I have a few NY albums, but not this one. I know it's highly thought of...

Highly overrated more like, all the more so cos he pulled it out of sheer embarrassment over the heart-on-sleeve, woe-is-me lyrics.
It's good, but it's whiney as all fuck and not a patch on the likes of Everybody Knows This is Nowhere.

bought this years ago but haven't listened in ages. Its not on spotify and I just checked my iPod and it ain't there either. I'll try the youtube link but I'll get it back on my iPod over the weekend.

'For the Turnstiles' is on of my favorite Neil Young songs so looking forward to giving this a few spins again.

Kind of surprised its the first NY album to show up here.

I prefer After the Goldrush and Tonight's the Night. Think there's a couple of duds on this. Revolution Blues is awesome though.

I don't think he made a bad album in the 70s (though Tonight's the Night is probably the one I play least). This one really hammers home for me, great mix of styles and terrific lyrics ("The world is turning, I hope it don't turn away"). Album cover is cool too, wish I had it on LP where the parasol pattern is printed on the inside of the sleeve.
