TJR says

The strength of The Byrds endures onto album # 4, which positively fizzes in comparison to the relatively lacklustre “Fifth Dimension” which preceded it. The most varied set yet, “Younger Than Yesterday” seems to balance out the pop, the psychedelic, the folk and even introduces a little country into the mix. Bassist Chris Hillman steps up as a new key songwriter contributing to 5 of the tracks, mostly with a pop sensibility, but most strikingly on the rather marvellous “Thoughts And Words” which revels in the fashionable sitar-like sound of backwards guitar effects. It’s where it’s at for counterculture 1967 style…
