9 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Pared down to the bare essentials, the rock icon is captivating. With Lighthouse—only his fifth solo album of a decades-spanning career—Crosby’s intimate songs of love, regret, and social protest glow with poetic tenderness. Crosby's tender fingerpicking and vocals have plenty of room to breathe, but the restrained production of Snarky Puppy's Michael League adds subtle color to songs like “The Us Below” and “Somebody Other Than You."

Terrible!

I'm a David Crosby fan from way back. But if you're expecting something like If Only I Could Remeber My Name or even A Thousand Roads, forget it! This album is slow, depressing, non-melodic and David sounds like he's 80 years old. If this is the best he can do now (and he's done great things in the past) he should just hang it up and rest on his incredible laurels.

Unmelodic

I have been a huge croz fan for years and remember him saying that STILLS writes the hits, NASH writes the ballads and he writes the weird stuff. I think this is the weirdest material I have heard from him and there is nothing stripped down and basic about these songs. I kept searching for logical melodies that didn’t have alternate tunings. I didn’t hear one simple hook that grabbed my attention and showed off his powerful vocal range. Maybe the music pond has been fished out and not many are left. I still think he is an incredible asset to acoustic music and is not done with his career as others have suggested. The man needs to earn a living still and on sny given night, can still move me to joyful tears however, this lighthouse has not guided this little blind fish back to where it all began🤔
