I do agree with the consensus here generally that the album isn't up to par as a whole with their other classic albums - 1973 was a peak for them and they should have been focusing on creating a full, complete album that wasn't just filled with, well, filler. Karen's voice was at a new peak in 1973 and Richard's arrangements were as brilliant as ever and yet we get a half-assed medley and an instrumental. I actually like the golden-brown hued "Heather" but it should never have been on an album when they were still at their peak and Karen's in prime vocal shape. The hit and miss aspect of N&T makes the songs good to hear individually but not together as one unit, which is fine, we would all have liked full length cuts over bits of medley (no matter how breezy they sound. There's an article written about this album particularly (I'll find the link and report back) which went in detail about its cultural significance within early 70s America and how Karen's voice was worthy of discourse within itself. I believe he labeled it "the whitest album ever made" or something like that. I love it for what it is and it singularly encapsulates (more than any other album of theirs) their fascinating yet frustrating image as 70s American kitsch.
