Great album by Neil. After a break from studio albums of a few years, he returned with this offering, which is mellow 'Harvest' style Neil, with harmonica blasts and steel guitar licks. Great selection of songs in a 'down home' fashion. Really enjoyed this one.

soothing for the edgy. on the edge. or over the edge . one of the best of neil young's.

unsuitable for psychiatrists and cynics. just fantastic. what's sentimental about it?, but if you don't like neil young , listen to somethingelse , if u like x factor stuff don't listen to someone who plays the harmonica.

music and lyrics are very evocative
hearts of stone just won't get it. great value and quality from used, don't dismiss

gorgeous and cry if u want.

I hadn't listened to this album before buying it and it is definitely one of Neil's best acoustic albums.

I happily tell anyone who will listen that, for my money, this is Neil's last great album. All albums since Silver & Gold have been mediocre, and ALMOST every album prior has been essential listening. Unfortunately something seems to have happened after Silver and Gold which meant that Neil could produce music which is at best 'quite nice'. So, for me at least, there are two Neils, 20th century and 21st century, and the 20th century one will always win out.

Neil Young likes to sort his output by style. The grunge goes into one CD then the softer almost country material goes onto the next. This CD is the softer side of Neil Young.
If you think that means that it sounds like Harvest Moon you'd be wrong. One of Young's greatest talents is that he can take one of his stylistic forms and move it on. These songs are very simple and also beautiful and delicate. Listening to "Daddy Went Walkin'" from this album and "Old King" from Harvest Moon is a perfect example of how Neil Young takes a certain style and develops it further.
The title track crystallises the mood of this album perfectly. Neil's voice is so clear. It's hard to understand that this is the same voice that can also deliver his powerful grunge style. It's also amazing that he has kept his voice so well over the years.
This is not the best, or most accessible of Neil's gentler work. After the Goldrush, Harvest and Harvest Moon all rank above this but, if you like those, you will be captivated by this CD.

"Silver + Gold" contains Neil Young's basic song setups from years past. Speckled with innocuous, repititous lyrics, there are few surprises. However, there are some true stand-out tracks. "The Great Divide" and "Buffalo Springfield" are inventive upbeat tracks, the latter a song lamenting about Neil Young's late sixties rock band. "Horseshoe Man" is a heart-breaking ballad, one of Young's best. The remaining songs seems like Neil Young 'rehash', but it's not that bad. Thanks to veteran drummer Jim Keltner, the songs contain fresh beats, but unfortunately, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt are sorely underused as backup singers. Not much new, but still good Neil Young magic.
