Album Ratings/Reviews
Duit on Mon Dei
(3.0 / 4.0)
David Allen Jones
(3.0 / 4.0)
The first Nilsson LP in 3 years to feature all originals, it also began his infatuation with tropical-style steel drum accompaniment and a de-emphasisation of the Richard Perry-ish slick commercial pop song sound. While not as strong cut by cut as Son of Schmilsson, Pussy Cats, or Sandman, this is still full of wit, whimsy, sweetness and vulgarity, often in the same song! Highlights include the humorous "It's A Jungle Out There", the lovely "Turn Out The Lights", and the equally lovely and very whimsical "Puget Sound".
Tony Muscarella

Wildly uneven, it's still an essential addition to any serious Nilsson collection. The album takes a few listens to appreciate, mainly due to the calypso type instrumentation used in this somewhat overproduced album. "Jesus Christ You're Tall" starts the album hilariously, and the rest of Side One continues the humor, with differing degrees of success.

This album has excellent songs ("Puget Sound", "Turn Out The Lights"), pretty good songs ("It's A Jungle Out There", "Down By the Sea"), and a couple of songs that make me wonder what the hell Harry was thinking when he decided to record them ("What's Your Sign" and "Easier For Me"), both sounding more mean than funny). But, hey, isn't humor subjective?

My favorite Harry album. Many - "religion & the cosmos" songs. How can a man make these subjects seem light and humorous without diminishing the seriousness of those subjects? That's the magic of Harry. It seemed He knew the end was in sight for him.
