REVIEWS
Average points: 3.82 (Reviews: 49)
****
7ter Hit in Holland (von 29 !!) in Februar 1967 (8 Wochen - Rang 15).
****
Nearer, nearer by changing horses,
still so far away ...'

'On a carousel' was an average Hollies song, that became less average thanks to their strong vocal harmonies.

*****
Sehr sympathischer Song mit echter Atmosphäre. # 4 in GB und # 11 in den USA im Frühling 1967.
***
...weniger...
*****
auch ein grooviger titel
****
Bin noch kein Fan der Band oder dergleichen . Netter 60s-Sound, etwas typisch für die Zeit. Sicher ausbaufähig. ;)
***
Hab's seit Ewigkeiten wieder mal gehört; Gefällt mir nicht.
******
Guter Song
***
Das Lied ist irgendwie ungeordnet. Aus der ausbaufähigen Melodie wurde eindeutig zu wenig gemacht. Spärlicher und schlechter Instrumenteneinsatz. Unharmonischer Gesang (Geschrei? Gejaule?). Der Sänger erweckt den Eindruck, dass er entweder mit Halsschmerzen gesungen hat oder eben einfach nicht singen kann.
***
Abgerundet. Hört sich an wie ein Demoband... Schade, keine gute Produktion. Grundsätzlich m.E. kein 3+-Kandidat, aber es gibt halt deutlich hörbare Harmoniekanten im Gesang, direkt vor dem Refrain.
****
...gut...
****
Auch dieser Song ist ein Werk der verpassten Möglichkeiten... Mehr als 4 Sterne kann man dafür eigentlich nicht geben.
*****
Geht so

ich runde mal auf

Unterbewertet!! Ein genialer Song der Hollies. Kann man immer wieder hören!
***
Nach dem grossen Erfolg von "Stop!Stop!Stop!" war auch dieser Nachzieher eine Eigenkomposition der Gruppe. Leider ist das Ergebnis mit dem luschigen Refrain nur Durchschnitt!
***
Naja
***
▓ Matige plaat van "The Hollies" uit februari 1967 (Holland) !!! Deed het echter niet slecht in de Hollandse hitlijsten van maart & april 1967 !!! Persoonlijk vind ik 3 sterren meer dan genoeg !!! (NL Top 40: 8 wk / # 15) !!!
***
Naja...Da haben sie aber mehr drauf...3.5-
***
Eigentlich ziemlich grässlich und für die Ohren grausam...
**
Ich find' zum Garouseln!
***
klingt eher wie eine B-Seite
******
hervorragend
*****
OK.
***
Weiss Gott nicht gerade überragend, vor allem der Refrain
ist schon ziemlich gewöhnungsbedürftig....

3 +
Last edited: 18.03.2010 19:29

Dem stimme ich zu...
***
ausser dem Refrain ist das hier so ziemlich nichts - knappe 3*...eine Karussell-Fahrt empfinde ich jedenfalls spannender als diesen Song...
Last edited: 21.06.2011 22:59
***
ist mir eine Spur zu altbacken
*****
Netter, sympathischer Sixties-Pop.
*****
die guten Hollies in ihren "frühen" Tagen..........
****
... angenehmer Song im Stile der British Invasion ...
***
Von ihren vielen Singles mit Sicherheit eine ihrer schlechtesten..
******
... eine der Besten !!!
***

...gut...
****
sehr eingängiger Song, bei dem ich mir kurz überlegt hab, ob ich hier nicht doch 5 Punkte geben soll, hab' mich dann aber dagegen entschieden - 4.5*
****
Für eine glatte 4 reicht es.
*****
Good
Last edited: 30.11.2013 22:11

ich mag diesen Sound
***
Das können die Hollies aber besser. Eine Reihe hörbarer Fehler lassen eine sehr nachlässige Produktion vermuten.
***
...bei diesen Klängen wird mir schwindelig, ohne auf dem Karussell zu sitzen...
*****
Toller Ohrwurm, seltsam, dass der hier so schlecht bewertet ist.
*
Cette chanson est horrible, elle renferme tous les stéréotypes d'une chanson des années 60.
***
Tja, die Fremdkompositionen bringen sie einfach stärker. Grahan Nash's Songs sind eben doch meist peinlich.
****
doch ganz gefällig
*****
Wird mich immer an den Englisch-LK in der 12 erinnern, in dem wir den Film "East Is East" besprochen haben, wo dieses Lied vorkam. Schöner Beat-Sound.
***
Da hat die Band bessere Songs.
***

Gefällt mir nicht so wirklich.
****
nett, ist o.k.
*****
knappe 5*
