Magic Christian Music

Since their breakthrough hit "Come and Get It" was written by Paul McCartney, Badfinger was dogged by comparisons to the Beatles, but they were hardly copyists. Elements of the Hollies,the Kinks, and very mild psychedelia are discernable throughout the album, all part of the band's search for their own voice. It's a great collection of dreamy post-psych pop tunes driven by strong hooks and harmonies.
