Neil's debut is not bad. I actually quite like certain aspects of it. Its clear that Neil Young wasn't yet sure about his image, sound, style at this point. As a result there is a lot of surprising Baroque folk, country sounds here. And even on some of the better tracks here, the orchestra, all weepy and at times over the top, undermines the general rugged grit of Neil Young's songs. Still, the strings sure are pretty!

Some of the songs here are actually excellent, such as "The Loner", "The Old Laughing Lady", etc. But boy, "The Loner" is amazing and rocks so hard! Then those fudging strings elbow in and I'm just not feeling it.

Anyway, I don't wanna stay on this album here too long. I'll just say there was some slight slivers of the potential greatness of solo Neil on this album. But, really it is a big surprise how quickly he shed the bs and made a dozen staright goodies. All he had to do was nix the string arrangements of Nitschke and bring his beats of beast bands into the studio and the legend of Neil Young would be born.

Neil young's debut album is a little uncertain. Still, some good songs in, the old laughing lady, and, the loner. Obviously Young would go on to make some stunning records, but this one is a little bit forgetful. Still, not bad.
