Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

By 1975 Young had written some of the most enduring anthems in rock history. But from the slow, tension-building piano opening of "Tonight's the Night", he downshifts into darkness and Crazy Horse's folk-country melodies take on a guttural hum that would eventually speak to generations of punk and grunge musicians. Inspired by the overdose deaths of two of Young's friends, roadie Bruce Berry and guitarist Danny Whitten, the title track (and its closing reprise) is a hypnotic cry of "why?" Even the relative party songs, "Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown" and "Roll Another Number", fit the album's bus-to-nowhere resignation. --Steve Knopper

I`ve heard this shambolically tight rock masterpiece sober, drunk, and most points inbetween. I`ve heard it on LP, on CD, and on the advice of a very alternative therapist. I`ve heard it when in the mood and not in the mood. I`ve listened to it happy, sad, strung out, depressed, overjoyed, tired, lit up, lovelorn and loved-up.
It`s one of the greatest rock albums ever made, of that I am in no doubt. I`ll bet Dylan (who`s fond of NY) loved it to death.
I`m playing it, for the umpteenth time, as I write, and it sounds like all the rock albums ever made rolled into one. It certainly `contains` Harvest, Goldrush, Time Fades Away and On The Beach in its sometimes tenuous embrace.
There isn`t a dud track, nothing that should embarrass or frighten any horses, plenty of raw soulfulness, a spontaneous feel to most of it, little piano trills where you least expect them, the fiery catchy Downtown in the middle of a lot of troubled angst, and the whole thing sounds like it`s been around since the dawn of time - Greil Marcus`s `old weird America` come to call with an insistent urgency that won`t be denied.
Neil plays plenty of his trademark intense spidery guitar, he has a tremendous band with him - including the wonderful Nils Lofgren (a too-often unsung hero of thoughtful American soul-rock) on guitar & piano.
I wouldn`t be so crazy as to single out particular songs. This is one record that lives in the world as an entity, one track seeming to segue into the next. For example, when the unhurried Speakin` Out goes right into the relatively jaunty World On A String, it all feels just right! After the welcome rough magic of Downtown, the downhome ramblings of Mellow My Mind are exactly what the sawbones ordered.

"Tonight's the Night" was one of the first few Neil Young albums I bought, almost 10 years ago. At the time I was well into his rock stuff - "Like a Hurricane", "Hey Hey My My" and the like - as well as his acoustic stuff... but this seemed to come from nowhere. On reading the sleeve notes, I was concerned by how little Neil actually plays guitar on the album. He seems to mostly play harp and piano. There's a fair bit of steel guitar too, which I wasn't too optimistic about.

It's difficult thinking back to that time now, since Neil was a big inspiration to me, and I knew a lot of his music, and a lot about him, but there's so much more I know now... I guess all this is leading up to me saying that despite how different this record sounded to the things I liked about Neil Young, I loved it all the more for it, and now it's just a natural and fitting part of the whole. It's a beautiful, tender, and yet raw and jagged album. It's dark, yet playful. The arrangements sooth, while the lyrics and the voices bristle with emotion.

When people who don't know much about Neil Young ask me to recommend an album... well, it's a difficult task because there's so much to consider - nevertheless, I always recommend this one as one of his best, though I know it's not musically representative of the man. And I know that some people who aren't used to this kind of roughness are going to be repelled. However, it is emotionally representative of him, and if a person can open up his mind enough, forget all the autotune of modern records, forget the slick production; he can love this record all the more for it's wailing, out of tune vocals and it's lumbering rhythms.

for me this is one of the greatest albums of the last 30 years, it has not dated one iota as many of the records of the time have. Tired Eyes is the most unearthly song about drugs ever written and every song has moments of sublime beauty. to those who bemoan the rough edges, you're missing the point.

A truly 5 star album. There is so much depth and sadness - Tonight's The Night is really heart-moving. There is a sense that Young is in another world. It sounds like this album was recorded/created almost in a daze, and for me that's its real genius. Real feelings are timeless.

I was at a Neil Young gig in Bristol early seventies when he played this album in its entirity. The album had not even been released and Neil was coming off the back of big success with Harvest and After the Gold Rush and the whole CSNY thing.

The gig was so different to what was expected, gone was the sensitive mellow country singer looking for his heart of gold. This was rough and raw, dark sunglasses and leather. He got a lot of booing that night and if I recall his record company complained about the sub standard nature of the material on the album.

Having just bought this album again, it is an absolute classic and has some of his most memorable tracks and lyrics.

Not an album for people new to Mr Young, try one of his greatest hits compilations, but once you are into him get into this. I am playing it again some 40 years on and it is outstanding material.

Often the album most appreciated by hardcore Neil Young fans, this is the one that most embodies Neil's occasional ideal of recording in one take, regardless of how good the take is. This gives the listener a unique glimpse of the seedy underbelly, as one Amazon reviewer aptly described it, and for many it is a most agreeable sight. Personally I think he got the balance about right with 'After The Goldrush', the production was simple and unfussy, but everything was in place. Wheras this sounds like he's making the statement that this is a better way of doing things because it produces something more authentic. The recording and mixing of the album is given more than its fair share of coverage in Young's biography 'Shakey'; reading between the lines you can't help suspecting he secretly harboured doubts about the finished product.

Recorded in the aftermath of the tragic loss of two of his inner circle, Tonight is a depairing expression of grief, and Neil didn't try to wrap everything up in poetry as songwriters tend to do on such occasions. The explicit nature of the words on songs like the title track is a fitting tribute to Bruce Berry and Danny Whitten, as is 'Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown', on which Danny takes the lead vocal surprisingly well. Other than this, I don't know of any Neil Young solo album where a lead vocal has been sung by anyone other than Neil himself.

The songs themselves are a suprisingly expansive collection, from good old rock 'n' roll to the usual harmonica based country folk with a heavy dose of bleary eyed blues. 'Borrowed Tune' is a good example of the album's mood; famously lifted from the Rolling Stones song 'Lady Jane'. (why didn't they sue him?
