Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On the Beach (Audio CD)
At last this is to be made available on Cd! All the time spent in collectors stores is over. This is one of Neil Young's greatest triumphs & certainly the best non crazy horse record. it forms a bridge between its contempoary albums Tonights the Night & Time fades away with the more commercial later 70s records Rust never sleeps et al.
It is hard to understand Young without this,as 'See the Sky about to rain' & 'Ambulance Blues' are wonderful fractured songs. Elsewhere he takes a jaundiced view of 70s LA. To comic affect in Revolution Blues
Even the sleeve shows the alienation of Young at this time. Whilst it may lack the pop touch of earlier & later works it remains a satisfying dark whole. In many ways its relationship to Harvest is similar to the darker desparate place of Springsteen's Darkness to the space of Born to Run.
Words cannot fully do justice to this album. but it it will epand your horizons.
