All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Due in part to personnel problems which saw Bruce Palmer and Neil Young in and out of the group, Buffalo Springfield's second album did not have as unified an approach as their debut. Yet it doesn't suffer for that in the least -- indeed, the group continued to make major strides in both their songwriting and arranging, and this record stands as their greatest triumph.

Yet it doesn't suffer for that in the least -- indeed, the group continued to make major strides in both their songwriting and arranging, and this record stands as their greatest triumph. Stephen Stills' "Bluebird" and "Rock & Roll Woman" were masterful folk-rockers that should have been big hits although they did manage to become small ones; his lesser-known contributions "Hung Upside Down" and the jazz-flavored "Everydays" were also first-rate. Young contributed the Rolling Stones-derived "Mr. Soul," as well as the brilliant "Expecting to Fly" and "Broken Arrow," both of which employed lush psychedelic textures and brooding, surrealistic lyrics that stretched rock conventions to their breaking point. Richie Furay who had not written any of the songs on the debut takes tentative songwriting steps with three compositions, although only "A Child's Claim to Fame," with its memorable dobro hooks by James Burton, meets the standards of the material by Stills and Young; the cut also anticipates the country-rock direction of Furay's post-Springfield band, Poco. Although a slightly uneven record that did not feature the entire band on several cuts, the high points were so high and plentiful that its classic status cannot be denied.

    Why Buffalo Springfield didn't click.

    BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD AGAIN is the definitive Buffalo Springfield album.
    Back in late 1966 when I first heard Buffalo Springfield's first single, "Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing" I assumed it would go Top 10 nationally and maybe even reach #1. Well it didn't!
    It didn't even crack Billboard's Hot 100. This I could not understand for this Neil Young composed tune was a classic and way ahead of it's time.
    After their next single, "For What It's Worth" went all the way up to #7 on Billboard I felt Buffalo Springfield could do no wrong.
    Unfortunately Atco Records decided to push "Bluebird" instead of it's "B" side, "Mr. Soul". As creative as "Bluebird" tried to be it wasn't the side to plug. It stalled in the lower 50s nationally. "Mr. Soul" could have easily cracked the Top 20.
    Next came what many feel was the best Buffalo Springfield song ever: "Rock N' Roll Woman". It did really well; so what does Atco Records do? They follow it with a syrupy, whining operatic piece sung by Neil Young, "Expecting To Fly". Well it didn't fly!
    Atco Records made several mistakes in their handling of Buffalo Springfield. The biggest was after "For What It's Worth" soared to #7 nationally, they waited 6 long months to service radio stations with a follow-up single. '60s radio was of the moment. Waiting half a year to follow a hit single is disastrous. Also their choice of singles was off mark.
    Buffalo Springfield had the sound and song writing skills to be on a paar with The Beatles or The Rolling Stones. Sadly they were passed over causing it's members to part ways......way too soon.
