  • It was big news in 1969 when former key members of the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and the Hollies--three of the finest bands of the '60s--splintered off to form their own trio. Despite their already-proven talents, few could have imagined the gossamer vocal blend that would become the trademark of supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash. The band's debut effectively provided the soundtrack to the summer of '69.
  • For his part, Steve Stills keeps exploring the progressive folk-rock sound that he'd pioneered with Buffalo Springfield; signature tune "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" is an expansive, multi-section affair that makes full use of the group's vocal skills. Fresh from the Hollies, Graham Nash adds an accessible pop sensibility, epitomized by the effervescent ditty "Marrakesh Express." David Crosby, always the wild card in the Byrds, here adds rough edges and flashes of mystery with his cutting protest rocker "Long Time Gone" and the exquisite art-folk of "Guinnevere." With this kind of firepower under its belt, it's no wonder CSN quickly became one of the biggest groups of their era.

Uncut (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "CSN defined themselves by chilling out and laying back, turning down the volume on the Byrds/Springfield amplifiers. In place of electric fizz and crackle came softer tones, richer layering."

Dirty Linen (p.56) - "CSN showcased tight harmonies and innovative songwriting..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Every song was masterfully crafted and performed, some of the most valuable work its three principals would ever produce..."
