12 tracks, 27 minutes of music total. Kinda digging that as a musical ideal. That said, this album is hella dated. The opening track asserts that the reason that women are created is because "Girls, girls, girls were made to love." In fact, that's the reason some of them are 5'2" with blue eyes (apparently a physical ideal) and it's also why you can't help but watch them walk down the street like a creeper. Because they were made for it, see? Also, if you're wondering if you should get physical with a woman, you should just remember: that's what they were made for. As a lyrical choice, that's pretty much awful. Luckily, it's a 2-minute song. The album as a whole isn't bad from a musical standpoint. It just has the unfortunate stench of mid-century American chauvanism and white people problems all over the lyrics. I was going to still give it a 3-star review until I got to the cover of Lucille. They killed all the swing and swagger of the original Little Richard version. It's so white it hurts. I hate it. The only thing saving this album from a flat 1-star rating is that the music is good.

This is a really classic sounding album! The vocal performances are amazing, very heartfelt and emotional, I love the way they harmonize together. I can't really say much more about this album other than this is a classic jam thats fun to listen to but doesn't offer much artistically.

Oh, here we go! I've always loved the Everly Brothers. Classic '60s sockhop simp energy. Put these tunes on while you think about asking your gal to go steady. The brothers harmonize really well, and I don't know if I've ever heard a bad song from them. This album is nice, it's got a couple famous hits, but not my favorites. Also, I didn't realize that "Love Hurts" was originally their song but it makes total sense. This is a refreshing change of pace from the last few albums--as much as I like artists with an experimental/artistic edge, this pop stuff just goes down smooth. Favorite tracks: Made to Love, Love Hurts, Cathy's Clown. Album art: I love classic albums from the '60s with this framed look. The picture is funny, are these saucy boys trying to coordinate a double date for the prom? Oh, you. The sticker shown on this site is hilarious: "ten other great songs for listening or dancing." Listen or dance, the choice is yours. 4/5

I have a soft spot for catchy melodies and close harmony, both of which are found in abundance here. It's bubble gum and bobby socks all the way, but it's a trip worth taking.

Very modest, pure, elegant, innocent style of optimistic dreamers. Two tenors singing harmonic thirds alternated with the twin riffs of their acoustic guitars, accompanied by a modest rhythm section. The album in short: never a solo, never an out-of-tune note, never an electric arrangement. Succinct and elegant, simple and refreshing, the brothers represented the familiar romance of the average good American boy, neither idol nor rebel. (7/10) Favourite Tracks: Cathy's Clown, Baby What You Want Me to Do

Girls were made to love…the opening line of this album. We are safely in the 60’s in America where women were the object of every song. Heck, even listening to this album constitutes going on a date with these two fellas. The album cover is a classic 60’s vibe but I wonder which brother was allowed to hold the phone? Are they calling a girl? Telling her she is meant to be loved? “Back in my day, 12 songs got you 28 minutes” is probably what the producer for David Bowie said referencing this whimsical and outdated album. Second song is perfect for a slow dance (just make sure you are at arm’s length from your date!) Oh now I get it on the album length! I bet most girls back then were not allowed to listen to music for longer than 30 minutes otherwise they would turn into sex demons or something. Don’t get me wrong, I love old music and this feels like Buddy Holly mixed with Dewey Cox. I just think it is really funny how people acted back then compared to now. Imagine listening to this back then and losing your mind because it was so boundary pushing. It’s called Rock but I’d probably categorize these oldies as dust. Looking at the song list I see three different women’s names. Who was dating who and when? Was there a “two dates” situation with these brothers? Did they ever have to parent trap their dates? Uh oh…I’m now hearing the birth of two incels in So How Come (No One Loves Me). Fellas, you can’t as why and then have your next song be you telling Donna what to do. And then say she has had a Change of Heart but that might be because you changed, not her. And then you finish out the album saying you don’t want Cathy’s love anymore and call her new man a Clown which we all know what that meant in the 60’s. I love a lot of oldies, but I don’t plan on listening to this again.

First off, another really horrible album cover. Can it get any sleazier? Yes it can. All of the lyrics are about dating and might already have been old-fashioned in the early sixties - sexism and double standards abound. The music itself really didn't age well and is just incredibly boring. Apparently the Every Bros don't know how to end songs either. Almost every single one just fades out on chorus. But that also leads us to the biggest positive point of the album: the songs do end and quite quickly so. At least it doesn't just keep dragging on.

 But, on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? ...

Nice short doo wop album. This album, down to the title, is crafted to appeal to teenagers of the time. Nevertheless, the harmonies are crisp and precise. It is immediately clear that their influence was immense. The Everly Brothers influenced the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and Simon and Garfunkel and I'm sure many others.

Despite the clean cut image, it’s fairly clear that these boys just have one thing on their mind: sex, sex, sex. All the girls in the world are there to be enjoyed. We will harmonise and tell you about it. Proper Americana, fusing country and rock, this is drive-ins and diners and Bobby socks and even some sinister undertones a la David Lynch. Compelling listening.

Not sure if this one should be on the list or its predecessor (It's Everly Time) but this one seems to be a very good choice nevertheless. A couple of 3* songs, a couple of 4* songs and quite a few 5* songs. This would be a 4* album normally ..but the 5* songs are super 5* songs covered by many others (think Love Hurts, Stick With Me Baby, Cathy's Clown). So a 5* rating is very justified.

This is a band who had so many great hits due to their lyrics; Wake up Little Susie, Cathys Clown, Dream Dream, Lucille, Till I Kissed her! So I am cutting them slack on this album of puffted put together songs. They were like The Beach Boys who too, were pushed into fast hits, fast profits $$£. I think it’s important to look at the when and why these albums were produced. My desire is qualitative not quantitative. Great acoustic and good group performances. Listen to their greatest hits and you’ll see their true talent. And in my own words”I am awake-tee hee...Suzi”

There are several true classics of the early years of rock and roll on this album. There's also more filler than I'd like to see, but that was pretty common for pop albums in the pre-Beatles years. It's still a pretty top notch album, with lots of catchy hooks and those classic Everly harmonies. I enjoyed this. Fave Songs: Cathy's Clown, Love Hurts, Stick With Me Baby, That's Just Too Much, Made to Love, Always It's You, A Change of Heart

Growing up in the 90s this stuff seemed ridiculously dated even then (weird that music hasn't comparatively changed anywhere near as much since), so it does sound ancient and kinda silly in that "She's my girl and we're going steady" way. I can't imagine that the world this album sells me ever really existed. That being said, I don't buy the "ugh this sounds so white" nonsense in so many reviews here. Do you dinguses also complain that Curtis Mayfield albums sound "ugh so black"? Course ya fuckin don't. You wouldn't dare. Get your heads out of your arses. Anyway, this really wasn't my thing but it was undeniably catchy. Those vocal harmonies were a bit sickly sweet but impeccably done and at 27min or whatever it's the perfect length for an album I've never heard before. 3/5.

The Everly Brothers are among my favorite traditional pop bands of the 50s and early 60s. From the romantic guitar to the longing harmonized vocals, these songs are suited for both casual listening and dancing with a loved one. It's an easy listen, less than a half-hour long, and a mix of fast dance hits, slow romance, and even some blues. Lyrics are abysmal: the Everlys and Bryants can't write for shit. But I do prefer the melodies of their original songs over the covers; they put significantly more effort into their own songs. "Cathy's Clown" is a classic I grew up listening to, great instrumental and chorus. "That's Too Much" sounds like an early Beatles song, but I can't remember which one. "Love Hurts" also has an early Beatles vibe. There aren't any tracks that sounded awful, but I guess I just like their style too much. Favorites: Sigh Cry Almost Die, Always Its You, Love Hurts, Cathy's Clown

It's not bad for what it is. It's 50's love/pop music. It's kind of comical to listen to this (listed as released in 1961) and then listen to some of the music that would come on like a tidal wave later on in the psychedelic 60's. It's not hard to understand how music evolved from those two decades. Regardless for what it is this is fine, just not for me.

12 songs in 28 minutes. I liked this. But it’s still a conundrum.. i feel that it’s too long of an album. The brothers’ harmonizing is great. The music itself is very signature sound from the time.

12 songs in 27 minutes. This date with the Everly Brothers gets straight to the point and doesn't mess around with any foreplay. "Girls were made to love" within the first 30 seconds. 50s and early 60s objectification of women may have been a different flavor, but it's still there. Did they date one woman simultaneously? Or is this a double date? Either way, I don't think this date went very well. Things get pretty sad a few songs in. Gosh, Everly Brothers, who hurt you? They both sound equally sad. Either both ladies from the double date double ditched, or Phil or Don are dragging their brother down into a pity hole with them. I got excited by the pace of "Lucille" at the start, hoping they found a new lady to love. But nope, they're begging her to return. These guys are getting a little desperate. Should we be concerned? (Retroactively?) Ugh, then Donna ditches you for Johnny!? You can't catch a break! Although, the common element here seems to be the Everlys. Maybe they're the problem in these relationships. Don eventually found fleeting happiness, married twice in the 60s and 70s, but single from 1970-1997. Phil was also married three times, and single for most of the 80s and 90s. It must've been hard being a dreamy-voiced country rock superstar.

Boy oh boy are love songs creepy in the 50s. "Made to Love" got me off on a real bad foot. Interesting to hear, I guess.

I thought this was nice, what did you guys think?

Nice enough. Can see how the vocal harmonising on songs like Love Hurts would've influenced The Beatles. Though I get the impression that even when this album was released it wasn't particularly groundbreaking.

If I was a teenage girl in the 60s maybe I'd listen to this, but unfortunately I'm not

Pretty bad. Dated both culturally and sonically. Not sure what value this album brings to the list. To me it’s very clearly made for commercial purposes.

There are a lot of 60s albums that hold up very well even today. Unfortunately this is not one of them.

Just sounds dated. So so so dated. Am sure it is good, just not for me.

I’m not a fan of this ‘rock around the clock’ 50’s/60’s teen boppy music at all. Every track on this album is as expected after listening to the first couple. They all stick to the same script and they bore me to tears. 1 Star!

Probably amazing in its day but it sounds old and I'm not having it.

If the only somewhat memorable song on an album is done a lot better by other people later, I don't think this album should be on the list.
