Déjà Vu is the second studio album by Crosby, Stills & Nash, and their first as a quartet with Neil Young. It was released in March 1970 by Atlantic Records. It topped the pop album chart for one week and generated three Top 40 singles: "Woodstock", "Teach Your Children", and "Our House". It was re-released in 1977 and an expanded edition was released in 2021 to mark its fiftieth anniversary. In 2003, the album was ranked No. 148 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, and later was ranked No. 220 on the 2020 edition of the list. Certified 7× platinum by RIAA, the album's sales currently sit at over 8 million copies. It remains the highest-selling album of each member's career to date.Wikipedia
Perfect inflection point between 60’s folk/rock and what was to come in the early 70’s for rock. Everybody was for a moment in that band totally together and making a near perfect album.
All of this variety made Déjà Vu a rich musical banquet for the most serious and personal listeners, while mass audiences reveled in the glorious harmonies and the thundering electric guitars, which were presented in even more dramatic and expansive fashion on the tour that followed.
This one I struggled with. It is a technically well done album but most of the tracks just dont land for me. Songs that hit a more folk rock tone like Woodstock are generally enjoyable but tracks like Helpless just don't work for me. That said the harmonies are wonderful and there is something about the percussion that I do generally quite like.
what a weird juxtaposition this album is. the music in the background is alright, some bits are quite enjoyable, but the singing grates. for starters i can't really be arsed with neil youngs voice and then when they do that super 70s harmonised singing stuff it doubles the pain.
You really think this laurel canyon roots folk is the shit. I get it. Truly, I do. Now how about we try something else?
Always preferred this band with Young onboard. The vocal harmonies alone are mindblowing, but overall just a fantastic front to back album.
This is what happens when CSN's brilliant harmonization with Neil Young's rocking guitar style.
That's a hell of an opening track. Fav track is definetly Almost Cut My Hair. Deja Vu and Country Girl are strong contenders too. Just an overall solid album with a cohesive track order and stellar songs. 👌
I'd rather be watching The Littlest Hobo
One of my all time favorite Albums
love me some CSN&Y
Front to back, fantastic album. Am hits.
So good I listened twice... Nice to have a purposeful listen to this music I've heard plenty of times before, as I gained a new appreciation for their vocals/harmonies as well as incredible instrument playing. Highlights: -Carry On -Teach Your Children -Almost Cut My Hair -Helpless -Woodstock -Everybody I Love You
Yo listened to this album many times before, Almost cut my hair really connects with me lol. Our House is a beautiful love song and the first CSNY song i ever really liked.
Such a great one.
Amazing album. I knew most of these songs already but didn't know they were all from the same album. A talented bunch of guys.
This was extremely enjoyable, a really varied album of decent tracks.
Absolutely love this album. Beautiful songs with some awesome voices/guitars. 4.7
very very goood
One of the first ever supergroups and perhaps equally as talented as McBusted.
Classic! Love this album. Wonderful vocal harmonies en great songs!
Easily makes my top 10 list
Is this the only good supergroup full album—discounting the Eagles adding Joe Walsh? Is this a flawless album? I’d argue yes. Good instrumental arrangements, solid musicianship, beautiful harmonies, hood lyrics, good variety within genre, spans the emotional spectrum and has that special sauce, those moments of transcendence that make it a truly great album. I can listen to it over and over. EASY 5. (Easiest 5 I’ll give unless Weezer Blue Album or any Elliott Smith Album but Roman Candle is on the list)
Our house is one of my favourite songs I've found this year, what a lovely and wholesome bit of music history
This is weirdly a difficult album to review - do I mark it 4/5 stars because at this point it has become almost a stereotypical "classic" ... or because I know each of the songs altogether too well ... or is it really this great? For the millions of people who are of a similar viewpoint, it's probably the same (or else you've heard the songs so much by now you ever want to hear them again!). Not much point in commenting on the style - excellent songwriting and musicianship, each member definitely contributing their own unique flair (and apparently almost all at different times - there was much conflict among the members while recording, so the stories go...). If nothing else, it's a great and important document of the biggest and/or most important music of the time. It does falter just a little for me at the end (it frustrates me when albums do that - save me a golden nugget for the album closer plz (...eagerly awaiting Who's Next...)) but the first 7-8 tracks are all too great to knock this down a star. 9/10 5 stars
Well, I was today years old when I discovered that 'Our House' was CSN&T. I always thought it was some one hit wonder 80's English Band. Great album. Great hits. So many talented writers on one album. Love it.
5/5 - Classic
This album has crazy range, some obvious Neil Young, some classic rock, some bluesy stuff. Killer overall.
Classic album. Neil Young's lead guitar shines through this album and makes what was already a supergroup even better. One of the greatest folk rock statements ever
An old favourite, just as good as when I first heard it
brilliant, utterly brilliant. Particularly liked helpless. I would love to sit around a campfire and sing this album
I've heard this album more times than I can count. Songs from the album were part of my dads playlists growing up. I know all the words to every song but never asked who sung them. Hearing this as a full album brings a lot of memories. Chores, playing toys in my room, car rides, relaxing on the couch but mostly my dad. Music is a powerful thing!
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's voices when they harmonize is the sound of the horns you hear at St. Peter's Pearly Gates. Yes, better than Van Halen. Yes, better than the Eagles. YES, better than The Beatles (sorry, I don't make the rules). There is not a single bad song on this album, and while it's distinctly a folk-rock record, there is so much sound that comes from it that nothing sounds the same. I can see why some think Our House is a little out of place, but to me it adds a lot more diversity to the sound this album represents. Modern folk and Americana artists owe a lot to this band, but specifically this album. This is a masterclass in guitar songwriting and playing. Absolutely one of my favorite records of all time. Favorite Songs: Carry On, Helpless Least Favorite: 4 + 20
5/5 A true classic by one of the earliest supergroups. Graham Nash said that other than the tracks Neil Young contributes to the record, he did not play or sing another note.
Classic songs, beautiful melodies, exquisite guitar playing - an album that seems to capture the mood of the moment as the folky, peaceful, acoustic sixties (Deja Vu, Our House) turns into the gritty, tribal, rocky seventies (Almost Cut My Hair, Woodstock). This is America.
CSNY are a super group I get behind. I saw these guys in April 2000, and they put on a 3.5 hour show! Impressive for a bunch of guys in their mid to upper 50s. I can’t find the specific set list, but the average set for that tour was 30 songs (includes 2 encores). That’s a lot of entertainment for $40. This album is loaded with great songs! It’s starts off with one of my CSNY favorites, Carry On. I love the opening, pressing guitar part and the break of styles halfway through. Our house is a beautiful song born out of one of life’s ordinary moments when Graham Nash and Joni Mitchell bought a vase one day. There’s even a song about a hippie almost cutting his hair. Unfortunately track 9 is a stinker and track 10 is just OK. For all I care this album stops after track 8. And fuck are they an incredible 8 tracks! It’s interesting to me that almost every song on this album was written by one member alone and not in collaboration. The final product is cohesive and seamlessly blends their instrumentals and voices together. It’s hard to believe they didn’t write together. In order of preference, I like the songs by Stills the most (Carry On and 4+ 20), then Nash (Our House and Teach Your Children), Crosby (Déjà Vu and Almost Cut My Hair), and Young (Helpless and Country Girl). Joni Mitchell’s Woodstock is quite good too. Young and Stills both wrote the closer, Everybody I Love You.
If ever there were a case for letting your freak flag fly, this album might be it. CSNY are in peak form here, with their signature tight harmonies, lyrics of protest & empowerment, virtuosic guitar playing, and all around 60s love. Each member has a chance to shine, but it's when they all come together as a cohesive whole that this album transcends. "Carry On", the opener, is a prime example - the harmonies rarely more impressive, the organ & Young's guitar riffing off of each other, the message one of eternal love & peace. Jerry Garcia's pedal steel adds some nice twang to the soulful "Teach Your Children", and Young's "Helpless" aches with raw emotion. "Our House" might be the weakest entry here, for my money, but it does boast a unique vocal from Nash, perhaps the most underrated of the "supergroup". But for me, it's "Woodstock" that puts this album over the edge - an amalgam of music and vocal that encapsulates the 60s. This rockin' reinvention of a rather turgid Joni Mitchell tune puts us on an astral plane with CSNY, where we're all stardust. Perfection. I might normally rank this a high 4 stars, but I'm pushing it up to a 5, just to piss off the whiners.
Dit is genieten; beste ontdekking so far ! 🥰🤩
A good album an introduction to this legendary band
Favs: Carry On, Helpless, Woodstock Mehs: None I'm a sucker for this kind of music from this time period, and I'm a sucker for Neil Young. Helpless is one of the all time best sad songs.
You can’t tell me “Almost Cut My Hair” wasn’t a huge influence on Derek Stevens’ work: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VUrbtUwsRXo
A little biased here, because I've known this album since I was a teenager. It is fantastic - songs, performance, arrangements, etc. I should also add that Stephen Stills is one of the most underrated guitarists in history. His guitar work on the tracks "Carry On" and "Déjà Vu" should not be ignored.
Just listened to the 50th anniversary of this record. Good lord is it good. Every song is a gem. The volitility of the personnel in this band is completely quelled when they are able to make the music they all love to make together. These songs are beautiful, heartfelt, and purely collaborative. One can listen and reflect and weep both out of sadness and happiness at the same time. A masterpiece.
Just wow. Every verse is a surprise, but it also manages to work in some tender moments. The best CSN&Y album I've heard. So far.
Great throwback of the era where they experimented with great guitar riffs.
To sie nazywa albumik na rozpoczecie 2k22, klasyczny material folkowego rocka, bedacy prawdopodobnie magnum opus bandy, a jednoczesnie pierwsza plyta ktora nagrywali kwartetem z Neilem Youngiem w skladzie, 36 minut materialu, ktory jest dosc rowno podzielony miedzy czlonkow zespolu, ale jednak z widocznie mniejszym udzialem Younga, jesli chodzi o instrumentale, w ogole ciekawie nagrywali material, bo kazdy sobie ogarnial sesje na swoje traki i tylko prosil innych czego potrzebowali zeby im nagrali, wiec bardzo inwidualne podejscie do tworzenia, ale sprawdza sie ta formula, bo traki wyraznie roznia sie od siebie i nawet nie po samych wokalach, ale wykorzystanych instrumentalach da sie poznac do kogo nalezy dany kawalek, skoro kazdy pisal i tworzy pod siebie, to nie ma tutaj zbytniej spojnosci lirycznej w postaci motywu przewodniego, opener bedzie prawdopodbnie inspirowany tym, ze cale trio CSN bylo zdumpowane w tamtym okresie, wiec carrujom naprzod wiadrami copium, ale beda tez lekcje boomerskie dla nowofagow i o tym jak to kazde pokolenie ma swoj czas, czy o nie scinaniu kudlow jako symbolu hameryki walczacej, kazdy z czlonkow ma cos co chce przekazac i na 10 trakach udalo sie sporo tego przemycic, albo raczej na 9, bo woodstock jest coverem joni mitchell, fenomenem tej plyty jest to, ze jest tak rowna a jednoczesnie tak roznorodna, co slychac rowniez w samej technice nagrywania poszczegolnych kawalkow, sa tutaj utwory oparte na jednym instrumencie jak 4+ 20 Stillsa, gdzie caly kawalek jest tworzony przez jednego akustyka, a sa kawalki jak country girll czy carry on gdzie wykorzystywana jest sciana dzwieku, nakladajace sie na siebie instrumenty budujace wrazenie orkiestrowego brzmienia a w innych miejscach wrecz szumu tla zeby jeszcze bardziej spotengowac efekty harmonii z ktorych zespol byl znany juz nawet na debiutanckim krazku, a z dodatkowym glosem jeszcze lepiej to brzmi, ciezko jest wybrac ulubione kawalki z takiego materialu, ale zrobie miejsce na plejce dla kazdego z czlonkow, wiec teach your children Nasha, 4 + 20 Stillsa, helpless Younga i tytulowy deja vu Crosbiego, a calosc do biblioteczki spotifajowej, bo to jedna z tych plyt ktore sluchaja sie same od poczatku do konca
Beautiful harmonies, great guitar sound, several outstanding tracks - helpless, our house, teach your children - don't always like the melodies, but the overall sound is always soothing. I played is on repeat all day and loved every second.
Always been a favorite
Crosby, Stills, and Nash really nailed something by adding Neil Young to their lineup. He not only brings some extra great harmonies, I just love it when they cut loose and really rock out. The mellow songs are relaxing and gorgeously arranged, with some of the harmonies giving genuine chills. Just a tight set of songs. As a total aside, I would get this record the day Neil Young pulled his catalog from Spotify (fuck 'em, though, Neil is right). Favorite tracks: "Woodstock", "Country Girl", "Almost Cut My Hair", "Carry On"
Great vocals, harmonies, guitar solos, drumming, and beautifully mixed.
The result of throwing four geniuses in a studio together. This is the very definition of a supergroup. A band of talented musicians whose names extend beyond the bands they were once a part of, where each member has major contributions in the album, and none of which is lacking. Stills and Young carried Buffalo Springfield... their songs were always the strongest. Crosby was always my favorite Byrd after McGuinn. And although I don't know much about Nash alone, I loved the hits of the Hollies so much I was once disappointed they never had a consistent album. Here we have a collection of masterpieces, hit after the next. They're all very strong songwriters, vocalists, and instrumentalists. I love how this album rotates through all 4 of them. On both sides you have a song written and primarily sung by each member, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses. Nash writes the melodic pop hits you sing around the campfire. Young probably has the best written songs, they sound like solo material but with the ever pleasing harmonic back vocals. Yet, they're not out of place. Stills has the most colorful songs... strong forward vocalist, his composition skills in roots genres are best showcased in his later album Manassas. All three of his songs are amazing, and props to Mitchell for writing "Woodstock," I wouldn't have been able to tell without looking it up. Crosby has the most dramatic songs, the instrumentals are incredibly rich and ever-changing, like proggy folk. All of these songs could be star tracks on their own. The only track I don't think is perfect is the closing "Everybody I Love You"... it's merely superb. Pop folk doesn't get much better that this. The harmonious vocals is something I always strive to find in other music, and only then could I only compare them to the standards of these guys.
Отличная старая музыка
I’m so addicted with this album. Wonderful folk-rock songs with legendary people.
Um grande álbum! Me surpreendeu. O vocais são muito bem trabalhados!
A real good
one of the greatest American albums of all time.
I know and love this album well, but I'm always struck by the vocal harmonies of CSN/CSNY, and this album is a great example.
My heart skipped a beat when I saw this photo. I had the original leather bound cover (remember?) purchased proudly with the earnings from my newspaper route down at our local Peaches Records and Tapes. I wanted nothing more than to grow my hair long and wear that beautiful fringe jacket that David Crosby often wore, but my parents had different ideas about how their children should look. They were Nixon supporters. I haven’t listened to 'Déjà Vu' from beginning to end in a long time. But I played it so often it’s embedded in my memory. I was more curious if it still resonated with my heart. The answer is yes. Both for the glorious music but also for the spirit. Dylan prophesied a hard rain coming in 1963, and by 1970 he was already seeking shelter from the storm. CSNY filled the void, took up the mantle, like Elisha following Elijah. But this is another subject for another time. Back to the matter at hand. There were a couple of new things that surfaced for me during this particular listen, the first being that Neil Young is not really so much an equal partner with CSN on 'Déjà Vu' as he is a special guest on a few tracks. I couldn’t detect any Neil at all on the first two tracks, finally some guitar playing on the third. And then, of course, his own composition, ‘Helpless,’ and ending side one with his searing guitar solo on ‘Woodstock.’ But when side two opened with the title track, seemingly Neil had again taken five, and didn’t come back until the second to last song, another of his own compositions, ‘Country Girl.’ And he’s heard clearly on guitar rockin it up on the finale, ‘Everybody I Love You.’ Perhaps this is revealing of Neil’s divided commitment between his own solo stuff (which would ultimately triumph) and this super group. Truthfully (and I say this as a fan who thinks Neil sits at the right hand of only the Beatles), I don’t think CSN really needed Y. He certainly didn’t them, and ‘After The Gold Rush,’ ‘Harvest,’ ‘On The Beach,’ and the rest of his couple of dozen LPs following are proof. Even the cover photo features CSN in a perfect triangle, and faces up and illuminated; whereas Neil is on the furthest fringe, head bowed and darkened. Too Sergeant Pepper? And secondly, in addition to these songs being written mostly about the weal and woe of human relationships, might they also be referencing, if even subconsciously, the state of the baby boomer generation at that time, still very much in the midst of anti-war and civil rights demonstrations but losing the optimism that so permeated the summer of love three years before? Could not ‘Carry On,’ for example- an encouragement to keep struggling for love and not succumbing to despair following a breakup- also be heard as a call to the younger generation for the same resilience against the unjust, ruling status quo? ‘Teach Your Children’ becomes an appeal to both generations (young and old), both political parties, to learn to love one another. David Crosby pleading on ‘Almost Cut My Hair’ to not give in to fear as we figure out where to go from here as a country? Neil Young’s ‘place in north Ontario’ mirroring the distress of their American neighbors to the south? And ‘Woodstock’ speaks for itself, including the line ‘bomber death planes riding shotgun in the sky, turning into butterflies above the nation.’ I’ve always heard bomber jet planes, and had to stop the recording and listen again. In Joni Mitchell’s original lyrics, she just sing ‘bombers.’ I wonder which of the quartet added the word death? Side two opens with Crosby’s ponderings about ‘what’s going on under the ground? The anti-war underground movement? ‘Our House,’ a delightful song about hearth and home, has a hint of melancholy because that innocence Graham Nash is so wanting to hold onto is, on a national level, rapidly slipping away. ‘4 + 20’ finds Stephen Stills in such despair over his loss (of a lover), or perhaps the loss of actual lives both abroad in southeast Asia and also in the embittered civil rights battlefields of America’s deep south, that he ends the song wishing that his ‘life would simply cease.’ Neil’s ‘Country Girl,’ an invitation to leave the city and the other guy, and come to the country and be with me… might the other guy be Uncle Sam? And in the grand finale, ‘Everybody I Love You,’ when the whole gang fervently sings ‘You expect for me to love you when you hate yourself, my friend,’ to whom are they addressing, one American or the whole country? Again, I’ve been listening to this LP, off and on, for over 50 years, and am very familiar with the material. Or I thought I was. Funny how you can sometimes hear a song like ‘Teach Your Children Well,’ for years, and still, sometimes, hear something new. There’s no doubt it’s a good song. it’s just not one of my favorites, at least partly due to its popularity. I’ve simply heard it played too much. And so, by the time Nash begins the final verse I’ve already emotionally moved on to the next track with Crosby almost cutting his hair for cryin’ out loud! But on this particular listen for this review, I was reading the lyrics as if for the first time- Nash’s appeal at the end of the song to all Americans, young and old, hawks and doves, to trust in the power of love to affect reconciliation; or as the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr said so famously, ‘Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend’: ‘And you of the tender years can’t (possibly) know the fears that your elders grew by. And, so, please help (and not hurt) them with your youth. They seek the truth (like you/we do) before they can die.’ (Italics are mine) Musically, what can I add? You’ve got Crosby singing both his heart and angelic voice out on ‘Almost Cut My Hair,’ Nash’s high register, and slightly British accent throughout, not to mention his underrated song writing talent, both Stills and Young’s unique lead guitar playing (two great tastes that go great together.) But please don’t let the famous quartet overshadow the workingman drumming of Dallas Taylor, and most especially, the incredible touch of Greg Reeves, playing bass parts that rival Paul McCartney’s own melodic, creative roaming. And of course, Jerry Garcia famously drops right in and sits right down at pedal steel on ‘Teach.’ Sure, CSNY are all old and fat (except for the fountain of youth Graham Nash), and sometimes cantankerous and crotchety and such, now. But if you just could have heard them then, if but for a brief moment… Ah, that’s a déjà vu I would welcome today ‘… with all of you.’
Great album! Some very familiar songs on there.
O e of the earliest slums zi remember hearing and zi loved it from the moment I heard it, especially Neil Youngest Helpless. But every song has a special place for me. 5 🌟
I listened to it one go and let it wash over me and transport me somewhere else. Beautiful harmonies.
The original supergroup justifies their existence.
24k gold, one of if not the first vinyls I remember purchasing. Bless up
One of my all-time favorite.
Love the harmonies and classic guitar.
Subtle but beautiful
Good to have to listen to this album as I've not heard it in a long time. Still exceptional.
Full of songs l knew but didn't know they were from this album.
Very much enjoyed this one. Reminded me a little of Fleetwood Mac, or perhaps Fleet Foxes. Great songwriting, harmonised vocals
Thank God I've still got the free Apple Music trial.. What an album, what a supergroup. Our House, Helpless, so much stunning writing. And yes Neil Young's stays just on the right side of 'grating'.
Really really good. Love the harmonies, the melodies, and the instrumentation. My favorite songs are: Almost Cut My Hair, and Deja Vu. I still don't love Neil Young's voice, but I like it with the rest of the band. I much prefer Crosby's voice, and it turns out the two songs I like to most on the album were written by him too.
A masterpiece! Great energy; great instrumentation; great creativity.
So in love. I grew up with all of these musicians and at least some of the songs, so they already had a special place in my heart.
Folk rock Juggernaut
I get CSN&Y and CSI:NY confused way too often.
It's quite amazing that this album was recorded in such a disjointed fashion. How did they get those beautiful harmonies without singing together? It just shows their genius. I'm assuming that Stills was the conductor, he is one of the true geniuses of modern music. The addition of Young takes them to another level. While none of the songs reached the transcendent heights of Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, they still were a level above anything released at the time. Except for the excitement that was happening on the heavier spectrum, of course.
This is simply marvelous.
fucking amazing, 10/10
Beaucoup de talent sur un même album, et ca parait. Chacun y amène ca touche et ca nous donne un album très bien fait qui s'écoute bien du début à la fin. Almost Cut my Hair, Helpless, Our house, Woodstock, que du classique ! 5
Neil Young makes it a 5, otherwise it’d be a 3.
Carry On muito boa. Helpless com certeza foi copiada em Knockin' On Heaven's Door do Guns. 4:20 bem boa também
What a great combination of singer songwriters and performers. Good tunes all interesting to listen to and possibly sing along with. A classic of its time and informative of what influence it had on the future.
Absolutely fantastic collection of songs, such depth in the lyrics and these voices together blended so harmoniously. Superb!
Thought it was great! Favorites were Deja Vu, Our House, Country Girl
heard this one many times Very good album, rocks hard addition of young pushes guitar to the front even the over played songs, our house, children still play well love woodstock, almost cut my hair, carry on pretty much a classic, not a 'bad' song on the 'bum would buy used at $10 (heard too many times)
Harmonies don’t get better than this
A classic especially if I could listen to all of the songs
Great album. Classic sound with intriguing lyrics. “Teach Your Children” and “Helpless” are wonderful songs that have made my favorite lists now.
I fucking love this album
An amazing album!
Wow! Wow wow wow. That's all I can think to say right now. Amazing album. Loved the vocals and feel of the entire thing. I will be coming back to this.
Impossible to separate this music from where it sits so deeply in my marrow. CSN harmonies are those against which I judge all others. Almost Cut My Hair, Teach Your Children, Helpless, Woodstock, and Our House are songs I've been humming while I do the dishes for the last few decades.
One of the greatest albums of all time by an amazing coterie of blockbuster musicians. Still holds up and blows the mind nearly 50 years later.
heard at least half of this album constantly on classic rock stations lmao. bizarre to finally hear it again. its weird i feel like for a lot of the 60s and 70s the most acclaimed stuff tended to be rly popular too. this albums pretty good but a little inconsistent. some more good early 70s folky shit. carry on never hit me that hard. our house might be my fav song here i was a little suprised people dont like it as much. amazing song the rest of the songs that got played a ton are good too. not huge on some of the deep cuts since i heard so much of this already and the songs kinda burned in and out of my conscious mind i guess i got .... deja vu .... listening to this album. eh? ehhhh?????????????????????
Connor: I thought it was OK, it felt cool in a hippie way but not a genre I'm super familiar with
Gets sappy at times (Teach Your Children) and the addition of Neil Young isn't always strictly a positive (Helpless), but they're legends for a reason, and they pulled out some great ones for this collaboration. Of course, their best offering comes courtesy of Joni Mitchell. Best track: Woodstock
Dude could sing!
Ещё один альбом из серии «То, что я бы никогда не послушал сам», но, кажется, в этом и суть таких списков. Альбом очень приятно и легко слушать. Не возникает ощущения, что приходится себя заставлять, как это часто бывает, когда я слушаю что-то для расширения музыкального кругозора. Однако, в очередной раз я понимаю, что вряд ли вернусь к Deja Vu.
I love most of this album, but I freaking hate Neil Young
Good folk music
Embarrassingly only knew of 'Our House' from this album, which is far from the best track. The whole album is so sweet. Instantly a new favourite from the era.
Good album but would have preferred more songs of them all together like the last two songs of the album
Favorites: Teach Your Children, Helpless Carry on: great “Wah” guitar tone - 0.75 Teach Your Children: perfect folksy/country vibe - 1 Almost Cut My Hair: premise stupid, great guitar - 0.5 Helpless: Guitar seems to sing along with Neil Young. Beautiful. - 1 Woodstock: feels like I’m right there back in the 70’s - 0.75 Deja Vu: intro is annoying. Start to like it at the 1 min mark - 0.5 Our House: Piano coupled with the harmonies is beautiful - 1 4 + 20: Wish it was longer - 1 Country Girl: too much going on, here - 0.25 Everybody I Love You: Epic conclusion - 0.75 Rating - Composite of each individual song score - 7.5/10
Good vibes. Nice and simple. Liked the sound
Great through my headphones. Preferred some songs to others- some were slightly too country for me
Yeah really good
Great album - a throwback to the 1970's with a Woodstock vibe. Includes a tribute(?) to Joni Mitchell (Our House).
Enjoyed this WAY more than I thought I would
Some weak tracks but also some classics
Pretty good. What the Fleet Foxes are trying to sound like on some tracks.
It was a delightful blend of classic rock and folk...I hadn't heard of them before but will defo listen again.
Overblown. Oversold. Boomer BS. Our House is classic and the best song on the album.
I remember this one from my childhood. Brings back fond memories
Their rock songs are definitely better than their country ones. Almost Cut My Hair is a frightening prospect.
This one was pleasant. I liked it pretty well, but I don’t feel a need to download it.
A classic I haven't heard in full. Definitely something my mom and dad would love
i have no idea why i like "almost cut my hair" so much... maybe it is the "let my freak flag fly" lyric. though it is a bit dated, there is enough strong songs on the album, and no outright misses that make this an enjoyable listen.
Déjà Vu is the second studio album by Crosby, Stills & Nash, and their first as a quartet with Neil Young. Fun album!
Chunky and divine, if a little too "pure".
Simply amazes me how the four come together as one. It’s a shame that as a millennial, I can never truly appreciate the cultural impact they had at that time.
4/5 estrelas O álbum flui muito bem; bom de ouvir enquanto trabalho. Descobri que já conhecia e gostava de umas duas músicas do álbum.
Fint album dette. Fungerer def best med Neil Young. Merkelig at det går an å lage en virkelig bra sang om å klippe håret.
Never listened to a full CSNY album before and I really enjoyed it.
This was a difficult one to rate for me. I recognize the huge historical significance that this early super group has wrought, but some songs with the Glorious Harmonies, in particular Carry on just grate on me. There are a lot of standout songs though like Almost cut my hair and all the Neil Young songs that pull it way up.
Harmonious to the core. Very enjoyable for a Sunday morning listen. The dog is the only one on the album cover not named!
Love it, Carry On packs a punch to kick this album off. Great harmonies. Great musicians.
Folk pop muy bueno. Le pongo 4 estrellas en lugar de 5 porque resulta un poco monótono.
This album has a "sixties anthems" feel to it. The glittering harmonies remind me of their Woodstock performance. It's a very different style and no one has sounded like that before or since. The fact that there are 4 songwriters guarantees variety. I really like the Neil Young contributions (and Joni's). The title track wanders a bit and "Almost Cut My Hair" shouldn't have made the cut, so to speak
Really enjoyed this and will listen again
Harmonies excellent! Musically very good album, sit around with mates in a park as the sun sets style
Really good album
Gewoon fijne muziek om op de achtergrond te hebben. Fijne stemmen en instrumenten.

Stills grooves. Neil mopes. Crosby psychs. My man Nash agape loves. Perfect record except Country Girl, which for some reason gets a dramatic dirge/organ treatment. I love that Crosby has turned into a notorious shit-talker in his old age. That there's a massive feud among legendary classic rock musicians that 50 years later is still burning hot and completely irrelevant. Neil Young: "Crosby should write an introspective book: ‘Why People Won’t Talk to Me Anymore.’ He made a lot of great music for a long time. I don’t know what happened with David. I got nothing to say. I love Stephen. I love Graham. If a reunion happens, it would be a surprise. I won’t close the door on anything. I can hold a grudge with the best of them but only if there’s a reason for it.” Graham Nash: “I don’t like David Crosby right now. He’s been awful for me the last two years, just fucking awful. I’ve been there and saved his fucking ass for 45 years, and he treated me like shit. You can’t do that to me. You can do it for a day or so, until I think you’re going to come around. When it goes on longer, and I keep getting nasty emails from him, I’m done. Fuck you. David has ripped the heart out of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.” David Crosby: "Kanye you disgusting piece of shit for doing that to Laura Nyros music and then spewing your incredibly dumb trash talk over it". Mellow out fellas. Listen to your own records from 50 years ago. A
An Americana classic, though some of the single vocals have not aged well.
Very good. I find some of the singing a tad annoying but it doesn't stop me liking this a lot. A vinyl pick up, without question.
Absolutely gorgeous, I especially liked the song about Neil Youngs hair. A strong 4, close to a 5.
I would listen to this again and I will check out their other albums.
I enjoyed revisiting this album. It's been a few years. 4 star
A brilliant album from start to finish. Wonderful songwriting and musicianship.
Some gems on there.
My parents played this album all the time when I was a kid. This literally feels like my childhood. While listening to it I'm starting to realize how much my parents wanted to be hippies and how having us probably harshed their mellow. I do hate lap steel guitar though. Our house feels so good to listen to. This is a great album though. Just different enough but just the same enough. The Harmonies are mind blowing. The guitar sounds are incredible.
Приятная, расслабляющая музыка. Запомнилась песня Helpless
Teach your children well... to listen to this CSNY album.
Really enjoyed this one. Lots I didn't know were their songs.
Although perhaps not as great as some of the other efforts (both together and apart) put out by the folk rock Gods, this album shows even at the most contentious moments between them, they are still light years ahead of anyone else. Favorite Song: Almost Cut My Hair
Lo sentivo parecchio intorno ai 20 anni, ma comunque mi concentravo su pochi pezzi. In particolare sono sempre stato in fissa con 4 + 20 che in effetti rimane una grande canzone. Riascoltarlo dopo tutti questi anni me lo ha fatto apprezzare di più. Me lo ricordo come un album molto folk west coast e invece c'ha un sacco di influenze inaspettate, anche molto diverse da pezzo a pezzo e molte sonorità sono ancora abbastanza moderne cosa che m'ha stupito. Bello! Pezzi che m'hanno colpito: Carry On Deja Vu Our house 4 + 20 Country Girl
Hippy shit. Also, #1 road trip album.
Enjoyable Folk Rock with a touch of psychadelic.
A key album in the West Coast genre - part hippie, part psychedelic, part singer-songwriter. Includes the gorgeous Helpless.
Been a while since I've listened to this one, but still holds up.
Mellow, great in the sunshine. Harmonies shine some good lyrics and some twee ones.
These guys are good
An undoubtedly strong album from the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young era (probably the strongest from this line-up) that shows classic harmonizing vocals and soft-hearted lyrics. This album is the ideal short and sweet listen.
Can’t complain. Classic.
There's a lot more to this album than I thought there was going to be... I expected it to be straight down the line country folk, and there's definitely bits of that here like on Teach Your Children. But a lot of the album grooves and rocks; Woodstock is a rock n roll banger, Almost Cut My Hair and Carry On are heavy and groovy, and Our House is whimsical and fun... Deju Vu is the highlight though. It's almost jazzy in its acapella verse vocals and epicly psychedelic on the slowed down, mellowed out choruses. Easily the best supergroup album I've listened to through this website.
Oh no, they've metastasized. What was once three folk men has become six, doubling like the heads of the Hydra. This is really great though, I thoroughly enjoyed this. Again, great vocal harmonies, and some notably impressive instrumental performances, especially in the guitar and bass. Favorite tracks: Our House, Carry On, Teach Your Children, Almost Cut My Hair. Album art: Very rustic. As noted above, the boys have doubled and gained a dog. This is starting to look like the plot of THE THING. 4/5
Great album….great tunes…. Great harmony…. Awesome !!!!
This is a nice album to sit back with a chilled whiskey in a nice chair and have a good listen. Favorite Tracks: "Woodstock" "Our House" "Teach Your Children"
Didn’t expect to love it, but expected to like it. Beat my expectations for sure.
A decent mix of classic rock and folk
The harmonies always blow me away. Sometimes the song writing veers too far into a country sound I don’t enjoy as much.
Our house. Underwhelming.
Our house is certified. Een zeer mooi rustig rock album
Classic country rock album by some real heavy-weights. Beautiful harmonies and searing guitar solos - shame they could never keep it together for very long. Best Tracks: Carry On; Helpless; Country Girl
Bluesy, rocky, harmonization, southern rock. Hippie bent
Some good ones here.
I really feel like this is a 3.5 for me, but I am going to be generous and round up. I enjoyed listening to it in full, even though ive heard these songs my whole life, still, I would not consider myself a fan.
kæmpe champs alle sammen, lidt countrisk
Some lovely tunes on here and a lot of songs that I didn’t know they had done, however some twee as well
