Editorial Reviews

CSN's 1977 album is a milestone in music. CSN was the last recording on which the three principals handled all the vocal parts. "Just a Song Before I Go" was the latest Graham Nash's radio-friendly, acoustic masterpiece and a top ten single. "See The Changes", "Fair Game" and "Dark Star" ranked with the best of Stephen Still's compositions, while David Crosby contributes three distinctive classics "Shadow Captain", "Anything At All" and "In My Dreams". Nash's multi-part "Cathedral" is still a staple of the group's live performances. This is a classic in every sense.

Arguably their best album.
Randy Remote
Darkstar is great and so is just a song before I go... The lesson to be learned here is BUY THE ALBUM!

The harmonies here are delicately arranged and extremely well performed (and produced).

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that 1977's _CSN_ represents the best work Crosby, Stills, and Nash have ever done together.

I don't mean to take anything away from their earlier albums. Their debut LP was deservedly a landmark in modern music history, and _Deja Vu_ -- with Neil Young in on the act -- was _another_ landmark. You have to go some way to beat _two_ landmarks.

But I think CSN do so on this deceptively laid-back album. They've always described their work as being about the changes that they (and other people) go through, and every song here is a little gem about exactly that. (Including Nash's brooding "Cathedral," which, one assumes, is about his own rejection of historical Christianity.)

In only one or two other album reviews have I been able to say, about the work under review, that there are _no_ weak tracks. This is another. _CSN_ is the only album by any of these guys, alone or in combination, that I can listen through without ever skipping _any_ songs. (Actually I can't say that about too many albums by anyone at all.) But just the other day I listened through this one _twice_.

This is one of the very few times that CSN have actually managed to be more than the separate sum of their parts. Stills is at his best here; he contributes five tunes, all winners, with "See The Changes" at the top of my own list for his best lyrics ever. Nash writes four, all of them gentle without being either sappy or mournful. Crosby writes two and a half (the brilliant "Shadow Captain" is a joint effort with keyboardist Craig Doerge), and "In My Dreams" is one of my longtime favorites of his.

Some people prefer the youthful flash of this trio's first album, some the rocknroll flash of the first one where "Y" was part of the mix, but I've always found CSN to be the most satisfying of Crosby, Stills and Nash' efforts in that particular formation. The main reason is that it sounds like three ADULTS really giving their all together; in the songwriting, in the harmonies, in every respect. Particular high points are Still's "See The Changes," a sort-of cousin musically to his earlier "Helplessly Hoping," but whose world-weary lyrics are some of the most penetrating the man ever wrote; Nash's "Cold Rain," about returning to where you originally came from and remembering why you left in the first place, with some wonderful close harmonies; Nash again with "Cathedral," a dramatic high point in the group's arrangements; and Crosby's "Shadow Captain," as potently evocative of sailing on the open seas as a song can get. This album doesn't have the "gosh-wow" factor of CSN's 1969 debut, but it's just as rewarding an album---maybe more.

CSN's 1977 album is a classic. Harmony vocals may be out of fashion these days, but if you don't know this record, man you had better catch up. Both intimate and powerful, sad and hopeful, this record has no flaws. If you want to escape from a world that is moving faster by the minute, this record is sure to help. Some of the very best of Crosby Stills and Nash is here on one CD. Get it.

This is a classic album musically speaking, most rock music fans will already own a copy. The 1994 Atlantic label remaster was excellent for it's day, however the 2013 Audio Fidelity gold CD betters the Atlantic sonically in every way and is well worth the outlay for those with better sounding systems, or anyone who still has the original (mediocre) 1980s CD release.

Many of today's pop artists release albums that have one or two "surefire hits" (i.e., the songs sound just like all the other tunes on the radio), while the rest of the tracks can most charitably be described as "filler" (same stuff school cafeterias use in "mystery meatloaf"). There isn't any "filler" on "CSN"; every song here is exquisitely crafted to showcase the vocal harmonies that have made Crosby, Stills, and Nash a perennial favorite. The most popular song on the album is the rather lightweight "Just A Song Before I Go", but what really distinguishes this album from many of its late-1970s contemporaries is that all of the songs are heartfelt meditations on love. On songs such as "See the Changes" and "Dark Star", these mature pop artists write about real relationships, not about adolescent infatuation; they are fighting a battle against the erosion of their love over time. The sequence of the songs is, well, perfect--this is one of the albums in my extensive '70s collection that I do NOT remix, because there is a masterfully-crafted progression of feeling. The metaphor for this album (and one intended by CSN themselves) is that of a voyage (hence the cover photo of the three guys hanging out on a sailboat at sea): the songs move us through space and time in an almost physical way, building to the only "rock" song on the album, the "pounding piano" crescendo of "I Give You Give Blind".Read more ›

SACD's and Gold audio disks and Mp3s.....??????
I preordered this and also have a decent collection of "AF" Gold CDs and SACDS. If you want to hear detailed quality audio sound then IMO they are worth it. Many of the CDs that are released today are mastered to sound loud which causes a lot of the separation and detailed to be lost.... Read More
