This one took me by surprise. I didn't know anything about Nilsson before today. Turns out people used to call him "The American Beatle" and The Beatles were on record saying that Nilsson was their favorite American group. Turns out, yeah, he sounds a lot like an american version of early 70s Beatles. Surprisingly good! Also, he's the guy who did the "lime in the coconut" song. I always wondered why that song had such a presence in pop culture. It's because Nilsson had an outsized presence in pop culture for a hot minute. But he never toured or played big concerts and, after Lennin was killed, he stepped away from the music industry (they were good buds, apparently). That said, there were some killer tracks on this album and, apart from the last two tracks, I really enjoyed listening to it.

Confession, "Gotta Get Up" was my morning alarm song for awhile. I'd heard this album a few times when my dad played it in the car. I always enjoyed it but it never made a huge impression on me other than that song, so I was ready to give it a 3. But then "Without You" came on and I couldn't stop myself from belting the hell out of that chorus, and I was like no yeah this is a 4! And lest we forget the man gave us the gift of "Coconut" on this record. Bless you for that absurdity Harry Nilsson. This album may not have had a ton of cultural impact or influence, but man is it a fun listen.

I want to know everything I can about the infamous "Lost Weekend" where John Lennon and Harry Nilsson did everything they could to drink themselves to death. Apparently Nilsson was such a legendary boozehound that all Lennon would have to say about the time was, "I was drinking with Harry Nilsson" and everyone knew exactly what he was talking about. Lennon had such admiration for Nilsson that he was willing to follow the man to the end of the earth. Listening to this album, you hear why Lennon (and apparently the other 3 Beatles) sung Nilsson's praises. The three hits are the standouts, especially "Jump Into The Fire". That one obtained legendary status for scoring the Ray Liotta paranoia coke montage in Goodfellas. I bet Harry Nilsson loved Goodfellas. If you're ever running late somewhere and find the need to go just a tad over the speed limit, I highly recommend scoring your trip to "Jump Into The Fire". You'll find yourself looking up and thinking that helicopters are following you. The song alone is almost enough to rate this baby as a 5 (well, that and the album cover). Back to that Lost Weekend with Harry and Lennon: Apparently video footage of the night Lennon and Nilsson got kicked out of the troubadour because they could not stop heckling the Smothers Brothers doesn't exist. That just breaks my heart. I bet I'd like a movie about their Lost Weekend as much as I love Goodfellas.

My favorite Nilsson album. Nobody sounds quite like him. Has a sort of timeless quality. Amazing voice and gorgeous arrangements. Incredible range on display here in terms of emotions/moods captured and influences that he's woven together with impeccable pop craftsmanship. I feel like he sort of went off the rails in some ways after this album but this is him at his absolute apex. Love the album cover too. It's so bravely honestly vulnerably human, especially for the time. So comfortable with himself/who he is. I feel like it was a comically self deprecating way to balance the sheer beauty of the music. That and poke fun of the egos of so many other music performers.

back in the seventies anybody could do the jamaican guy accent. people encouraged it even, hey man, do the coconut voice! Cmon haha! this poor fuck probably got asked to do the coconut voice at every party he ever went to and now all he has to show for it is a vaguely nauseating song. that's showbiz! three stars for you "mon" (just kidding, thats racist now)

Lots to say. Only listened to the original tracklist and skipped the bonus stuff. Great things: Variety of style (this album moves through rock, pop and blues) and variety of vibe (every song has a different feel), strong performance (Nilsson's voice is extraordinary), wide instrumentation (accordion, harmonica, brass, piano, normal rock rhythm section), just really excellent songs overall. Love that "Jump into the Fire" is one big rock jam song, but it messes with the signal volumes so you get this OTT bass solo and so the whole thing doesn't really drag, maybe my favourite song on here. Things that make this album stand out: The vocal is strong in the mix, but the lyrics are enigmatic, compact and weird, the subject matter is normally quite simple (getting up, driving to work, being sleepy, the moon, being down, being in love whatever) but hard to work out what individual lines mean coz he says unusual things, he wears a dressing gown on the album cover, and the album name is just taking the piss out of himself. Also, this guy writes a beautiful song like "Without You" but follows it up with some cautionary tale about limes and coconuts. That shit is whiplash-level jarring and I love it, and I can't stay mad at him coz his voice is just excellent and the whole thing makes me laugh. Every song has grown on me after multiple listens. I really wanna listen to more of this so gotta be five stars.

This is intriguing! It sounds like the sort of indie folk rock that had its moment in the 90s, like the Lemonheads when they stopped going punk. And yet it's not quite possible to say this would have influenced those 90s groups because the legend of this album is that it lingered in obscurity until a 90s rerelease. The production is bright and the album has an enjoyable pace. Give me this slice of the mid 70s that sounds just as fresh 45 years on.

What an unexpected delight. I love the way "Without You," probably the definitive modern love song, is followed by the playful absurdity of "Coconut," then "Jump Into the Fire" takes us on a psych-rock odyssey. And it does all this without ever losing its focus or missing a beat.

This is a symphonic pop masterpiece. Harry Nilsson employs techniques from Brian Wilson, the Beatles, and Phil Spector to create an idiosyncratic album that is occasionally silly, and always well produced and arranged. The lush orchestration complements the close harmonies perfectly to create something that has commercial appeal yet pushes the genre forward.

Think of this as the twee, desperate ramblings of an alcoholic American trying to keep up with the British invasion, then you may see the beauty of it as I do. Sure, it's 70% utter bobbins, fuelled by frozen margaritas and too many meetings with record execs, in the heat and ennui of affluent 70s California. Sure, some of those earworms are sung loud and desperately in the halls of asylums for the insane. But you can be sure when you've ratched Russian Doll and Gotta Get Up starts up for the seven thousandth time, a little smile will creep across your face and your your will tap along.

4.0 - “Without You” is an indication of the quality of songs on this album. Every song is well composed, many take interesting risks or even seem built on a risk, the synthesized organ sounds come through as confident and bassy as early Elton John. Vocals are sharp and I’d put him up against Mariah on “Without You”, he just crushes on that track.

I'm not sure why but was expecting this to be...well, more Scandinavian! Having said that with the exception of the over use of an accordion on the first song, its quite good. Beatle-esque. Solid 3/5 Extra point as in the 2nd half of this album it really ups its game 4/5

Sounds waaaaay ahead of its time. Right from the first track. Some songs sound like something you'd hear on the radio now. Can hear some Beatles influence. Decent songs though overall. I recognised 'Without You' and 'Coconut'. Struggled whether to give this a 3 or a 4 cos its not massively my kinda genre but as a whole album it is really well done, feels like a bit of an artistic masterpiece. So, 4/5

I'm finding it exceedingly hard to rate this album. On the one hand, it contains some great songs (Gotta get up; Coconut; Jump into the fire; Early in the morning). On the other hand, it also contains some kind of whiny songs that I definitely thought about skipping (Without you; I'll never leave you). However, he did name this album Nilsson Schmilsson, which also deserves at least another half star. Let's settle for 4.5 stars then, which I will round down to 4.

Opening track is very familiar, didn't know Harry Nilsson but it's music that you've definitely heard in movies/tv. Poppy classic rock, a guy and his keyboard and occasionally a guitar in the mix. Kind of fluctuates between jaunty energetic tunes and some more slow/sad tunes. Some real bops in the mix, good energy and you can really feel how deep he is into the music as he's playing and giving it his all when he sings. Only one that I really didn't like was the last song on the album. Everything else was enjoyable and brought a lot of different styles and emotions to the album.

There were a couple of occasions where I laughed due to surprise, so audacious could Nilsson be with some of his vocal melodies. An extraordinary voice. The same cannot be said for the music, which is quirky in the conservative way a lot of albums of this era are. Still, Nilsson draws on rock, jazz, blues and balladry with aplomb, making this a varied listen - and one that doesn't outstay its welcome.

This guy is such an oddball to me for some reason. Is he really an oddball? I don't know. But I love so many of his songs and the fact that he was ever popular seems strange to me. He doesn't seem to fit in a particular genre of music.

First impression: blatant Beatles-esque attempt. HN's real voice is present in Early in the Morning and Coconut Song. I think that "Paul is Dead" might have been when HN left the band as was replaced by is brother PM who share a father? This is pretty good, against my original impression. 4 stars.

Clàssic del soft rock de començaments dels 70, on destaca l'apropiació per sempre del tema de Badfinger 'Without You', però que no acaba aquí.

Jump Into The Fire >> reszta albumu. Mimo to solidny, współcześnie brzmiący, przyjemny album. Miał słabsze momenty, głównie podczas eksperymentów z obco brzmiącymi instrumentami (I'll Never Leave You, patrzę na Ciebie). Gotta Get Up idealna piosenka na budzik, kąśliwy humorek się z niej wylewa i daje się odczuć przez całą resztę albumu.

Not gonna lie - I was afraid to listen to this album based on the title and cover alone, but I didn't make a mistake and played it. It was fun, didn't expect it to be this energetic, felt surprisingly fresh for '71. Interesting arrangements, especially the brass section, combined with tounge-in-cheek lyrics and a pleasant voice made a recipe for a 35 minutes well-spent. Highlights: Gotta Get Up, Coconut

What I expected to be a generic solo album turned to be a humorous exploration of well aranged sounds. The vocals were solid, the tracks were interesting and quite varied and the tracks did not blend together but stood on their own merits. I definitly enjoyed my time here more than I would have expected. Highlights: Walk into the Fire, Without You

With Harry Nilsson looking mellow in a dressing robe, there's clue on the cover that this going to be a laid back idiosyncratic stoner record. For me Nilsson is a bit underrated as an artist and a singer. He wrote some decent songs and I absolutely love his voice. He had such a large vocal range (as on the Grammy winning 'Without You') and could cover pretty much anything and make it his own (as on 'Let The Good Times Roll'). I love the stoned playfulness of tracks he did write, like 'Coconut' and 'Gotta Get Up'. Not my favourite Nilsson album (that would be Ariel Ballet), but to it is a very good one.

El nombre y la portada me predispusieron un poco y pensé que lo iba a odiar. Y resulta que este disco es el que tiene la versión más famosa (pre Mariah Carey) de Ken Lee. Y resulta que este fulano era chile de Lennon y es con quien tuvo su "Lost Weekend" y hasta hicieron un disco juntos, y hasta le decían "The American Beatle". Y Coconut que es básicamente una broma, tiene covers hasta de McCartney. En fin, me sorprendió positivamente y si hubiera medias estrellas le daría media más.

First song is like, 70s Tom Goes. His take on "Get Ready". Joking aside, this is pretty easily listening, just throw it on in the background and it'll be fine. Very Radio friendly. Beyond that, doesn't do much for me. I can tell he's got some talent, but not exactly my cup of tea. I wouldn't reach for the radio dial to turn it to something else though. Oh and I have heard "Without You". Very Beatles-esque. I like the harmonies, actually. This one might be my fav on the album, but it's a bit cheesy, but it's earnest so I can't fault it. This was prob the movie/breakup song of the year. Oh god I have heard "Coconut". Not a fan. I remember Coke used it for their Coke with Lime (Put the lime in the coke, you nut). Pretty good ad, actually. It's on YT. "Jump in the Sea" instrumentation is pretty good actually, thought it was a different band that came up through Spotify. The lyrics/vocals bring it down for me though. Really hard to rate, but 2.5 rounded up to 3 for me.

I’ve seen this album cover dozens of times over the years while flipping through the used bins. After a listen, I don’t really regret passing it up. It starts off nicely with the Beatlesque track “Gotta Get Up” then the swing-and-a-miss attempt at the blues with “Driving Along”. I was off put by the horns on “Down”, but I’ve never been much of a fan of brass (saxophone excepted of course!). Then the big hit “Without You” played, and I thought ‘oh, that’s who sings this...”. The rest of the album fairly inoffensive, and I liked the bass and drums on “Jump Into the Fire”. Covers of “Cocunut” and “Let the Good Times Roll” made me think the songwriting well for this album was pretty shallow. This is a 2.5, and I’m struggling to round up. Did it anyway.

Not a bad listen. I feel like he’s got a similar style to Randy Newman but for some reason I find it hard to rate him as highly. The back half was better and I should come back to “Let the Good Times Roll” and “Jump Into the Fire”.

Aika monipuolinen levy, oli vähän jatsahtavaa menoa (mm. pitkä rumpusoolo!), soul/blues-henkisiä biisejä ja sitten muuta kevyempää pop-rockia ja sitten Reservoir dogsin soundtrackilta tuttu kummajainen - Coconut. Levyn loppua kohden tunnelma vähän laimeni, joten ei ihan neloseen saakka yllä.

Album had me chuckling with just the name since could be Wilson Schmilsson. What a friggin’ fun, light, upbeat, boppy album with a scattering of deeper, perspective lyrics (you can see all the people who seem to have nothing to say to each other, each day they grow farther and farther from each other…faces so tired of facing each other). Immediately hooked from track #1 Gotta Get Up, grabbed by the lyrics of Driving Along, enthralled by the simple 5 note beat of Early in the Morning and who TF doesn’t love the Coconut song?!? Probably my Trek America passengers that I played it for at least once a day on our 6 week trip😊. Could do without The Moonbeam Song even though some interesting lyrics spattered throughout. Nice soulful tune with some solid horns in Down. Always thought Without You was sung by a woman albeit with a deep voice. Or maybe I just thought a man joined in on the chorus. A good song but I’m way over love songs. Didn’t know he had the more known version of Let The Good Times Roll; enjoyable enough. Nice bass on Jump Into The Fire, a good rockin’ tune. Ending on I’ll Never Leave You a little drag but interesting musical melody that some sections had me thinking of Dance with the Sugar Plum Fairy. Again, would have given 3 and a half stars but the repetitiveness and the few love songs definitely don’t constitute a 4 star rating. But album was definitely added to my library and glad I was exposed to it. And now all I can do is picture myself on my motorcycle driving along at 57,000 MPH, now that’s fast!

Maybe.

As a first for this listener, the album title started off this whole experience from a bias towards mockery. Starting off, the songs were token 70s, a sense of fun and lack of seriousness --- a remarkable contrast to the culture of America at this stage of Vietnam. We work our way through lesser known songs we finally come across "Without You" and "Coconut" arguably two of the more popular songs engrained within the lexicon of pop culture notoriety yet almost completely detached from Harry Nilsson himself.

I know 4/5 songs on this album and they are all decentish. (\"Without You\" does grind my gears though)Trouble is when you put them altogether on an album it all sounds a bit eclectic with no real flow. A real mish mash. Don't know what else to say. Nilsson had a longish career and this was by far his biggest album. He loved a beer or 7 with his pals Ringo and Moon...died in his 50s of a heart attack. Also rock stars died in his London flat. Another dull 3.

p251. 1971. 3 stars I feel like I should like this more than I do but... meh. Don't get me wrong, lyrically it's sharp, he had a cracking voice and it has its tunes, but I think it says a lot when the biggest track on it was written by someone else. And it has an utterly redundant cover of Let The Good Times Roll. When it's good, its very good, but there is a lot of filler that hasn't aged well. It feels and sounds like a hipster Billy Joel.

A good soft rock album with a unique and inexplicable touch that makes it a bit outcast. "Jump Into The Fire" is an insanely great track that I knew before (thanks to the superb Heather Trost cover of that song). However, I don't feel bounded to this record and I don't think I'll listen again.

Biiseistä mieleen jäi ainoastaan Mariah Careyn hitti Without You, joka ilmeisesti ei ollut alunperin myöskään Nilssonin biisi. Myös ärsyttävä limekookosrallattelu jäi mieleen kun sitä oli minulle etukäteen mainostettu. Ei häiritsevää, ei mieleenpainuvaa.

Radio random cantado por el mismo sujeto! Creo que las canciones son buenas y aunque pueden variar mucho en el género musical, el problema real es que no se nota un sello propio. Me parece muy interesante que un artista brinque tanto de géneros en un sólo disco, sin embargo no termina de fraguar su propio estilo. No creo que llegue al extremo de "por tratar de hacer todo terminó haciendo nada" pero sí me parece que tanta revoltura termina por opacar su talento. 2.5 estrellas que bajan a 2 por el simple hecho de que no pienso volver a escuchar el disco completo. Justo al terminar esta opinión encontré la idea que me provocó este disco: innecesario. Sabes hacer canciones de los 50s, 60s, 70s? No hay necesidad de juntarlas todas en un mismo disco. Puedes escribir una buena canción de rock como Jump into the fire? Vamos a ponerle 2 minutos de percusiones. Tu disco es muy variado? Vamos a ponerle una canción sin sentido como Coconut. Creo que esa exageración de formas y géneros e ideas termina por cansar. Tracks: Down, Let the good times roll, Jump into the fire.

2.5 Tiene puntos interesantes. Las primeras dos canciones son buenas, Without You es (a pesar de lo echada a perder que la tengo en la cabeza por culpa de Ken Lee) una versión mucho mejor que la original y una gran canción despechosa. Tiene una voz interesante y que puede sonar muy distinta de una canción a otra. Por otro lado el disco se siente sin pies ni cabeza, los covers unos bien pero por ejemplo Let the Good Times Roll muy por debajo de la original de los 50s. Las canciones no fluyen y no se siente cohesión, empieza con una canción que casi parece plagio de Paul McCartney, pasa por un órgano sintetizador suave y casi silbado, una canción que parece infantil y termina en una medio balada totalmente x. Leí un poco de él y creo que a final de cuentas lo respeto mucho, se ve que talento tenía pero simplemente nunca se tomó en serio su carrera y no se dio ínfulas de nada en la vida. Por ahí vi que hay un documental sobre su vida intentaré verlo, creo puede ser más interesante incluso que su música. Tarantino lo supo desde hace años... la mejor canción era la del limon en el coco.

Had some redeeming qualities, but it’s really just 35 minutes of pure cheese, 4/10

Beatles-vibes. für mich bissi fad. Werde es mir vermutlich nicht nochmal anhören. Wusste nicht dass Ken-Lee eine Cover-Version ist, finde die Harry Nilsson Version viel schöner als die von Mariah. Die spanische brauch ich aber nicht..

Coconut was lit, Gotta Get Up was very Russian Doll. 5.5/10 overall.

I liked (and knew) Without you and coconut. The rest of the songs sound uninteresting and tiring. Kept zoning out and having it as background noise, even if I was actively trying to listen to it.

Tuntuu kamalan vanhalta olo kun noi Gotta Get Upin sanat nappaa näin. Early in the morning kans hauska neppailu. Muuten aika meh, ja Coconut on niin ärsyttävä renkutus (ihan sama onko tahallaan)‚ että sakotan yhden tähden. 2/5

Hmm, kivaa sinänsä, mutta ei lopulta oikein lähtenyt. Ehkä jotenkin kornia. Eikä juuri auttanut, että iskevimmät biisit, eli Without You ja Coconut ovat aika memeettisiä ja vähän kuluneita.

70s schmaltz, but some good signing and a few good grooves. Had only ever heard the coconut song before, which is not representative. I think this music would have been long forgotten without the novelty factor. Dude strikes me as the Ed Sheeran of the 70s.

Rating: 2/5 Playlist track: Without You Date listened: 11/04/22 Harry Nilsson seems to have forged a career out of novelty songs and popularising covers of recent minor hits by other artists. 'Nilsson Schmilsson' indeed.

Another irrelevant album (and a bit cringe with that coconut song) that is here due a single song. This time it ain’t even the original one (this is the second time I encounter such situation during this list). Well, without you is a good song then.

Strange liked the first song the rest was a bit like weird pop. Was ok but never really got there again.

You put the peeps in the chili pot and eat them both up, you put the peeps in the chili pot and add the m&ms. You put the peeps in the chili pot and make it taste... bad.
