Best Solo artists of the 1970s? Bowie, Stevie, Elton and Neil Young!

Acoustic half was good. Electric half was really good.

Side one is really good, but side two is majestic. One of the best album sides ever, up there with side 3 of the White Album (well, almost) or whatever you can name.

Stupisce che dopo un album che fu una delle vette artistiche di Neil Young ci siano state, per dieci anni, quasi solo rovinose cadute.

The first Neil Young album I listened to in full and it was great! Not a lot to say other than I enjoyed the listen.

In my opinion only Bowie recorded more classic albums in the 70's than Neil Young, I'd say Bowie won roughly 10-8. It could be argued between about 5 Neil Young albums which is best but I have always chosen this one, it has a bit of Dylan influence in so far as the first half is acoustic and the second half electric, the opposite way round to Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home.

Classic Neil Young album. Rust never sleeps, is half acoustic, half electric. Recorded mostly live it's a rollicking rock'n'roll record. Best of the first(acoustic)side is, my my,hey hey, thrasher, and, Pocahontas. Off the second(electric) side, best are, sail away, and, powderfinger. Rust never sleeps, would be Young's last album in a decade in which he produced many fine records, this is one of them. Raw and uncompromising.

Fine album though a little bit short of expectations. Some of the longer tracks are a bit sloppy, production so so. Not in the same league as ATGR, EKTIN and Tonight's the Night.

From Pekka
A memorable album. Something so punk, so deeply dark and touching guitar with great player. A new route to Neil Young to walk, and his hand. Not for standard country/countryrock lovers, but this kick me deeply. I gave 92/100 points to garveness to Neil Young, a way he left what his earlier has done, behind, an go straight without fear to new.
