Southern rock, the exact proportion of which varies. I like the rock parts more, though I'm not against a slide guitar solo. Pass on the fiddle tracks though.

Just slightly disappointed that this album is not about man asses. That aside, the album didn't disappoint at all. It's just simply good rock music. What sets it apart is the variation within the album, the wide range of influences Stills infuses his rock with and the fact that no matter what style he mixes in, it all sounds good. My favorite track is the final, bluesy song of the album.

I had no idea what to expect from this one, and was pleasantly surprised to find that the answer was "a little bit of everything"! I love an album that's not afraid to wade around the genre pool, so really enjoyed hearing rock, folk, country, blues and who knows what else in quick succession. Definitely up for more listens. Fave track - "Bound to Fall"

There are so many five star songs on here but with the exception of Colorado, he really lost me in the mid section between Fallen Eagle and Johnny's Garden. Too much fiddle and slide guitar in this section detracted from an otherwise beautiful album. It finds its edge again real nice from Bound to Fall, his vocal range is incredible. Move Around is a sick tune, his voice in this reminds me of someone that I can't put my finger on (maybe Neil Young which would make sense). The drumming across the whole record is out of control good.

Never paid so much attention to solo work of CSNY apart from Y. And this is one of the few albums so far that I did know at all, not even the album title rang a bell. Quite a few different genres - the start of the album is not so special but I am glad that I did not give up: at some point there is a whole sequence of excellent songs especially The Treasure (Take one), so definitely 4*

Stills at his height following CSNY's breakup. I love the thematic shifts from side to side. First side is like a jam session, with tracks blending into each other, simultaneously distinctive yet hard to tell when one ends and one starts. Sometimes there's a break like in "Jet Sigh" halfway through the song and it fools with you. Huge sudden shift with the second track going back to the roots in country and bluegrass. Next huge sudden shift (starting with "It Doesn't Matter") is largely folk rock with plenty of blues and other influences (like psychedelia in "Move Around"), and continues to the end, although the fourth side gets notably harder. Double albums are best when there's diversity like this. Yet nothing is out-of-place, and Stills makes the best of each aspect. No hits but there are standout tracks on each side. Great placement of tracks to keep the energy going.

-"Right Now" gets bangin' -"Fallen Eagle" is a good, classic country song -"Don't Look At My Shadow" has a good beat and the like guitar and violin are groovin' -"Bound to Fall" has lots o' instruments going and the harmonies are interesting -The first chunk of tracks (maybe up to like "Fallen Eagle") are pretty solid. Lots of cool instruments and stuff going on, but then it becomes a little up and down

I like that the double album is divided up into similar sounding sections. Wikipedia says the first section is supposed to have a latin feel, which I don't really see. I still enjoyed that side, and felt like I enjoyed the country side the most (side B). Favorite tracks: "Fallen Eagle", "The Treasure", "Colorado"

Cet album du groupe Stephen Stills est très long mais néanmoins excellent. Il doit d'ailleurs beaucoup à la performance de son leader, Stephen Stills. À l'inverse du précédent opus, il dépeint un Stephen Stills bien plus conscient du monde qui l'entoure et moins égocentré. Le premier projet de la bande, sobrement baptisé Stephen Stills, était en effet construit autour de la personnalité de Stephen Stills L'unique morceau du CD, Stephen Stills, n'avait pour seules paroles que les mots Stephen et Stills inlassablement répétés pendant plus de soixante minutes. La moindre intervention d'un des autres membres du groupe donnait lieu à une tarte en plein visage de la part de Stephen Stills.

This was a very good album. I did not know a single song beforehand but had everything I like about Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Some songs with nice harmonies, some songs with searing guitar parts ("The Treasure" in particular) and a very "end of the 60's" feel over all. Almost like a final gasp of the decade although it was 1972. I will definitely listen to these songs again. Would have gotten a 4.5 if possible but a little too long. Also "Johnny's Garden" sounds like "Midnight Rider".

I think this is a very good release and ranks among Stephen Still's best work. I vacillate between thinking the thematic sides are a great idea and a so-so notion, but the expansive band is impressive throughout. The stylistic variety is broad and seems to be a collaborative effort.

A double album of really 4 different themed sides. I would guess that this would make the most sense on the LP's on which this was originally released. If you felt like some bluegrass you'd put on Side 2, if you were in the mood for something heavier, you'd put on Side 4. Which for me would mean I could skip a side because when this album goes from side 1's great latin-rock into the country on side 2, my mind starts wandering and i feel the need to start skipping songs. I recognize the quality of the songs, I hear the amazing songwriting and musicianship, but it's just not my style and will never be. The folk on Side 3 and Bluesrock on Side 4 are once again more to my liking fortunately. All in all is this an incredible album, with quality songs throughout and that's not something you see much on double-albums. This might in fact be one of the best double-albums of all time.

A sprawling masterpiece, akin to the Beatles' White Album, the Stones' Exile on Main St., or Wilco's Being There in its makeup, if not its sound. Rock, folk, blues, country, Latin, and bluegrass have all been styles touched on in Stephen Stills' career, and the skilled, energetic musicians he had gathered in Manassas played them all on this album. What could have been a disorganized mess in other hands, though, here all gelled together and formed a cohesive musical statement.

3 songs in... really good. I find CSN a little soft for my tastes (though I do like/appreciate them) so I was expecting this to be similar but it's much harder blues rock. ... Spoke a bit too soon - got real folksy-ballady right after that. LOL. Still, can't complain too much - it's very pretty. Turns out the four sides have different themes. Side B was the most CSN and probably my least favorite, but not by any means bad - just personal preference here.

Aunque me resultó agradable su voz, este tipo de discos es el que pienso que me suena "avejentado", porque está muy localizado en tiempo-espacio, acaso.

I probably like something from every band associated with Stephen Stills. "So Begins the Task" and "Johnny's Garden" were interesting enough to make me pause to see what track was playing. I heard some elements that made me think of Southern Rock. This album also includes some fiddle and pedal steel for an occasional classic country vibe. Overal the album was fine.

Some chill country - I enjoyed 'Colorado'. I haven't listened to Stills or Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young before so glad to find something new.

Adequate blues/folk/country album. Rating might have gone up to 4 upon repeat listens, but for now it is just okay, so 3 stars.

Hemos oído (demasiados) discos de los miembros de Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young y creo que este ha sido el menos aburrido de todos ellos. Pese a lo exageradamente largo, al menos se siente un poco de variación, subidas, bajadas e incluso algo de onda latina y subidas de volumen, cosa que con sus otros cuates nunca sucede. De cualquier manera, aunque tiene ratos rescatables, no es un disco que me veo poniendo otra vez.

2.5 | Otro disco para la larguísima colección que seguro se juntará de Stills, Nash, Young y todos los etceteras. La verdad nunca lo había escuchado y, aunque se me hace un disco bastante bueno, no me salta como algo que se debiera resaltar por sobre mucho de lo que hicieron sus otros colegas. Tiene a ratos un sabor a rock sureño y en otros momentos en canciones lentas tintes country que caen muy bien pero que siendo honesto no me jalaron ni llamaron lo suficiente como para decir que lo volvería a poner. Disco bien, con talento pero tampoco brillante.

Middle of the road 70's production. Mostly filler songs except for 2, which are quite good: Song of Love and Colorado.

I imagine bell bottoms and handle bars. I get it that this was a project for Stephen Stills, later of CSNY, to get out his solo material. That is all. He put out a great vibe with Manassas and then an amazing vibe down the road.

The best of this album IMO: - Song of Love - Blues Man A nice balance of folk, country, rock and blues. Their blues and rock songs are the best of this album. I'm less a fan of folk. 3.1/5

Cet album ne m'a ni inspiré, ni interessé. Je vais par conséquent vous décrire mon emploi du temps de la journée: De 7h à 11h30, je suis contraint de travailler, et donc comme vous le savez d'écouter les albums des générateurs (celui ci ainsi que les générateurs pirates que j'ai en ma possession). De 11h30 à 13h30, je prends soin de faire un peu d'activité physique, ainsi que de me substanter en nourriture. De 13h30 à 17h, je reprends mon activité professionnelle, qui consiste je le rapelle à écouter les albums générés. A 17h30, j'ai rendez-vous à l'ambassade allemande, afin de préparer mon appel à l'encontre de la décision de justice du tribunal de Basse-Saxe, qui me refuse l'accès à son territoire. A 19h, je serai de retour chez moi pour un nouveau repas, que j'effectuerai en écoutant quelques vinyles de mon choix que j'ai en ma possession. Vers 21h, j'irai me coucher, afin d'attaquer une nouvelle journée, avec je l'espère un bel album proposé par Robert.

I mean...this album is solidly, enjoyably okay. Would I re-listen a lot? No, but there are some interesting tracks on here. Not sure how to describe this one. Honky tonk blues? In any case, I liked it a good bit but it stops short of killer tracks or any real love for the style here. But yeah, I'd give this a halfhearted endorsement. Why not? Fave track: Hide It So Deep

I have yet to find a double album that really needed to be a double album. The wiki page for this one is a headscratcher too - they had 84-hour recording sessions and at one point Stills was in the studio for 106 hours(!) for...this? It's not bad by any means but it doesn't exactly scream of the wild mad genius you'd expect from that sort of production. Don't get me wrong, it's fun in places (What To Do is probably my favourite track) but a lot of it just feels very standard. I guess that's hindsight for you.

eu não ouvi tudo porque to sem paciencia pra ouvir uma hora, mas foi metade. outra hora escuto tudo. o pouco que escutei gostei bastante, me soa como um creedence mais leve, sem vocal rasgadasso e guitarra estourada. não que isso seja ruim, mas o suave é bom

p270. 1972. 3 stars CSNY meet the Byrds and Merle Haggard. Well done of its kind, but not many standout songs. It frequently strays into musical wankage and outstays its welcome. Would have been a far better single album.

Of CSN and sometimes Y (I laughed way too hard writing that, curse my Dad and his love of tagging me in dad jokes on Facebook), I probably listen to Stills the least. And I certainly hadn't heard of this band from one of their breaks. This is a good album, though it skews more bluesy than I typically prefer. I tend to like the more folk rock aspects of CSNY. Some of this hits that spot but most falls in that blues route. "Jet Set (Sigh)" was probably my favorite track, it was a great blues song that had an exciting turn at the end of it. I do find it hilarious that all four members of CSNY had an album in the top five at the same time, though two of them were together on an album.

Preferred the first half of the album, which was more rock centric to the more country/bluegrass vibes of the second half. Reminiscent of what was to become with Crosby stills Nash and young. Acid rock meets the stones with a fiddle in the middle.

Colorado sticks on on this one so far. I am a bit hot and cold when it comes to this "Americana" style country/folk from the 60s/70s. Sometimes I like the twanginess and other times it's just not what I want to hear. This one is a bit more soulful so I like it, but probably not something that will stay in rotation a ton for me.

Stephen Stills is, to my ear, undeniably talented as a writer, singer, guitarist, and performer. It shines through on this album. No fault of his own, stylistically I'm not as close to what the tracks on this album sound like as I used to be. While the collegiate-aged me would have loved this, it's not so much my preference these days. Great work, though. Truly.

This was pretty close to getting a 2, but it still consistently had things that I liked. It felt very long. Not much to say. Most of it wasn't my thing. My favourite song was It Doesn't Matter.

This was pretty good, some surprisingly heavy tracks (Stills has an almost grungy tone to his voice which was very unexpected considering the release date of this) and a nice blend of southern rock and folk subgenres. Pretty damn long but it changed things up just enough

Notes - Debut album by Stephen stills’ band manassas - Split into 4 sections, each with their own genre and style - Rock, bluegrass, folk, blues - Sections 2 and 4 less effective - The folk-rock sections are best - Featuring Chris hillman of the Byrds! - Part of the Crosby stills Nash and young cinematic universe - This album is so long, 21 songs - Could’ve been 12/13 fav - it doesn’t matter - great harmonies and phaser-y guitars Least fav - dont look at my shadow - biy too yeehaw 3/5 - pretty good but needed more focus and finesse
