3.0 out of 5 stars Hit and miss........, 17 May 2003
This review is from: Byrds (Audio CD)
Don't be fooled, this is not a bad album:
-The Gene Clark tracks are fantastic, and his country tinged Neil Young covers are great.
-Crosby's contributions are mixed: his rendition of Joni Mitchell's 'For Free'is really good, but the rest uninspiring, especially his strange decision to do a sloppy version of 'laughing', a song he had cut on his solo album to much greater effect.
- McGuinn's work is mixed too: 'sweet mary' is folky gem, but the likes of 'rock n' roll' is dire.
- I have great respect for the mans talent, but Hillmans contributions are dire, apart from some brilliant mandolin breaks on Clark and McGuinn's songs.
In short, Good not Great

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic in places!!!!, 2 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Deja Vu (Audio CD)
This album is worth owning for the simple reason it contains possibly the two most impressive neil young tracks he ever composed.'Helpless' and 'Country Girl' are breathtaking, despite Young's refusal to expliot CSN's vocal power. Stephen Stills was also fantastic form here, 'Carry On' and '4+20' amongst his best material outside the first Manassas album. Crosby's contributions are patchy, the newly expanded Byrds album 'Younger than yesterday' are a better showcase of his talent. Nash's tracks sounds twee as ever, but he can be forgiven because of the amazing harmonies he brings to the other members' material. A fine album indeed.
