The Association is the group's eponymous fifth studio album (# 32). It is an eclectic LP with songs in many different styles including rock, pop, blue-eyed soul, psychedelic, country and novelty, while still staying in the realm of sunshine rock and sunshine pop. Although generally well received by the critics, it did not spawn any hit singles.

It was the last studio album featuring guitarist Russ Giguere, who left for a solo career in 1971.
