Album Review

It's been 20 years since David Crosby released a collection of new songs, but he's hardly been quiet in those two decades. His occasional reunions with Stephen Stills, Graham Nash, and sometimes Neil Young get the most attention, but he also appeared on David Gilmour's 2006 album On an Island and, more notably, often worked with his son James Raymond on a band called CPR. Raymond is David's chief collaborator on Croz, a skillful evocation of Crosby's early-'70s haze as filtered through early-'90s professionalism. As always, Crosby is supported by a cast of heavy-hitters, but where 1993's A Thousand Roads sometimes seemed weighed down by cameos (an emphasis on covers also helped shift the spotlight away from the man at the center), Croz is tastefully decorated with sly solos by Mark Knopfler and Wynton Marsalis, the focus forever remaining on Croz himself. At the age of 72, his voice remains sweet, sometimes airy, and he and Raymond take advantage of both qualities, occasionally conjuring ghosts of CSN's early-'80s soft rock ("Radio" could easily have slipped onto Daylight Again), but usually allowing the music to amiably drift and linger, sometimes settling in the conscious, sometimes dissipating. Even with songs as spare and haunting as "If She Called" — nothing more than an electric guitar and voice there — Croz is too dedicated to tasty, in-the-pocket grooves and cleanly sculpted digital production to truly be an heir to If I Could Only Remember My Name, but it's the only other solo record of Crosby's that attempts to reckon with similar emotions and sounds. That Croz prefers certainty to the untrammeled melancholy of If I Could Only Remember My Name is a reflection of where he stands in 2014: he's aware he's building upon a past he sometimes pines for, yet he's restless enough to forage ahead into new territory, but only when he's surrounded by cozy, familiar settings.

Food for the Soul

I can't believe how much I needed to hear this. Crosby has perhaps my favorite voice. It's a thrill to hear it so strong and true. Go get 'em, David!

Classic Voice, Classic Sound

I have been a fan for as long as David Crosby has been recording music. So it would be easy to say that I love this album too. But this truly excellent from top to bottom. The music is clean and vocals are very crisp. It reminds me of some of his early work and has great elements of jazz, folk and the California rock sounds of the past. Sometimes a few songs are good on an album and others are so-so. Every song is worth listening to again and again. Thanks David!

takes me back

i have always admired the haunting and ethereal quality of david's chord progressions and his amazingly unique and tight vocal tracks. he has kept the same creative energy and has not made some flat attempt to harken back to his days of glory as so many older rock artists have in making current cd's. listening to this compilation takes my mind back to my college days of hope and promise,.

The singular odyssey of David Crosby remains one of the more remarkable tales in the annals of music history. As a founding member of the pioneering American groups the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, he helped create and popularize the highly influential folk-rock sound, forging the richly harmonic, radiantly acoustic approach that defined the West Coast music scene for years to follow; he also sold millions of records and enjoyed a cultural impact equaled by few of his contemporaries.
