Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Emotions was the third Pretty Things album, and it was radically different from the previous two, which were more or less typical British rhythm`n blues albums. On the second album "Get The Picture" they had already shown that they were very skilled songwriters, but with "Emotions" their musical ambitions led them into experiments with orchestral arrangements - or was it the record company that wanted to change their image? The album has often been criticized for being ruined by these Reg Tilsley strings and brass arrangements.

I agree that on some tracks these "outside" instruments do remove focus from the band and their music, but actually I think the album has aged very well. This is also due to some fine songwriting and great vocals from Phil May.

"Death of a Socialite" is a strong opener, great tune and vocals, and apart from the ending I think the arrangements works fine!

The single "Children" is a great catchy psychedelic-type song, practically... Read more
Although almost universally slammed as one of their weakest albums, I liked The Pretty Things' "Emotions" from the first moment I bought it on used vinyl. Maybe it's my weakness for transitional Britpop albums from the 66-67 period, where groups began to trade in their rawer mod outlook for something altogether more sophisticated and experimental--where remnants of the old aggressive sound mingled with tentative attempts at psychedelia, literary pop and everything in-between, without yet embracing the full-blown psych of the post "Pepper"/"Piper" era. To be sure, The Pretties' album was one of the weaker efforts from this fascinating period: surrounded by conceptual masterpieces like "Aftermath", "Revolver", "Face To Face", "Sunshine Superman", "A Quick One", "Between The Buttons" and "Roger The Engineer", it reveals what can go wrong with these kinds of transitional...

Originally released in 1967, this was Pretty Thing's third effort from what I could tell. Not as good as their other earlier titles like 'Get The Picture', 'S.F. Sorrow' or 'Parachute' but it's still decent. Main reason this lp is considered a failure is that most of the song arrangements are simply too elaborate {at least, for what they're doing}. Tunes I thought made this CD somewhat of a keeper are "Children", the snazzy "There Will Never Be Another Day", the hip "Out In The Night", both versions of "Photographer", the so-so "Bright Lights Of The City", the happening "Tripping" and the stellar "My Time" {possibly the best track of the entire CD}. Honestly, this disc should grow on you. Plus, you get seven bonus cuts. Maybe a bit more R&B that I expected, but 'Emotions' has maybe three bad songs in it's entirety. The bonus tracks help. Check it out.
