All Music wrote: “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.”

Score: 4.5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Americana at its rockin’ best. Listening to the LP as I’m typing
now, it sounds as if they’re still going today, but under the name of Band Of Horses.
