Neil Young

Post by March2Fuzz » Fri Dec 23, 2005 8:04 am

Im really getting into this dude. At first, i couldnt stand his wailling and boring guitar work, until i checked out "Harvest". Its amazingly beautiful - every song is perfect. 'Out on the weekend', 'harvest', 'the needle and the damage done' (about former 'Crazy Horse' guitarist dying from Heroin OD). Then i heared Zuma and On the Beach which are equilly fantastic...so fucking amazingly laid back and beautiful. its music for relaxing to with large quantaties of spliffage. And at the moment, im really loving After the Gold Rush. Theres a lot of great country influenced songs that just give loads of images of the trees and mountains and all that stuff, i love it. Does anyone else like his work?? I dont really know too much about his later stuff.....judging from the odd songs from his latter days, iii.....i think it might just SUCK.

I love Neil Young, the old stuff mostly. I don't have a lot of the new stuff. After the Gold Rush is just killer, imo. Harvest is beautiful, too. Do you have any Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young? They created some beautiful harmonies together. Deja Vu and 4-Way Street (double live album) are great to start with.

Get Rust Never Sleeps and Live Rust if you like the more electric stuff. Those albums rule. Comes A Time also is a sweet album.

Also, get Decade, a double album.

The Greendale CD is pretty cool, too. It's a CD of his Greendale tour from last year. It's a little different music-wise and quite political, but very good, imo. I went to the show last year and it was terrific.

I don't have any Buffalo Springfield, but I know the songs I have heard were really good. Not sure what to recommend, though.

dude...you cant really call all his stuff grunge. U can call him a strong influence to grunge, but not a part of the diry, ripped flannel grunge sound....Lisen to his old stuff and see what i mean lol :)

I heard only one his song - Rocking In The Free World. But I like better Pearl Jam's version, because I didn't like Neil Young's vocal. But I think I'll try to listed to him more, half of music I love now didn't interested me when I first heard it.
Keep On Rockin` In The Free World!

Neils great! As far as Buffalo Springfield goes, yeah there is sopme great stuff. Check out Mr. Soul. Its really 60's sounding but also pretty grungy for the 60's. Its classic Neil...

Anyone cool enough to have worked with DEVO when they still meant something is A-Ok with me.
I love rock 'n' roll, so put another dime in the jukebox, baby.

Neil Young-Godfather of Grunge?!(i read that somewhere) don't agree with that...i only have harvest and i don't like it.c'mon,it's not even grunge,maybe that re-ac-tor album is great,but i haven't heard it.don't know what's the big fuzz about him?however,godfather-NO WAY
