Tell me about Neil Young

Sun Apr 24, 2011 12:41 pm

I only have one CD of Young's, and it's a greatest hits, but I was watching him on Sky Arts yesterday for a while (I had to go out) and realise this is someone's back catalogue that needs exploring.

This is from the program they were showing:

So, please make your recommendations!

One of rock's most talented and prolific artists. Lots of great material to explore.

For me he's one of those weird artists that I respect and like as a person but don't particularly enjoy that much. I admired very much that he kept his music tough into old age, and he kept abreast of contemporary music sounds for a long time. I very much enjoyed Mirror Ball his collaboration with Pearl Jam. He gave artists like Pearl Jam hope that they could record into middle age and keep the same aesthetic chose. I always thought Crosby, Stills and Nash were actually interesting when he worked with mostly because he brought that toughness to their sound, a toughness sorely lacking on anything else they ever did. I admire his way with an interview and his praise of many type of music. And I really admire his stance against the corporate influence on pop music from the 1980s until today.

For all that I wish he was a better singer. I wish that his lyrics weren't quite so preachy. I wish his way with a hook was more consistent.

I have a couple of albums, but if I have to choose just one, it must be "Harvest". It´s a incredible album.

I'm not sure if I am. I don't hold the album too highly... it didn't make the cut of essential albums in my previous post. The album was a bomb but I'm soft to 3 tracks on it.
