AllMusic Review by

Unlike previous albums bearing CSN somewhere in the title, CSN 2012 is not a studio album: it is a live set capturing the formidable trio on their 2012 tour. It is an unabashed stroll with CSN peppering their standards with the occasional cover -- Bob Dylan's “Girl from the North Country” -- and a few newer tunes. At times, signs of age are evident -- there are certain high harmonies they can no longer hit, Stills is particularly gravelly -- but the crack team of pros help patch up potholes, keeping things smooth and easy. This live set was primarily intended as a home video release, so it’s perhaps best appreciated as a DVD or BluRay, but in any form it’s warm, friendly nostalgia.
