I have to admit that I was somewhat disappointed with this album. Several places "Triangle" has been referred to as a classic album and as the best album by the band. It does feature several fine strings-arrangements by Van Dyke Park, but the overall lack of real good songs, makes the album a pretty dull experience.
Actually the first song that really stirred my attention was Randy Newman's "My Old Kentucky Home" and by the end of that song, the album was over. A few more songs like "Magic Hollow" and and the title track lift themselves above average, but not enough to make the album really interesting.
