Background: CSN, released in 1977, was the second studio album by Crosby, Stills & Nash (or the third, if you’re counting Deja Vu as a CSN album). The LP reached #6 on the U.S. charts and has sold 4 million copies.
The times had certainly changed since Déjà Vu’s release in 1970. Nevertheless, there was a hunger in audiences for a return to the harmony-soaked idealism with which the trio had been catapulted to popularity, and CSN consequently reached number two on the charts, behind Fleetwood Mac’s megasuccessful Rumours. The music here is very good, though probably not up to the hard-to-match level of Crosby, Stills & Nash or Déjà Vu. …It has held up remarkably well, both as a memento of its time and as a thoroughly enjoyable musical work.
