Instead, it is rather innocuous and forgettable. (7/10) 9. "Captured Light" (8:13) opens with some CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG power and distortion. Then harmonized voices! This is cool! The bass is awesome. I really enjoy the weave of layered voices despite their difficult-to-discern lyrics. Though the vocals veer the song more into the territory of THE ASSOCIATION, the instrumental part definitely stay strongly reminiscent of CSN&Y.

"Sparkling Sun" conjures some Revolver-era Beatles, "Violet Haze" features a sparkling, catchy guitar riff and playful lyrics, and "Better Than I" shows off the band's CSNY-like harmonies, proving that there are no filler tracks on the album. Likewise, closer "Once" contains the requisite melancholic summation of thoughts and leaves the listener wanting more. But it's lead single "Down" that navigates the band from where they've been to where they're going.

So as such such, its nice but not memorable. But "Black Thunder" fixes that in a hurry, a booming and volatile beat with the rhythm section doing some serious heavy damage.

"Sugar for the Queen" for example, feels like the sharper, more angular sibling of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's "Deja Vu," whereas "Future Bones" is more of an R&B descendant, with a slick, jazzy sheen.

Taylor [pictured, right] was best known for his association with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, but his credits also include Van Morrison and Paul Butterfield's band. News of Taylor's death was reported by his partner, Patti McGovern Taylor, on Facebook. She wrote: "To me he was just a Good Man, a Good Friend, a Good Father, a Good Grandfather or Pop Pop, a Great Drummer and much beloved by many." Born in Denver, Taylor moved to California in 1967, where his band Clear Light signed to Elektra Records. In the late 1960s, he met Stephen Stills. In 1969, Taylor was invited to drum with Crosby, Stills & Nash on their debut album. He stayed with the band as they added Neil Young to the line-up and performed with them at Woodstock and on their Déjà Vu album. After CSNY, Taylor played in Stills' band, Manassas. He also performed with Van Morrison at the 1974 Montreux Jazz Festival. In 1990, he underwent a liver transplant. After leaving music, he worked as a drug and alcohol interventionist in Los Angeles. Among those paying tribute were former Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum and Brian Jonestown Massacre's Anton Newcome, who said he owes his life to Taylor for helping him with drug dependency.

  • Graham Nash: "Will there be any more CSNY? Right now, it looks pretty bleak"
  • Graham Nash has described the future of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young as "pretty bleak" in the new issue of Uncut, dated January 2015 and out now. After a recent public disagreement between Neil Young and David Crosby, culminating in Young stating that there will never be another CSNY reunion, Nash has revealed that he would nonetheless be "incredibly sad" if the four never performed or recorded together again. "Will there be any more CSNY? Right now, it looks pretty bleak," he says. "Neil is a little upset with me because of my book, Wild Tales. And he's obviously upset with David [Crosby]. "But we've been here before, hearing people saying CSNY will never go forward, but we always manage to do something. If a few oddly chosen words in the press from David and a paragraph of mine in my book stopped CSNY making music again, that would be incredibly sad." The new issue of Uncut, featuring Neil Young on the cover and an interview with Nash inside, is out now. Visit our new, dedicated features section, with plenty of our best long pieces archived there.

  • Today, rock legend Neil Young celebrates his 69th birthday. Young is still going strong over 50 years into a career in which he's seen and done nearly all as an uber-successful solo artist and member of Rock Hall acts Buffalo Springfield & Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young as well as leading his own Crazy Horse ensemble. Unbelievably, Neil is still going strong as he's released two very different albums in 2014.A few months back we posted a Throwback Thursday column about Phish's 1998 performances at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California for that year's Bridge School Benefit Concerts.

  • Neil Young bassist, Rick Rosas, dead at 65
  • Printable version Rick Rosas, long time bass player for Neil Young, Crosby Stills Nash and Young and recently Crazy Horse, has died at the age of 65.

  • Though the members of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young had been performing solo or in various groupings since parting in 1970, there was a fervent demand for a regrouping of the "American Beatles" when they announced the 1974 tour represented in this set. There's a pleasingly loose feel to the performances that serves to define those moments rather than slavishly attempting to recreate their studio recordings...

  • CSNY's "Doom Tour" exhumed, and reconstructed into an ideal show from their stadium excursion... To call this live compilation from CSNY's 1974 tour "long-awaited" is, on one level, an act of revisionism. Certainly, it has been a long time coming, but it's also true that in the intervening 40 years, the competing egos of CSNY have done their best to suggest that if the tour itself wasn't best forgotten, there was nothing to be gained by revisiting it...

  • Woodstock be damned. Peace, love, and understanding sprouted in January 1967 during San Francisco's Human Be-In, peaked three summers later at Max Yasgur's 600 acres in upstate New York, and died that December (1969) at the hands of the Hells Angels securing Altamont Speedway for the Rolling Stones. Nixon, Vietnam, and Watergate won out. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young performed at both Woodstock and Altamont, a beacon of folk idealism at the former, and harbinger of ego and excess by the latter...

At loose ends during 1968, and either fired from their respective bands (David Crosby from The Byrds, Stephen Stills from Buffalo Springfield), or, in case of Graham Nash, leaving The Hollies and journeying to America, somehow the trio met up in California and the rest, as they say, is history...

  • Ah, the healing hands of time! When Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young played the last show of their hugely successful 1974 tour, the tapes of the nine concerts that they'd professionally recorded for a potential live album were shelved. The feelings were too raw, the bad memories too fresh for anyone to touch them, no matter what treasures they held. It would be too much like living through a bad break-up, scene by scene, over and over again...

  • Forty summers ago, North America's greatest dysfunctional supergroup patched things up for a while, filled stadiums and left behind tales of backstage excess and shaky vocal harmonies. The first-ever set of recordings from those shows is fittingly over-the-top - three discs and one DVD with footage of eight songs. The two electric-set discs have a crackling, wired-on-something energy: Check how Stephen Stills and Neil Young trade unhinged solos on Young's "Revolution Blues...

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Déjà Vu (from Blender)
  • On release, the first CSNY album sold 2 million copies, but it has aged badly. Young provides the sparse, stunning "Helpless" and a quirky suite called "County Girl" and collaborates with Stills on cute closer "Everybody I Love You." The rest is long on self-important hippie bluster like "Woodstock," about the festival Young later compared to "people standing around a pile of shit, looking at it."
  • 8-22-2010
  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - 4 Way Street (from Blender)
  • For evidence of why Young was so uncommitted to CSNY even at the height of their success, consider this live set, recorded in 1970. There's a spine-tingling solo Young medley and his interesting acoustic take on "Cowgirl in the Sand," but the electric jams are turgid, and the less said about Stills's appalling and pompous "America's Children," the better.

Sure, it's sloppy, poorly recorded and a bit self-indulgent, but hey, it was 1970 and it does not compare with the bloated carcasses released later in the decade (Zep's The Song Remains The Same comes to mind)...

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Deja Vu (from Robert Christgau)
  • Of the five (or seven, I forget) memorable tunes here, N's "Our House" is a charming but cloying evocation of puppy domesticity, while both N's sanctimonious "Teach Your Children" and C's tragicomic "Almost Cut My Hair" document how the hippie movement has corrupted our young people. S half scores twice and in-law M provides the climax. Which leaves Y's "Helpless" as the group's one unequivocal success this time out...

And when S explains how when he was young old people were wrong and now that he's old young people are wrong and then disses "overfed talking heads" without ever once acknowledging overfed singing exhead C to his immediate left, I imagine some computer nerd with more brains than sense joining the arms race just to get even...

  • American Dream' fades out on the line "Why not keep on singing anyway?" – and that lackadaisical slogan seems to sum up the spirit in which the first Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young studio album since 1970's Déjà Vu was made. Despite pleasant melodies, the occasional interesting song and the signature harmonies, American Dream is, for the most part, a snoozefest.The enervation at the heart of this album suggests that these four veterans found themselves washed up on the shore of the late Eight.....

  • Along with many other people, I had hoped that the addition of Neil Young to Crosby, Stills, and Nash would give their music the guts and substance which the first album lacked. Live performances of the group suggested that this had happened. Young's voice, guitar, compositions and stage presence added elements of darkness and mystery to songs which had previously dripped a kind of saccharine sweetness. Unfortunately, little of this influence carried over into the recording sessions for Deja Vu...
