Hat Trick is the third original studio album by Americanfolk rock trio America, released by Warner Bros. Records in 1973. It was a modest hit in the US, peaking at #28 on the Billboard album chart, although it failed to go gold, whereas the group's first two releases had platinum sales. The album produced one minor hit single, "Muskrat Love" which reached #67 on the Billboard singles chart and #11 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The title track is the only song written by all three members of America.
In his Allmusic review music critic Mike DeGagne wrote that the album faltered "mainly because the songs lacked the cordial folk-rock melodies and mindful songwriting that prevailed on the earlier releases. "She's Gonna Let You Down" and "Rainbow Song" are the album's best cuts, but banal offerings such as "Green Monkey," "Willow Tree Lullaby," and "Molten Love" have Bunnell and Peek straying off course, sounding stale and musically feeble."
