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.

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.

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.

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.

About 3 or so months ago I asked a good friend of mine any recommendations he had for me before I was heading to the used CD store. He simply said, "If they have Crosby, Stills and Nash - CSN, get it immediately." Well the store didn't have it, but he was so adamant about the recommendation, I went to Best Buy and bought it new anyway.

And for the last 3 months, this has rarely, and I mean VERY rarely left my CD player. I've seen CSNY live, heard many of their other efforts, and while they are all outstanding, none of it is on the same level as this work. It seems that this album is criminally underrated, as I've only seen "See the Changes" talked about as anything noteworthy off this album.

The harmonizing on CSN represents their best and there is no finer example than the stunning and nicely paced "Shadow Captain". How this isn't a staple of classic rock radio is beyond me, but what do they know anyway? You can immediately feel that mid-70's California laid back vibe once this song starts, and it's maintained well throughout the record.

Graham Nash contributes a few tunes that add some somber moments. The gorgeous "Carried Away" is right up there with "Our House" as one of my most favorite piano led tunes the band has recorded. And of course the absolutely epic "Cathedral" starts off slow and brooding only to climax in a fury of anti-religious lyrics that are just mesmerizing.

"Dark Star" remains one of the grooviest tunes from the album. Featuring some great keyboards in the background, this song never fails to get me bobbing my head. The closer "I Give You Blind" is similar to this, and is the song that packs the most punch instrumentally.
