1971 Gatefold Original (KC Prefix First Pressing). Byrdmaniax is often viewed as a low point in The Byrds' discography. However, upon closer inspection, the album showcases the band's continued ability to experiment and push boundaries. The opening track, "Glory, Glory," is a rousing gospel-tinged rocker that sets the tone for the album's diverse range of styles. "Pale Blue" is a haunting ballad that features stunning vocal harmonies, while "I Wanna Grow Up To Be A Politician" is a satirical take on American politics that remains relevant today. The album's standout track, "Kathleen's Song," is a beautiful acoustic ballad that showcases the band's strength in creating heartfelt melodies. Though Byrdmaniax may not have been a commercial success, it remains a testament to The Byrds' musical versatility and willingness to take risks.
