A Welcome Return,
This review is from: Croz (Audio CD)
Strange that - Arguably, Crosby's work with CPR turned out to be some of the most fruitful and beautiful music since "If Only".
Having been reunited with his long lost son (James Raymond) and been to hell and back more times than can be imagined, he seemed to find a completely new cause to his life and the two studio albums reflected that.
As for the new album "Croz", well, this is just beautiful from start to finish. Full of the strange tuning jazzy chords which are his trademark, its beauty reveals itself piece by piece to make a complete whole. Faultless production and in the final analysis, just a joy to listen to.

As enjoyable as this album is I wouldn't quite rate it 5*. But I agree with you James Raymond has elongated Crosby's recording career by 20 years and possibly CSN's touring career aswell. Shame no Jeff Pevar tho - I've heard Crosby say in the past he is the best guitarist he ever worked with. I still live in hope for a CPR reunion ! Thank god the hands of Stills and Young didn't get a chance to ruin the very subtle nature of this recording.

Mr. A. W. Riggs says:
Crosby also said that about Michael Hedges, he is prone to the overstatement. You're right it's not a 5 star record. Some of the innovative Crosby arrangement have been sacrificed for synthesiser and lyrically at times it's weak.

His day of contribution to the music world are well in the past, but he still can make some nice sounds around his Christmas fire. The voice still just has enough to keep one interested. I hear little within this to attract his old listeners, or indeed new other than any one that is sad enough whom wish to keep there collection up to date. Light songs but done reasonably well.
