I usually hit a fork in the road with this one, where the left and right channels in my head duke it out. For example, itís a better record than I expected. (I didnít expect much.) Phil Collins makes David Crosby look romantic. (David Crosby makes Phil Collins look sexy.) The material is excellent. (Crosby hardly wrote any of it.) David Crosby does a good job singing it. (The original songwriters could have done a better job.) Crosby did write part of ďYvette In English.Ē (Yeah, probably the lousy part.) He wrote all of ďThousand Roads,Ē and thatís one of the best tracks on here. (Gee, maybe he could write an album all by himself in, I dunno, another twenty years.) The man is a legend, and the all-star cast shows how revered he is. (More like FartAid.) Itís an adult pop record, but itís a good adult pop record. (No such animal, compadre.) In fact, I always enjoy listening to this album. (You enjoy watching cartoons too.) His deep life experience resonates when he sings. (Probably just a burrito.) Itís certainly better than Graham Nashís last record. (Has anybody even seen that guy? I think aliens took him.) And I didnít expect David Crosby to still be around in 1993, let alone making music. (The aliens must have had a small ship.) I guess it depends on whether you see the glass as half full or half empty. (Or whether you paid fifteen bucks for this or five.) Me, I think itís great that heís still making music. (Canít argue with you there.)
