4.0 out of 5 stars 'Rock'n'Roll Will Never Die', 26 April 2008

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rust Never Sleeps (Audio CD)
'Rust Never Sleeps' is an intriguing,odd and at times excellent album with songs which must rank among Neil Young's finest.The album was recorded on the road during the 'Comes A Time' 1978 tour and it's a half acoustic,half electric affair.The majority of the tracks were either recorded in one take or live in concert but because the audience is omitted during the mix the album isn't 'live' but yearns to be.You will need to purchase the excellent 'Live Rust' to appreciate the actual tour concerts and includes four of the nine songs here.
'Rust Never Sleeps' however does contain some of Neil Young's strongest compositions.It begins with the acoustic 'My My Hey Hey' which is aimed at the music industry and 'Pocahontas' is one of Young's finest pieces of work,pitiful yet beautifully poignant,as is 'Ride My Lama' and 'Thrasher'.
Of the electric songs(Side Two to LP collecters)'Powderfinger' is simply extraordinary and one of Neil Young's strongest songs which ends with a blistering guitar solo.'Sedan Delivery' and 'Welfare Mothers' may have been written tongue-in-cheek but they are both excellent hard rocking tracks and blend in with the rest of the album.The grunge and distorted guitar of 'Hey Hey My My' ends the album in exhilirating style.
'Rust Never Sleeps' was written on the road and it may not shine as brightly as 'After The Goldrush','Zuma' or 'Freedom' but it is a fine album with some excellent songs-notably 'Powderfinger' and 'Pocahontas'.
