    Lighthouse sees Crosby at his most stripped-back; rather than attempting to update his sound to suit the times it feels as if he has distilled it, leaving something akin to Essence Of Crosby, despite being crafted in cahoots with Michael League of Snarky Puppy.

    A collection of wonderful stripped-down folk rock. [Dec 2016, p.106]

    One of this unlikely old master's most hauntingly satisfying works. [Dec 2016, p.90]

    The songs aren’t easily digestible but, as he winds into the final stages of his life, they are honest, intricate, personal and above all, uniquely the work of David Crosby.

    Lighthouse is an unusually robust late-career move radiating inventive musicianship, relaxed self-assurance and gently cantankerous autumnal wisdom.

    Lighthouse is lovely, but the lack of attention to detail blunts some of the writing and playing craft on offer.

    The pleasure of Lighthouse is that it’s best appreciated as mood music: with its buoyant acoustic guitars and murmured harmonies, it casts a light spell.
