The story of "Time Of The Season" resulted to be like the title of some bad horror movie: the return of the Zombies. This band had had a successful beginning with two of their first three singles being important hits. But then the group released many other refined singles that were unsuccessful despite their good quality. Months and years passed without good news, so the band decided to record a final album and then dissolve the group. The song I'm reviewing came from that album; it was written by Rod Argent and released as a single in March 1968 in UK. However, the single was converted into a great hit one year later, when it was released in US and reached the #3 position. But the Zombies were already disbanded at that point, so they truly were like living deads, honoring their name. Anyway, beyond all these historical facts, the song has become a classic masterpiece. It features a fantastic bass-drums-breath rhythm that is repeated throughout the recording; the lead vocal and harmonies are heaven-like; and there are two superb keyboard solos, in the middle and the end of the track. The lyrics should also be highlighted, as they summarize the summer of love in few words. It's not a surprise that this song has been frequently used as a soundtrack of its time.
