There is a lot to enjoy on this album. “Lady Of The Island” is a Nash composition which features him on acoustic guitar and just combing his voice with David Crosby’s. “Helplessly Hoping” is another acoustic piece, this time by Stephen Stills. It is a simple composition about yearning for love and proves that simple is often best. “Wooden Ships,” written by Crosby, Stills, and Paul Kantner, explores the theme of nuclear war. It is always interesting to compare this version with that of The Jefferson Airplane. “Guinnevere” is as good as anything David Crosby has written. Even his odd “Long Time Gone” is appealing.
Crosby, Stills, & Nash remains an excellent representative of the light rock side of the late sixties. Its message and timeless beauty still resonate today.
