"I bought this album on a nostalgic whim and what a whim it turned out to be. This is the David Crosby Masterpiece! Spellbinding and humbling music because when you hear an album like this you realise the difference between pure genius talent and the rest of us! Every single track is between 4 and 5 stars with Hero, Too Young to Die, Old Soldier and Through your Hands being the absolute standouts. Too all of us who survived the suicidal moments of our teens - Too Young to Die is an anthem in rememberance of those wild nights out on the road. "Too fast for comfort, too low to fly, too young...to die" And I ask any parent to attempt to stay dry eyed listening to "Through your Hands" "when you ask, why am I not noticed, I say - Your voice does not command! In time you will move mountains and it will come through your hands..." - this everybody, is celestial songwriting. Columbus Natalie and Coverage are superb and very distinct tracks. The whole album can be listened to as one piece of music again and again and again and again - and again!!!
I was always a big Steven Stills fan but this album has opened my eyes (and ears) to the genius of David Crosby. To allow him to sign of this review..."And I wonder, yes I wonder! How do you make sense of this? When the Hero...Kills the Maiden.. with his Kiss..."
On This Album Yes He Could and Did

"If you ever listened to the Byrds Pre-Flyte album of demos that the Byrds made to get their original Columbia recording contract, you might remember a slow song by Crosby (one of his first recorded efforts) called "The Airport Song." On this album almost 30 years later the Croz returns to that lilting slow folk-melodic style. However, because 1000 Roads was recorded during the end of the synthesizer in pop music craze it has a lot of synthesizers backing him up. His voice actually changed little in 30 years.The songs are, as the reviewers below state, uneven. I agree that "Old Soldier" is a standout track and would have held its own on any Byrds or CSN album if Croz had back then been old and wise enough to write it.The title track Thousand Days is also excellent along with Hero and the second song about Croz racing cars as a kid.Croz's previous album Yes I Can was a disappointment, and it made me think No He Cannot. But on Thousand Days He Could and Did."
