Neil Young is most definitely a favourite of mine. C'mon people, post some songs.

Here's another classic. In fact, seems it's his only no. 1 hit in the US

One of my favorite artists.

Anyone listened to his new album with Crazy Horse (Psychedelic Pill)?

Loe this one, it would also go in the "songs that give you the chills" thread for me. I'm a sucker for sweet harmonies.

Debut album out now, listen to the whole thing on Soundcloud here ...

Everybody Knows This is Nowhere is one of my favorite albums! I've gotten into the "God of Grunge" Neil Young within the last month and so.

I still smile when I see that title of his: "God of Grunge" :)

I'm planning to get Mirror Ball, the album he did with Pearl Jam, After the Gold Rush, and Freedom.

And I did read it, too. Last summer. I have to say Neil's way of writing really surprised me. I was expecting a kind of detailed book with lots of information, pictures and old stories revisited. But the book is, in fact, very present and kind of superficial by first impressions. I'm not saying this in a bad way, although it might sound like that... His way of writing is just so different to what I've been used to when reading books about artists. It took me about 3/4 of the book to really understand what it's about and then it kind of hit me.. I'm not reading about an artist, I'm getting to know him as a person. This changed my view of the book and the rest of it was quite enjoyable. So if you buy this one, take it as it is, read slow, don't search for details, don't worry about it if you're not familiar with the names he's mentioning - that's not important. Just let go and read. After I finished with the book, I realized I had just learned a lot about the person. He's quite cautious about what he writes, and there are no "fat secrets", but he reveals a lot also by what he chooses to tell and what he chooses to leave out.

Sounds like an interesting read :) Alas, right now I'm in the process of getting rid of as much stuff as possible, so buying new stuff would be kinda counterproductive! :P

Oh, he did mention that one of his favourite albums, or perhaps the biggest favourite of them all, is 1978's Comes A Time.
That did not surprise me. It is beautiful and serene, and I love it too.

I've become intrigued by his 1982 Trans album.

I mean the idea itself of Neil Young making a synth album is just so far out there... Plus, on a Cracked article on "unusual career moves by musicians" (or something like that) Trans was also cited as utter shite and I just love to love what other people deem shite :P On the other hand, I was raised on synth pop (among other things), so I do like some of that stuff really and unironically.

Haha, six years later I finally put on of that album's songs on one of my mixes :) and through the "Listening" thread I also started getting into his catalogue more :D
