!

Genre: Classic rock Review: The eponymous track from this album is one of my all-time favourites, but it also happened to be the only Don McLean track I had ever heard. But the rest of this album is pretty damn great by itself. A mix of cheerful tracks with quick, up-tempo beats and slower, introspective tunes makes for an album well worth its reputation as one of the greatest. Rating: 9/10

Before I went to bed last night, I saw this was the album on the slate for today and had already written it off. I figured it was only on here for the title track and understandably so. A lot can be said about the title track, as it’s one of the most impressive pieces of songwriting ever, so dense with metaphors, it will make your head spin. While probably overplayed and not exactly an everyday listen, it deserves all the praise it gets. Now that that’s out of the way, let me just say, I love the rest of this album. Without the title track, this album is an incredibly easy listen at only 26 minutes. It provides beautiful melodies and some truly heartfelt moments. And in case “American pie” didn’t have you sold, McClean continues to showcase his masterful songwriting in songs like “Vincent” and “the grave”. Heard before: American pie The good: AP, till tomorrow, vincent, the grave, pretty much everything Okay, I’ll say something bad about it: While it’s not a bad song, why was “everybody loves me, baby” on this album? It just seems out of place. It’s also unfortunate that the albums two weakest tracks (“sister Fatima” and “Babylon” are two of the last 3. I would’ve liked a stronger ending. Overall, this album seems to have gotten a raw deal, suffering from the success of the title track and forever left in its shadow. The world owes you an apology Mr. McLean; this album deserves better.

When this came out of the gate with "American Pie" I fully expected it to be a downhill coast from there. I was wrong. Turns out, Don's a beast of a songwriter. These songs are wonderfully written, beautifully performed, and exceptionally well recorded. Are they all "American Pie"? No, of course not. But there's not a dud in the bunch. Not even compared to the elephant in the room that is the title track. Surprisingly, I enjoyed the hell out of it. Full marks.

It sometimes mystified me why the long, inscrutable ("but the levee was dry") song "American Pie" had such an impact, but when my 16-year-old son sang all the lyrics along with the entire song this morning in the car (it lasted the entire commute, plus 30 more seconds that he insisted on finishing before he got out) it did really hit me how much it has connected with people for the last 50 years. This time I got to hear it for the first time in the context of a whole album, and it was a pretty wonderful experience. You might even say McLean was killing me softly with his song. (I always thought that song was inscrutable, too, but now I know.) I hadn't really listened closely to "Vincent" in a long time, but this time I could vividly picture each of the paintings he was singing about and Vincent's eyes of china blue (that one is less inscrutable now). Marvelous. All of the other songs (besides the beautiful, not-Boney-M., "Babylon") were new to me, and I could listen to them again and again. "Crossroads" was a song that particularly spoke to me today.

American Pie is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Don McLean, released by United Artists Records in October 1971. The album is a mix of folk and rock genres, with a soft rock, AM pop, and singer-songwriter style The album contains the chart-topping singles "American Pie" and "Vincent". The title track is an eight and a half minute, folk-rock epic, split over two sides of a single and leading off McLean's eponymous second album. The song is about the cultural and political decline of the US in the 1960s, a farewell to the American dream after the assassination of President Kennedy The song is full of sadness, joy, and subtle messaging to "The Day The Music Died" or the plane crash that sadly took the lives of Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens in the year 1959 .The album has a consistent listen, with no oddballs anywhere on the record.

Another fantastic album. I saw Don around 2019, and he was excellent. He played about a 15-minute version of the title track, which was a good old singalong. The album is so much more than one song though. Vincent is such a beautiful song. Interestingly not very well-known here in the Netherlands. Evokes powerful imagery, captures the sadness of Vincent's life. One of Tupac's favourite songs apparently. Crossroads, Empty Chairs, Babylon, and The Grave are also favourites, all quite depressing and thoughtful. He has a lovely voice, sweet and mellifluous, lovely guitar playing, and simple melodies.

There was a 2pac documentary (that came out last year) where he discussed that when he was younger and adventuring into different kinds he came across this song. This song was considered to be the "catalyst" of describing how Pac would feeling as a human. If there was something to fully encapsulate who he was as a human being this was the song to do it. Hearing that somebody else found out how to profoundly resonate with one of my favorite artists at that time I couldn't help but search for the song. That song's name: "Vincent" by Don McLean Once I heard it, it took one listen and zero convincing to believe that this is one of the greatest songs I've ever heard in my life and I needed to venture into this man Don McLean's discog and come to understand the person who made this song. It found a special way to share a similar experience between two different people in different periods of time and different periods of life many years separate from one another. That's the only way to describe this album: a perfect snapshot of the human experience. Don has a way of coming across melancholy with how he makes music, and there was no short of songs on here that show that, but at the same time you're feeling a little low he finds a way to make you feel ALIVE. There's a beauty in it that I can't put in the right words until you hear it and truly experience it yourself. All that I can repeatedly say is this shouldn't be a "Album to hear before you die" but a REQUIRED listen for being a human. Infinity out of 5 stars. A Perfect Album.

This was great and it's always awesome to see how political music in the states progressed, Everybody Loves Me, Baby instantly went into the regular rotation, great song the still pulls on the melodic stylings of the decades prior but in a completely new context in terms of production and songwriting.

Nacque tutto in un normale giorno in ufficio, il mio capo stava guardando un catalogo di sedie e improvvisamente vide la donna della sua vita. Fu un colpo di fulmine. Un collega si mise alla ricerca di nome di lei e infine lo trovò, tuttavia si scoprì che era deceduta in un incidente stradale poco tempo prima. Uscimmo dall'ufficio e cantammo insieme American Pie, non dimenticherò mai quel momento. Bye bye, miss American Pie

The title track is a classic. The rest is the type of Americana folk that I dig. I'll listen to this one again and wonder why I never bought it in a swap meet parking lot 30 years ago.

Since all I knew about this album was "American Pie" (which I've never been the biggest fan of), I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't pay much attention to the lyrics since I was working, but I found his voice really beautiful.
