11 half good Neil Young albums

Len Read
 
Hawks & Doves
Hawks & Doves
"Opening four tracks culled from his stockpile are some of his best ever songs. The five recorded specifically for this album are jokes but I'm not laughing."
Life

"Two classics in Mideast Vacation & Inca Queen. Harsh production and ho-hum songs mar the rest."
Trans

"It's the vocoder songs that easily  triumph here. Should have been brave enough to release a whole album of them.."
This Note's For You
This Note's For You
"Was welcomed on release after wasted decade . Time reveals its weaknesses."
Broken Arrow

"Another case of first half good, second half bad. Inclusion of Interstate , a contemporary B side, would have made this a 4 star outing."
Mirror Ball

"Songs literally made up on the spot during jamming. Hits and misses. Many ideas should have been developed further. Half baked"
American Stars 'n' Bars

"Just for a change, first half almost all bad, the four that make up the second half , superb -- and not just for Hurricane."
Prairie Wind (CD Only)

"Some great tunes, some not so great. Warm , loving production masks several flaws."
Sleeps With Angels

"Cobain inspired but nevertheless patchy. Trans Am brilliantly atmospheric for example while supposedly epic Change Your Mind never ignites."
Neil Young

"Still finding his solo feet. Overblown production doesn't help but can't totally submerge classics like I've Been Waiting For You & The Loner."
Greendale [CD + DVD]

"Some amazing musical moments, particularly Be The Rain and Bandit. Other times the music can drag while the Greendale narrative in some songs can be wearing. Not one for an NY novice!"
