TJR says

Third album from the 23-year-old New York based pop-rocker, largely recorded in L.A., and the first to use his own name following two with the Runt moniker. A talented all-rounder, he wrote, played, sang, engineered, and produced everything on three of the four sides of the double album. It proved to be his biggest hit album (#29) and also housed his two biggest hit singles; “I Saw The Light” (#16) and “Hello It's Me” (#5, a remake of his own 1968 song done with Nazz). His brand of experimental pop (vaguely some kinda one-man-Sgt-Pepper) bores me senseless, although it's to his credit that he doesn't take it all too seriously, allowing mistakes to be heard, and interjecting with some chatty interludes.
