Just when the world at large was ready to write off these '60s legends, they turned around and knocked an album full of engaging, even inspiring tunes that brought back fond memories of their glory days. After years of internal strife, drug problems, and other famous rock star pitfalls, the trio had decidedly seen better days, but this was the album that seemed capable of turning it all around for them. Pay particular attention to the transcendent "Wasted on the Way," an unflinching look at the trials of the past brightened by an acceptance and ability to move forward. The sunny folk-pop of this tune and Stills' "Southern Cross," a song about self-realization and renewed inspiration, are the keys to DAYLIGHT AGAIN, which finds our heroes coming up for air after too much time spent in the spiritual shadows.
