"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."
Take some time and enjoy this.

"There was a time in rock and roll history-the mid to late 70's-when singer songwriters were releasing stuff that flew in the face of the current "chic" music movement-back then it was punk. (Think Jonathan Edwards, Emmylou Harris) These albums were probably not ever "hits." They were not easily grasped on first listen. These-like Thousand Roads-took time to be digested. First you have to accept that this Crosby album isn't "If I Could Only Remember My Name" Crosby. This one should be taken on its own. Guess you can still say it sucks, but this reviewer likes it more every time. Don't know about all the "comeback" talk here in these reviews. Fans will agree the Crosby doesn't need a "comeback"-he never left. Another album, another phase. If it was like "Name," people would be complaining that he wasn't growing-so what are you gonna do? Forget the preconceived notions and enjoy this good music. If you are still looking for CSN&Y and "Name" sounds, the title track would sound great with Stills and Young battling in out. I think that Crosby can interpret a song well and I love him when he does his own stuff. You choose."

"Here, David Crosby claims his place in the upper tier of velvet-voiced, romantic singers of our generation, contemporarily equaled possibly only by Art Garfunkel. I'm so glad Crosby make this record, I can hardly contain my enthusiasm! Previous to this lovely collection of music, we've heard David Crosby as intelligent rocker with mostly only glimpses of his quieter vocal subtleties, which bloom in full here.
"Too fast for comfort too low to fly too young to die."
That's David Crosby for you.
Listen to this record. It's a treat."

"I was always a fan of CSNY but didn't really know anything about Crosby's solo work until this album was released back in 1993. To be honest, I mostly bought this album becuz the hit single "Hero" was all over the radio at the time and I am also a big fan of Phil Collins. So I knew i'd get at least one great song but I wasn't expecting too much for the rest of the album. Well I just gotta say, I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of work here and there really aren't any throwaways. The first half of the album has most of the best tracks but the second has a few gems as well. "Hero" is the best track & as you'd expect has excellent harmonies by both Phil & David. Phil also provides solid drumming as always. But I also really enjoyed "Too Young to Die"(a duet with Graham Nash that's right up there with CSN's best work), "Old Soldier", "Through Your Hands", "Yvette in English" and "Natalie" are all exceptional as well. All in all, a really good album with some really great songs that is definitely worth a listen. Especially if you're a fan of CSNY."
