His masterpiece. I love this album! One of the definitive if not the definitive singer/songwriter album of the 70's.

I can't get over how she set me free
0h, oh, lonesome me...

Is there another album that more embodies the sound of the 70s? Back when bands' lyrics were repeated by the faithful like sacred truths. Back when albums seemed larger than life carrying their own mythology and album covers were gazed upon for hours as if they held some divine truth. Back when bands were fronted by prophets or gods to indulge us common folk with their truths & power. Neil Young was always more the prophet than the god despite his considerable guitar prowess. Fitting that such a prophet should make the perfect album of love flickering out.

Favorite tracks: Lonesome Blues, Don't let It Bring You Down

Aside: Simply one of the best breakup albums ever!

ATGR is a good example of why Young tends to be overpraised. Don't get me wrong, he is worthy of nearly all the tremendous influencing his name has incurred, and rightfully put out many, many brilliantly composed pieces. But his albums as a whole tend to be shaky, with ruggedly elegant songwriting rarely taking center stage, over mainly simple piano-n-riff-rock, albeit with a tenderness rarely seen in conjunction with a distortion pedal.

A little too much is said of this Neil Young album . It actually drives me crazy . Harvest is a much better album
