Illegal Stills by Stephen Stills
Released: Jan 1976
Label: Columbia
Rock critics railed against Stills' mid-'70s albums, claiming the guy was writing terrible tunes. But he was never a great songwriter. The biggest difference between Illegal Stills and early albums such as Stephen Stills and Manassas is actually in the production. The record is not earthy and organic; it's trebly and extremely polished, like a Doobie Brothers album. Does that mean Illegal Stills is a dud? Not if you dig Latin-tinged soft rock. Stills even croons in Spanish on "No Me Niegas."
