Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

After labouring in Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Neil Young finally hit perfect pitch--if his endearing off-centre whine can be called "perfect"--with his third album. He's equally passionate with trippy riddles (has anybody figured out what "We've got mother nature on the run" means in the title track?) and pointed protest (after 30 years of rock-radio overplay, "Southern Man" still rings with truth about redneck racism). His creaky ensemble, including pianist Jack Nitzsche and rotating members of Crazy Horse, transforms ramshackle country and folk songs into soulful hippie hymns. --Steve Knopper

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly one of Neil Young's classics May 31 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't exactly consider myself a big Neil Young fan, I'm not the kind of person who would buy every album with his name on it (especially many of the albums he done in the 1980s, such as Landing on Water), but After the Gold Rush, his third album (second with Crazy Horse) is truly deserving of classic status. This album has been with me most of my life, thanks to my parents owning a copy. This album also premiered a certain 17 year old by the name of Nils Lofgren, on piano. This album has many different styles from acoustic ballads, to rockers, to short singalongs. The album starts off with "Tell Me Why", which is a truly great acoustic piece. The title track is a piano-oriented ballad with an enviromental theme concerning the new decade (the 1970s, that is). "Only Love Can Break Your Heat" is not a cover of the Gene Pitney song, but another Neil Young original, in this case, a piano-oriented ballad. I don't think I need to mention the epic "Southern Man" as it's the song that receives plenty of FM radio airplay. The song obviously gave Lynyrd Skynyrd their response song four years later (1974) with "Sweet Home Alabama". Side one of the old vinyl ends with a nice, short, singalong cut called "Till the Morning Comes". Side two (of the LP) features a cover of Don Gibson's "Oh Lonesome Me", plus another nice ballad with "Don't Let It Bring You Down", plus a totally overlooked, but great rocker with "When You Dance You Can Really Love". There are two songs that don't seem to do a lot for me, that is "Birds" and "I Believe in You". The album closes off with another great singalong with "Cripple Creek Ferry", which is very much in the vein of "Till the Morning Comes". This album really takes me back to that bygone era of 1970 (even though I wasn't alive then). This album is a no brainer, if you're a Neil Young fan, get this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing tops this April 19 2004
By Joel
Format:Audio CD
The song "After the Goldrush" was 1st introduced to my ears while listening to the radio in my dad's pickup truck when I was 9 years old. Twelve years later my feelings for that album have not wavered. I have seen reviews by Rolling Stone magazine that say that this album was released prematurely. Upon reading Neil Young's biography and listening to many of his other albums, you will discover that whatever Neil releases is EXACTLY what he wants people to hear.
After the Goldrush is an album with mixed emotions. I am not a professional reviewer, but I know that the album brings out emotions of both reflection and love. It's an album of great contrast as well. Some songs like "Tell Me Why" and "Cripple Creek Ferry" are sort of light hearted and uplifting while the songs "Don't Let It Bring You Down" and "Oh Lonesome Me"...I think the names speak for themselves.
Do yourself a favor and get this album. You will never forget it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Gold Rush Moments April 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
I must admit that I'm not very familiar with the extensive Neil Young catalouge. I have been presented to his music many times, and liked a lot of what I heard; but I somehow never really got "into" it. I liked his contributions to Buffalo Springfield very much; his songs were generally by far the strongest there.
I decided to take a chance on one of his earliest solo album, and coincidentially I chose "After the Gold Rush" which could be achieved very cheap at that time.
I recognized tracks like "Southern Man" and "Don't Let it Bring You Down" but the rest of the album I had never really noticed.
"Tell Me Why", which opens the album, is song in the same vein as his world-wide hit record "Heart of Gold" - a good song, but not as good as the hit record.
Excitment begins with the title track, great tune and a highlight.
The waltzy "Only Love Can Break" is also great. "Southern Man" is probably best known from the Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young "Fout Way Street"; I think I prefer their version to this one.
His cover version of Don Gibson's "Oh Lonesome Me" is very personal, and musically far from the orginal.
"Don't Let it Bring You Down" is simply great!
"Birds" is also a great track - very moving!
I find the rest of the album is a little lame; "When You Dance You Can Really Love" has a good guitar-riff; but otherwise it does not do much for me. "I Believe in You" and "Cripple Creek Ferry" are just okay.
All in all this is a very good album; maybe not as outstanding as some reviers seem to think. Unfortunately is has a rather short playing time, but that's typical of album from that period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, heartbreaking folk rock April 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
Before I start my review on this classic album I should point out that 2 of the 11 songs are little minute-long filler tracks, one is a cover of an old country song, and one is a hard rocking track about DANCING. DANCING! On a Neil Young record! Maybe I miss the hidden irony, but to me it just sounds ridiculous when Neil sings lines such as "When you dance, oh, oh I can really love!" But don't worry about any of that, because the rest of the songs on After the Gold Rush are some of the most heartbreaking, affecting and poignant songs ever put to tape. Beautiful harmonies, restrained acoustic arrangements and moving lyrics are this album's bread and butter.
This writing of this album was supposedly influenced by a Dean Stockwell screenplay called, believe it or not, "After the Gold Rush"; I find that hard to believe considering the highly personal nature of this album. The theme seems to be falling OUT of love, and the introspection/self discovery/guilt that goes along with it. Songs like "Birds" and "I Believe in You" have to be the most eloquently written and emotional songs of dismissal I can think of. There are a few exceptions, however, most notably the bitter attack on southern bigotry that is "Southern Man". It features some of that manic Crazy Horse guitarwork and positively SEARING lyrics. "Now your crosses are burning fast", "I heard screaming and bullwhips cracking"! Brutal. At this point I should probably mention that the aforementioned song fragments and dance numbers aren't bad in any way, shape, or form. They're actually welcome respite from the heavy emotional tone of the rest of the numbers.

CD came in pretty quick but the front cover had two big cracks in it and it was a present for my mom so I wasn't very impressed with that.
