AllMusic Review by

Twenty-six years after their debut album, America's HUMAN NATURE proves that their formula--boyish harmonies with a debt to Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, lots of acoustic guitars, vaguely cosmic lyrics--still works. Nothing here is as instantly memorable as their early hits, but the songs are uniformly well-crafted and hook-laden, in particular the highly atmospheric "From a Moving Train," and the jangly "Wednesday Morning."

There's next to no tinkering with the basic America sound here. In fact, unless you listen extremely hard, these could easily be outtakes from the '70s (the modern drum sound is the only giveaway).
