Critic Reviews for Troubadours
An infectiously fond look at a mellow moment in rock history.
Watching the warmly nostalgic "Troubadours" is like going to a reunion of old friends. You're so happy to see them again that you are willing to forgive whatever lapses and flaws there are in the experience.
In the end, as another talking head points out, "the music always wins." And it did -- by a landslide.
A key weakness of the documentary is that it doesn't do enough to refute the charges long leveled at the Laurel Canyon league by music critics.
Audience Reviews for Troubadours
It is frustrating to realize how little we learn from this superficial (and sadly conventional) documentary, as it drifts unfocussedly from topic to topic without delving far enough into any of them and cannot even explain why the music critics disliked those singers so much.
Compelled me to dig out my old Carol King and Joni Mitchell albums. Required viewing for fans of the 70's singer/songwriter era.
