Neil's smiling on the cover and it's easy to see why when you have a collection of songs this good. This is Young firmly in folk/country land, and I feel his most successful foray in that genre. Every song effortlessly wraps itself around your memory and it all sounds so easy with melodies and lyrics this strong. On Lotta Love and Look Out For My Love Neil is backed by a very laid-back Crazy Horse, and provide two of the album's highlights. Elsewhere he gracefully tackles the old folk standard Four Strong Winds and provides a standard of his own in the bouyant Comes A Time. The mood is low key, Neil sings of broken loves and lost souls and never once sounds like he's moping. This is such a soft, elegant record it's impossible to dislike. In Neil's pantheon of great albums it is often criminally neglected, so do yourself a favour.....

Gentle country/folk style songs crop up all over Neil Young's albums but often come across as the fluff between the hard stuff. Here though, Young devotes a whole album to the genre and the result is his best and most ignored collection of such material. 'Goin' Back' and 'Look Out For My Love' prove that he's at his most compelling in this style with plaintive and minor key melodies. Both of these songs linger. The title track they sandwich is by comparison a jaunty number, good but not so memorable. The rest of the album zigzags in a similar way. Lyrically, it's not so challenging. There are plenty of references to mountains, highways and, of course, love, but 'Comes A Time' is one of Neil Young's superior and most accessible albums.

Format: Audio CD
With this album, Neil Young returned to his roots. The jaunty title track is a great song, but not the only one here. I particularly enjoy Field of opportunity, of which I don't remember hearing a cover version, as well as Neil`s cover (the only one on this album) of Four strong winds (the sixties classic by Ian Tyson). Another great song is Motorcycle Mama, a duet with Nicolette Larson in which he mostly sings the choruses and she mostly sings the verses.

The opening track, Goin' back (Neil's own song, not to be confused with Dusty Springfield's hit) gets the album off to a great start. I'm not sure what it's about; looking at the lyrics, my first thought was that it could be about a volcanic eruption but I suspect that Neil may have written it about the consequences of war. Maybe it is deliberately ambiguous so that people can interpret it as they wish. Perhaps the pick of the tracks I haven't mentioned is Human highway, but this album is great from start to finish as far as I am concerned.

When Neil's albums are discussed, this album is not usually picked out as being one of his career highlights, but it' is definitely one of my favorite albums of his.

Unlike other albums in the Young cannon, such as 'Hawks & Doves' or 'Old Ways', this is perhaps Young's best outing into country-folk-rock stylings. The orchestral arrangments which were perhaps a little too overblown on 'Harvest' are more consistent, and the addition of several accoutic guitar players helps create an extrodinary wall of sound. Stand out material includes the opening 'Goin' Back,' which sets the mood perfectly, and the energetic title track and 'Field Of Opportunity' are boistered by a funky fiddle accompniment. 'Already One' is a beautiful ballad with the harmonies of Nicolette Larson. The two Crazy Horse related tracks are the best songs - 'Look Out For My Love' 7 'Lotta Love' are superb pieces. Although sometimes ignored and overlooked, this album is one of Young's most underrated & perhaps, even one of his greatest.

A beautiful laid back country -tinged album from Mr Young.the album opens with the haunting "Goin'back" with lovely harmony from Ms Larson (catch her on the NeilYoung DVD "Unplugged"
The title track will get the old toes tapping and my two favourite tracks on the album are with Crazy Horse,a subtle Horse "Look out for my love" boasts fine lyrics from Neil " I'm home again to you ,Babe,you know it makes me wonder,sitting in the quiet slipstream in the thunder " followd by the lovely "Lotta love",recorded on "Live Rust". The latter part of the album is high on the feel-good factor and the stand out is the optimistic "Field of Opportunity "In the field of opportunity,It's plowin' time again ""Motorcycle Mama " is a sort of slow,bluesy song with obscure lyrics to this one "Motorcycle Mama won't you lay your big spike down,I always get in trouble when you bring it around "I've never understood the lyric to that song,but yet again my I.Q. level is very low !!The album finishes with superb "Four strong Winds" with Neil's voice at It's most yearning !
This is a great,laid back album,best remembered for the harmonmy vocals of Nicolette Larson and the writing ability of Mr Young ,Neil is...smiling on the front cover !!!!!

Having not heard all the tracks the first time around it was something of an act of faith that I chose it. I wasn't disappointed, it's so evocative of an era; full of yearning and understated truths which work their way into the consciousness in an oddly powerful way. It is a fine mixture of lyricism, discord and determination ... it is now firmly embedded in both my C.D. ( I'm still struggling to replace original vinyl and tapes) collection and my psyche.
