My 10 year old daughter Soma, at age 7, wanted to sing birds at her talent show. She never did, but every time she would try to sing it, it would almost make me cry cuz it was so pretty and sad to hear a seven-year-old voice sing it. Totally moving

If you weren't convinced of Neil's mastery after Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, then this will surely do the trick. Easily deserving of being seen among the best folk and songwriter albums ever conceived.

I've loved this album for years and years, and I don't see that changing any time soon. I'm not a massive fan of When You Dance, but the other songs all work really well. After the Gold Rush is my favourite Neil Young song, and Birds is beautiful as well (one of the best breakup songs I know).

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.
