Pour son 12ème album studio, sorti en septembre 1984, on constate que le groupe (en duo depuis le départ de Dan Peek en 1978), a rangé ses guitares acoustiques et a fait appel aux producteurs à la mode de l'époque (Richie Zito, Matthew Mc Cauley, Richard James Burgess).
C'est avec effroi que l'on voit apparaitre des batteries électroniques , des programmateurs et autres synthétiseurs dans l' univers musical de Gerry Beckley et de Dewey Bunnel !!!
J'avais pourtant craint le pire en lisant les notes sur la pochette, en effet, le groupe ayant fait appel à des compositeurs extérieurs, je m'étais dit qu'un tel procédé reflèterait certainement une sérieuse baisse de régime.
Affirmatif !!!
Certes le génie mélodique du duo est toujours présent sur quelques rares chansons comme "Stereo", "Unconditional Love" ou "5 th Avenue", mais pitié, le son des "DMX Drums" est insupportable et les synthés millésimés 100 % eighties me donnent des allergies !
L'album sera un échec cuisant ne montant pas plus haut qu'à la 185 place des Charts US et n'y restant pas plus de 3 semaines.
Capitol Records s'empressera de leur faire enregistrer un disque en public (America In Concert) pour terminer leur contrat et les invitera ensuite à chercher une autre maison de disques...

HASH(0x9a6dca68) étoiles sur 5 Some Perspective on Perspective 17 novembre 2000
Par John Corbett - Publié sur
Format: CD
America first became famous in the early 1970s as a young trio of musicians creating acoustic masterpieces such as "A Horse With No Name," "I Need You" and "Ventura Highway." Their sound matured by the middle of the decade under the tutelage of famed Beatles producer George Martin with pop classics like "Tin Man," "Lonely People" and "Sister Golden Hair." After Dan Peek left in 1977, America hit a dry spell before regaining their commercial footing with their 1982 smash hit "You Can Do Magic" from the View From The Ground album.

America was able to ride the crest of its resurgent popularity for a short while, charting with the hits "Right Before Your Eyes (Rudolph Valentino)" and "The Border" in 1983, the latter from the Your Move album. By 1984, however, band members Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell decided to experiment with the heavily synthesized pop sound then in vogue. From this came Perspective, released on Capitol Records in September 1984.

Perspective was, if nothing else, an ambitious effort. Beckley and Bunnell, as "executive producers," utilized three different producers (Richard James Burgess, Richie Zito, and Matthew McCauley) and a long list of prominent studio musicians to create a sound completely different than anything America had ever tried. Longtime fans were alienated, and the critics, who never took kindly to America to begin with, shunned the album altogether. The album died quietly at number 185 on the Billboard album charts in November 1984, spending a mere three weeks on the chart. This poor performance effectively put an end to America's recording career for the time being. America released one more live album on Capitol in 1985 to close out their contract, and then disappeared from the pop scene. They didn't release any new material until they included four new tracks on Rhino's Encore: More Greatest Hits release in 1991, and did not put out a new studio album until Hourglass, released on American Gramaphone Records in 1994. Not until Here & Now was released on Sony's Burgundy Records label in 2007 did America put out another major-label release.

In hindsight, however, Perspective was not a total failure. It did produce two minor adult contemporary hits. One was "Special Girl," a somewhat brooding pop confection which was later covered by Meatloaf. The other, "Can't Fall Asleep To A Lullaby," was penned by Bunnell along with Journey frontman Steve Perry and Bill Mumy (of "Lost In Space" fame) and Robert Haimer. This wonderfully atmospheric ballad was noteworthy for Perry's backing vocals and a sparkling sax solo by Phil Kenzie, and stands as one of America's finest songs during its Capitol tenure.

The album is full of interesting tracks unlike anything on any other America album. "See How The Love Goes" sounds like a cross between the Pointer Sisters and Flashdance (perhaps that's because the Pointer Sisters had recorded the track in 1982). "5th Avenue" is surprisingly effective with layers of moody synthesizers. "We Got All Night" is perhaps the most straight-out bouncy pop track on the album. "Cinderella" features Eagle Timothy B. Schmit on backing vocals. "Lady With A Bluebird" is an intriguing stab at a reggae sound (America had tried this once before on Hideaway's "Lovely Night"). "Stereo" was co-written between Beckley and famed songwriter/composer Jimmy Webb.

Perhaps because we now know that America would ultimately return to a more organic, acoustic sound, Perspective stands out like an unusual pop experiment of its age. Yet it remains an enjoyable listen on its own merits. Even in reviews that predictably tend to pan the album, like Stephen Thomas Erlewine's review on, the album is described as "endearing." This album is well worth giving a second listen - it's actually pretty good.

HASH(0x9a4e1678) étoiles sur 5 Great Production..good songs..... 15 mai 1999

America derserves enormous credit for trying to make a record that is in vogue for the time in which it was done. The album is like many that came during that name...perhaps "overproduced". The songs are good, however I prefer Gerry and Dewey writing their own they are both excellent songwriters..It's a good album it's just not one of their best..Keep in mind that sometimes the record company dictates direction...not neccesarirly the band....Highlights include "Can't Fall Asleep To A Lullabye" and "We've Got It All Night"... This album is solid proof that Ameirca is a group with staying power that can adapt to the times... even the times aren't neccesarily worth adapting too as in the case with the 80's.

HASH(0x9a4e14a4) étoiles sur 5 I LIKE IT 8 décembre 1998

I do not understand the criticism of this album. Perspective may be a more sophisticated sound for the guys, but its still America. The CD has several excellent songs and the rest are either good or at least fair. With the exception of Alibi, it is their best Album of the 80s. If you like America, you will probably like this one.
HASH(0x9a4e1ac8) étoiles sur 5 Perspective, minus the flavour 18 mars 2013
Par Tnahpellee - Publié sur
Format: CD
Perspective is America's 1984 album. It has a trashed reputation because of it's synth-pop sound, which seems at odds with their folk-rock reputation.

Essentially, this isn't a bad album. Actually, despite first impressions, I don't think the synths are the problem. Dewey Bunnell fares better than Gerry Beckley, because Bunnell has a 'bigger' voice and is better able to sing over the top of the keyboard arrangements. But for me the synths aren't the problem.

I find that America have changed their 'persona', their trying to fit into the mould of the contemporary personality and have left themselves behind.

Bunnell's "Can't fall asleep to a lullabye" and the haunting "Falling off the world" are classic America, and true to who they are. The rest feels like an attempt to fit in with Spandeau Ballet, OMD and whoever else was lighting up the charts at the time. It doesn't 'feel' like America. "Stereo" and "The Avenue" are probably the picks of Beckely's songs.

The worst song is "Lady with a bluebird"; outside of "Woman Tonight" and "Lovely Night" (I know that latter one's not so popular, but I like it), the Bunnell/Beckley team and Reggae don't mix. It fails but it's not such a bad album.

HASH(0x9a4e1af8) étoiles sur 5 Their weakest effort. 21 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: CD
Overall I would have to say this was probably America's weakest studio album. They abandon their trademark accoustic sound in favor of an 80's techno-pop sound. Gerry Beckley's songs are good, but it doesn't work with Dewey Bunnell's style. The album produced two minor hits in 1984: Special Girl and Can't Fall Asleep To A Lullabye. Best tracks are Stereo, Cinderella, and 5th Avenue. Only recommended for serious America fans.
