What an album. My personal favourite Neil Young record, and there's some competition with all the classics he's released.
Favourite songs: After The Gold Rush, Birds, Don't Let It Bring You Down, Tell Me Why, Only Love Can Break Your Heart

If you like "Southern man" you should check his previous album "Everybody knows...". If you prefer the shorter ballads like the opener check "Harvest". If you like a little of both tainted with blues check "On the beach", anyway, don't only listen to this album, which contains a few classics on the first half but I find has a relatively weak second half and in general doesn't show the full potential of this wonderful artist.

From Sandrof1969 02/15/2018 20:06
"After the goldrush" è, per me, il biglietto da visita di Neil Young. C'è qui di lui, se non già tutto, almeno molto: le ballate pianistiche, le cavalcate elettriche, i pezzi acustici. Ha fatto storia, è tra i suoi dischi più amati e forse da qualcuno pure odiati ( Lynyrd Skynyrd… ). Per tutto questo, per le melodie che contiene, per l'equilibrio dei suoni, pure per le imperfezioni ( perché Neil Young è tutto fuorchè perfetto ), "After the goldrush" è il suo miglior disco da solista.

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!

Album filled with wonderful ballads about heartbreak plus and probably Neil's most cohesive record. Southern Man is the only loud guitar rock track, but I doesn't detract from the overall feel because it's just so damn good.

Birds and I Believe In You are such underrated gems and in my opinion much better than Only Love Can Break Your Heart.
