One of Neil Young's greatest albums, after the gold rush, is a superb LP featuring some of Young's best compositions. The anti-pollution title track is one of his finest songs, both musically and lyrically. Elsewhere, there's, southern man, a song that would get Ronnie Van Zant so irate that he would write, sweet home Alabama, in response. There's the beautiful, only love can break your heart, and, birds, and the excellent, don't let it bring you down, as well as the lovely, I believe in you. There are a few throways in, 'til the morning comes, and, cripple creek ferry, still, after the gold rush, is a seventies classic. Superb.

A passionate and clean album with some heartbreaking lyrics. Neil has made one heck of an album. Best tracks are Southern Man, Tell Me Why and Don't Let It Bring You Down.

Neil Young uses all his special Youngian powers here (the voice, the raw guitars, the emotionally taut lyrics), while also keeping intact all the flavor of his CSNY collaborations. A front to back masterpiece, if ever there was one. In the 70s, about the only album that matches it song-for-passionate-song, is Joni Mitchell's Blue.

Arguably the best singer/songwriter album of the seventies. No mean feat.

This album is beautiful simplicity perfected. The songwriting is just so sturdy here. All you need is Young weaving melodies through his acoustic chords.
