5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected, 21 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hawks & Doves (Audio CD)
Although I'm a huge fan of early 70s Neil Young, I'd always been under the impression (from other reviews etc) that the quality of his albums dropped off in the 80s, so had avoided anything after the Live Rust era.
I recently heard a bit of Hawks and Doves by chance and instantly knew I needed to have it in my collection.

Its a short album, only 9 songs long and is split distinctly between what would have been side 1 and side 2 on a vinyl lp.
Side 1 - slow, simple melody acoustic songs like Neil does best. My favourite being 'Lost in Space' - even with some slightly odd lyrics.
Side 2 - up tempo, country tinged singalong songs the likes of 'Union Man'. These songs seem pretty political about the state of the US in the early 80s but I don't know much about that, I just know they've got great hooks!

Highly recommended.
