Stephen Stills Stephen Stills Rock Music CD Review
Stephen Stills has released him most recent CD entitled Stephen Stills.
I wish it weren’t the case but, it’s not everyday that I get a CD from an artist that I can just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. There is usually a song or two that I just can’t force myself to get through. Not at all the case with Stephen Stills. Every track is enjoyable and was pretty easy for me to listen to from start to finish.
Stephen Stills has a pleasantly varied, mix of 10 tracks that are very well written songs by this clearly talented artist. Most of the songs display a lot of the kind emotion that makes for a really great listen. Seemingly drawing from what I can only imagine are him own real life experiences. At different points touching on the most real emotions like love, and the pain of failed relationships can certainly be heard.
Listen to and I think you’ll agree that the song choices are excellent, the production is outstanding and Stephen Stills is clearly in top form.
While this entire CD is outstanding some of my favorites are track 2 – Do For The Others, track 4 – Old Times Good Times, and track 10 – We Are Not Helpless
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore […as in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 1 – Love The One You’re With. Great track!
