The Hollies: Moving Finger [Epic, 1970]
Suddenly, for no discernible reason, the Hollies seem to be aiming their schlock at the housewife market. The nadir, an attempted artsong called "Marigold Gloria Swansong," is as aimless as bad (i.e. current) Bee Gees; usually they come on like the Sonny and Cher of slick harmony. The music hasn't lost its iridescence, but though they do generate one great soap opera--"Too Young to Be Married"--most of this is too crass for giggles.
