Sealed 1975 Original. Small Saw Cut. β€œThe Higher They Climb The Harder They Fall, A Smirking David Cassidy Titled His First Post-Teen-Bait Solo Album. And, With Those Words Of Wisdom, He Fell Flat On His Face. It Was The Classic Teen-Dream Dilemma, A Competent Musician/Songwriter Flying To Fame In Someone Else's Jet Plane, Then Wrestling Control For Themselves In Mid-Air. He Had, After All, Already Proved His Credentials Across A String Of Well-Mannered Albums; Had Shown That Keith Partridge Was A Far Cry From His Own Truth; Had, In Fact, Won Every Award Aside From The Ones That He Wanted The Most β€” The Acclaim Of His Peers As A Real-Life Rocker And The Support Of The Critics As A Man Of His Own. The Higher They Climb, Co-Produced By Bruce Johnston And Awash With That Man's Own Beach-Buoyant Debris, Appeared In 1975 To Instant Success In Britain And Europe. Johnston's "I Write The Songs" Gave Cassidy A U.K. Number One; Remixed From The Album Version, Brian Wilson/Mike Love's "Darlin'" Was A Top 20 Follow-Up. And The Overall Theme Of What Was, Of Course, A Rags-To-Riches In Full-Throttle-Reverse Concept Album, Was Certainly An Adventurous Theme, The Monkees' Head For The Next Generation Of Disaffected Youth. In Truth, Things Can Veer A Little Too Close To Hip Easy Listening In Places ("I Write The Songs," Of Course, Will Never Escape The Impression Of Barry Manilow), But Even There, They Showcase Cassidy's Remarkable Voice. Indeed, The Pervading Mood Of The Entire Album Is Of A Performer Who Knew Precisely What He Was Doing And Remained In Control All The Way. Maybe It Is True That The Higher They Climb, The Harder They Fall. But Cassidy Seemed To Be Relishing Every Minute Of That Precipitous Descent.” – Dave Thompson, All Music Guide
