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.

Essential album, for me it is the greatest piece of introspection put to tape. Some incredible emotion and vulnerable storytelling told through simple, stunning arrangements. In the scheme of things I prefer Dylan's work overall, but on a good day this surpasses his greatest records.

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).
