5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Harvest, 11 April 2008
This review is from: Harvest (Audio CD)
I'm sure many people waited eagerly for this release and I was certainly one of them. The fear was that it would be a huge disappointment after Goldrush - well it wasn't. Harvest has taken on almost a mythical feel over the years.

Many consider it his best work and certainly it met with critical acclaim and is still talked of today. When Young releases a low key, tuneful album it is always described as "The New Harvest" and the composer also references the album many times in his subsequent offerings.

It was more progressive than Goldrush. To me the songs aren't quite so effective but there is no denying the power and beauty of an album that once again contained some outstanding music with the likes of "Harvest", "A Man Needs a Maid" "Heart of Gold" (I can hear you singing it now and two songs with much stronger messages "Old Man" and a foray into drug culture "The Needle and the Damage Done."

The only question on the lips of Young fans were "where does he go from here and can he produce a trio of essential albums?"

Good points. I think 'Harvest' just edges 'Goldrush', but once you reach this level of excellence, how is anything better than anything else? I'll keep an eye on your reviews in future. Cheers.

Thanks Mark. I entirely agree. Harvest and Goldrush both have so many things going for them that it's difficult to separate them.
