Crosby, Stills & Nash: 'CSN 2012 (Live)'

Time hasn't been kind on CSN, judging by their first live performance in 20 years. Here the trio (each twice inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for their collective work on CSN, The Hollies, and Buffalo Springfield) sounds tired, unrehearsed, and poorly recorded. The band and the songs are there, but the magical harmonies are gone. Let us all hope by the time they play at the Majestic Aug. 17 ($46-$126, 8pm, 224 E Houston, ticketmaster.com) they're much closer to their glory days of the late '60s and early '70s.
