The music is like a mix of folk, and blues. It's very different yet has a similar sound to other things. The singer's voice actually sounds very country. The songs have interesting titles that keep you interested to like 'The Dolphins'. I imagine he was definitely in the hippy phase.
I would say the only problem is that a lot of the songs sounded the same to me. I probably couldn't tell you the different songs if you asked because I couldn't tell them a part real well though I'm sure a true fan could.
I won't be listening to Fred Neil again after this, but he was enjoyable from the stuff I had been listening to. I did find it interesting that Elvis, and The Smiths were recommend listening after listening to him. I wouldn't have even thought to listen to either of them after Neil.
