Man Alive! (2005)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Aug 09, 2005; Lead Performance: Stephen Stills; Genre: Rock

His glory days are long gone, his voice now an unpaved gravel road. Yet for what it's worth, Stephen Stills' first solo disc (called Man Alive!) since 1991 has range and high spots: the career remembrance '''Round the Bend'' (with Neil Young adding guitar sparks), the Ray Charles-style ''Ole Man Trouble,'' the country blues ''Piece of Me.'' But keep in mind that parts of the ambitious ''Spanish Suite,'' with Herbie Hancock, are over 25 years old.
