It is commonly said that CSNY came together for this CD for all the wrong reasons. Even the individual members of the band confess that AMERICAN DREAM was not the album they should have made. Young is quoted as saying that he promised to return to the band for an album if David Crosby kicked his crack habit. Well, as luck would have it, Crosby got himself arrested one time too many and into the Big Clink he went. Soon Crosby found himself in with a better class of people and walked out of the jail months later clean and sober. Much to Young's chagrin his pledge came back to haunt him and so rather than take back his promise into the studio he went. The resulting album then got some equivalent of a "Dog of the Year" award from Rolling Stone magazine-that being the kindest praise it received.

I take a different point of view. One of the virtue of CD-players is you can "program out" certain selections. It is surprising how "good" albums become "excellent" albums when particular debris is given a "rest".

I hate to say this because I like the guy. I've seen him in dozens of television interviews and listened to him many times in radio interviews speak extensively about music and many other subjects. He is very articulate and intelligent and I would love to drink a few beers with him and shoot the breeze. He probably knows more and remembers much more of the truth behind the great events in Rock history than most who were there or claimed to be there. Nevertheless, I find that there is nothing wrong with AMERICAN DREAM if you program out Graham Nash's songs.

Somewhere along the line, Nash became convinced that he had emerged as the creative force in CSN.

Don't let the naysayers convince you that this album is bad. On the contrary, this album from 1988 is one of the best CSNY has ever produced & as long as you aren't biased against the band's more modern pop/rock sound that they took on, you are in for a real treat. It is chock full of catchy melodic songs & has a few pleasant surprises. Neil Young starts things off with a great folk rocker, "American Dream" & contributes many more great folk/rock songs throughout the album. My favorite being "Feel Your Love" which is a catchy & upbeat mid-tempo love song. David Crosby's "Compass" is a haunting & teriffic acoustic ballad & is right up there with the groups best work. Then Crosby does a total 180 & rocks out with "Nighttime for the Generals". Probably the hardest rocking & coolest song the group has ever done. It explodes with grinding guitars, thumping bass & heavy drums and it's subject matter was never more relevant than it is today. Both of these tracks should've been singles. The one song that was released as a single, & is also my fav track on the album, is the incredibly catchy "Got It Made" which was sung to perfection by Stephen Stills. He also does another catchy mid-tempo love song called "That Girl" which has really nice harmony vocals & a harder rocking song called "Drivin thunder" which isn't bad. Last but not least, Graham Nash takes on the songs about the more serious issues. Sometimes Graham takes alot of flack for being too political or preachy but I for one don't mind. Everything he sings about on this album should be important to anyone with a conscience.Read more ›

I have read some bad comments about this album, but I like it. It does have some problems, especially Nash's songs except "Clear Blue Skies", and some of Still's stuff, like "That Girl" and "Nightsong." The best stuff though is by far Crosby and Young's songs. "American Dream" is a great tune as is "This Old House" and "Feel Your Love," the latter being one of my favorite Young songs with CS&N. Crosby with his only two songs has a great rocker with "Nighttime For the Generals" and "Compass," quite possibly his best song after his imprisonment. Anyway, it is a good album, not their best but still good, and I would buy it. Let us now look forward to their new album coming out later this year.

My first reaction; What is this? This one gets better each time I listen to it. With Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young adding to the mix there is something for everyone to love and to complain about. (I could do without Drivin' Thunder); but someone else might really get into it. With programable CD players, edit out the 2 - 4 songs you don't like, then you have another CSN&Y classic. But don't start editing until you listen more than once.

American Dream is my favorite CSNY album; actually, it's my favorite CSN album as well. That notwithstanding, Neil Young is a major reason for this album's beauty and staying-power. After spending most of the '80s making worthless trash, Young returned to song-writing form here and then made a solo comeback with Freedom the following year.

This album could have been done by Stills, Nash & Young (and guest-featuring David Crosby). Crosby doesn't do much at all on this album besides contributing two tracks, the introspective gentle acoustic "Compass" and the anti-military rant "Nighttime for the Generals." Maybe Crosby was recovering from one of his legendary drug binges.

Most of the material was written and played by Stills, Nash and Young. Graham Nash wrote most of the political material on this album: "Shadowland," which continues the theme of "Nighttime for the Generals," the environmentalist plea "Clear Blue Skies" and the naively hopeful "Soldiers of Peace." The problem with "can't we all just get along" songs like this is that there are no people with similar views in the Islamofascist world, or if there are, their voices are quickly stilled by state repression and drowned out in the cacophony of America-hatred. Nash is a sentimental hippie, but he does have a lovely voice and he can write simple love songs as well - "Don't Say Goodbye."

Stephen Stills has a powerful rock voice and shines on his tracks, "Got it Made," Drivin' Thunder," "That Girl" and "Night Song" (three of which were co-written by Young). But the real musical beauty of this album comes from the songs performed by Neil Young.
