    this! ok its not exactly earth shattering but its very tuneful 70's pop rock and Bish knew his way around a hook (for this album anyway) I know RS loathed it, im guessing most of the press were ambivalent towards it

    Production is dated and not very subtle but there is good stuff on this album.

    This is armchair quarterback reviewing at its worst. As if CSN(Y) should be what he wants them to be. Want something heavy? Why don't you write and record it yourself?
    (Okay, I realize this review is four 'n a half decades old :D But it still got my back up.)

    It's still too sweet, too soothing, too perfect, and too good to be true.

    Did he only listen to the Nash songs? :sigh:

    That's pretty bad.

    Bob Dylan's Street Legal.
    I don't remember anyone saying anything positive about this one in '78; it was the first time I'd seen a Dylan record in the cut-out bin shortly after it was released. Regardless, it's one of my most listened-to Dylan titles.

    That whole thing was like putting chicken tikka masala on spaghetti. Two great things that *really* don't work together.

    Another vote for Jethro Tull's A Passion Play.

    Saw the tour and always loved the album since that.

    Blows Against the Empire - Paul Kantner/Jefferson Starship

    One of my favorite albums. I have four copies of the original release, which sort of defies reason. But that’s OK. Here’s an excerpt of the review by Ed Ward in the February ‘71 issue of Rolling Stone. I don’t think Ed liked it.

    “If Paul Kanter really thinks that the pap he’s serving up here is a blow against the empire, I suggest he take a bowl of oatmeal and a spoon and start throwing the oatmeal at some building he’d like to see topple, just to observe how long it will take.”
