All in all, Departure is accomplished and masterful.
The material is bravely selected and boldly
performed. The recording is balanced and skillfully
produced, with lovely mixing and mastering.
Interpretations, like CSN’s “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes”
with Harvie’s bowed bass lines and Sheryl’s tactile
exploration, is one example, but there are many
equally wonderful examples on the record, all of
which deserve to be heard. This is major league
stuff, brilliant and beautiful.
