The last few CSN/CSNY projects have seemed enervated and oddly plastic, but "Crosby/Nash" charges into new musical territory while retaining the smart soul-searching lyrics, melodic exploration, and exquisite harmonies that made these guys so beloved in the first place. Some of the credit for the freshness of this album belongs to the band, which includes Crosby's astonishingly talented son James Raymond on keyboards, the very fine young guitar player Jeff Pevar (respectively, the R and P of Crosby's underrated band CPR), and under-the-radar guitar genius Dean Parks, who provided the witty, stinging guitar lines on Steely Dan classics like "Haitian Divorce." The presence of drummer Russ Kunkel and bass player Lee Sklar -- the celebrated rhythm section on dozens of albums by the likes of James Taylor and Jackson Browne -- reaffirms a continuity with the duo's earlier work, but even Kunkel and Sklar sound reinvigorated here.Read more ›
CROSBY & NASH is the best thing either of those gentlemen has yet produced, separately or in any combination. I speak as an expert on their work and a wannabe musician.
It is impeccable. They've never been in better voice. And James Raymond's songwriting gift and voice are stunning, even in this context. In some places the album had me doing an unconscious Ray Charles imitation: hugging myself, rocking back and forth, eyes shut, grinning like a fool--in other places it produced effects similar to deep meditation--and in others it evoked grief insupportable. It left me with the overall sense that America is still well worth saving, and that we CAN still take it back if we have the heart and guts to try. It ends, magnificently, brilliantly, with the quietest, gentlest, most wistful, poignant, yearning arrangement you've ever heard (by Michael Hedges), just one acoustic guitar and two heartbroken voices, of "My Country T'is Of Thee."
Three days ago, as I write this, this album was of tremendous personal help to me, in a time of great trial. Seriously.
At 2 AM, I experienced in my right eye symptoms I've had before, in the other eye. Small transient flashes of white light, flickering just at the edge of vision, for half an hour...followed by a blizzard of small sharp dark black dots, swarming in all directions like gnats. When that happens it means that a tear has occurred in your retina, and if you do not IMMEDIATELY have laser surgery, the retina will detach, leaving you blind in that eye.Read more ›

I enjoy this album more than many of theirs. The voices are soothing, the harmonies as good or better than usual, and the songs are both soothing and involving. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Paul S
These two have been at it since the mid-1960's and know how to do it. "Lay Me Down" is one of the most beautiful songs you will ever hear. Read morePublished on October 22, 2013 by Robert Rollins
