3.0 out of 5 stars Four Winds in Four Directions..., 23 May 2012
This review is from: 4 Way Street (Audio CD)
Don't be disheartened by the lack of votes if you're negative about this album - people are voting yes or no according to whether they agree with it or not, which is not the purpose. The question is, 'was this review helpful'? Opinions are likely to be divided. I remember a friend buying this at the time, and I thought first of all that the title was ironic: this is four men, on the first half at least, heading in four seperate directions, and the breakup of the group looks imminent here as each parades their own material seperately. They're already sounding more like solo artists and less incohesive as a group. Secondly, I thought the second album with its long rock pieces to be less than CSNY's best and a bit raucaus.
However, nostalgia bites at my heels as I write these words, and I find myself wanting to own it. Niel Young has his own strong following, but for me Crosby's 'On The Lee Shore' is a fine rendition of a beautiful song, and Nash's 'Immigration Man' is another great performance - signalling that these two were both soon to deliver excellent first solo albums, and then together give their all on 'Another Stony Evening'. So, if you haven't got those, or if you have and love them, then Four Way Street is probably still worth having.

I meant to say, 'less cohesive', rather than a double negative!
