"This was their third album together and, with it, Crosby and Nash proved that the wealth of excellent songwriting they showed in their first two albums was far from exhausted.
Although I couldn't say that the sound here is a departure from the brand of musical beauty they had listeners already accustomed to -although I can't imagine anyone not gasping in wonder at their harmonies, even if he or she were anxiously expecting them -and the core band remains close to prior albums, this is not quite the same than its predecessors.
The mood of "Whistling Down the Wire" is different, there's a certain melancholy to it which I did not think as present before and, particularly in Nash's tunes, a somber tone than in prior compositions. "Marguerita" and "Broken Bird" are gorgeous examples of Graham's depth of feeling, proving that his "sweet" or "tender" spirit does not mean that the man is a "light" composer.
Crosby, it's worth saying, sings two songs of his own fitting with the emotional urgency of Nash's offerings, and clearly belonging to the list of his most powerful compositions. "Time After Time" and, perhaps even more, "Foolish Man" will leave you speechless, and justifiably comparing them with some of his prior classics.
All in all, this album is a must and a testament to one of the most significant and long-lasting musical pairs in popular music, for the last thirty years."

"This would be Crosby and Nash's last studio album (without Stills) for many years. While it was not quite as good as "Wind on the Water" it is still a solid effort. It was a modest hit in the US when it was released in 1976 (reaching number 26 on the Billboard album chart and being certified GOLD) and produced a minor hit, the inspiring "Out of the Darkness"."

"For me it is difficult to understand how great music can not seem to remain "in print." I purchased this in the 70's as an LP when it first appeared in stores, and when the industry reissued it as a CD, I bought it immediately. I noticed that the CD is no longer available.
It is a shame that creative material like this disappears so quickly. I heard David and Graham perform live, and their music has always been incredible. This album, if you can find it, is a "must have" for fans who appreciate their exceptional music."
