10 Songs, 39 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Neil Young’s first album of the new millennium is a sweet, rootsy affair that both harkens back to his beginnings and finally delivers songs that had been brewing for decades. The folky “Razor Love” is a gorgeous, unhurried classic that dates back to the early ‘80s, while even more upbeat numbers like “Buffalo Springfield Again” come wrapped in pastoral piano notes and pedal steel, making the whole album sound like a warm summer evening.

This is Neil's most underated acoustic record!

I loved it right out of the gate the first time i played it. As far as his acoustic records are concerned this is hands down the best one. It works well because he's older & wiser & he keeps good company with the likes of Harris, Ronstadt, Keltner & Keith.

Neil's last good album?

I have a soft spot for this album, which is very pleasant to listen to. I got to see Neil Young tour this album and came to really enjoy the songs. Not a surprise that a few songs such as the title track date back to earlier times because they are quite good. Unfortunately, I think this was probably the last good Neil Young album - I really dislike anything he put out afterward.

My favorite album. Everything on here is pure and "so personal I can barely sing them", which Mr. Young stated in an interview about the album.
