The two hundred and sixth album: #206 David Crosby - If I Could Only Remember My Name

It's odd how this feels like this is another album of the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young supergroup and that this is David Crosby's debut solo album - reviewed as one of the best in its own right, but it's the link to the bigger group that stands out more clearly in my mind.

I do think there's more personality that comes through as you listen to the album. While there's a fair amount of folk rock in here, it's often infused with psychedelia in a way that the bigger group doesn't always have. It's not overdone, in the way that gets bothersome in other places, but it's more integrated into the folk sound, adding to the music rather than overtaking it. It creates a nice, listenable album, nothing that leaves as big of an impact on its own, but it feels you can put the album on at any point and listen to something pleasant, without any excess baggage. It's that friendly, folk rock explortation of the music while never getting bored in how it presents itself.
