Graham Nash's fourth solo album and first in a decade reveals the songwriting ability and musical insight that earned Crosby, Stills, and Nash legendary status. Nash comes full circle on Songs for Survivors, which relates back to his 1971 solo debut, Songs for Beginners. Survivors is steeped in universal tales, from loss ("Lost Another One") to overcoming personal struggles ("Blizzard of Lies"), with the support of soft guitar rhythms, banjo, dark keyboard notes, and drums that provide varied tempos. Love, pain, and evolution coalesce on "The Chelsea Hotel," wherein Nash sings, "We've been here before/Searching for truth with perpetual youth that will be gone/ In the blink of an eye passing us by." Overall, Survivors provides a relaxing folk sound combined with lyrical depth and perception.—DP
