Often overlooked as it comes between Young's career-defining 1977 three-LP set Decade and the decade-ending Rust Never Sleeps, Comes a Time is a gentle album that includes some of Young's most soft-spoken material. "Lotta Love" became a hit for Nicolette Larson, who adds harmonies throughout the album, and tracks such as "Look Out for My Love" and "Human Highway" are indicative of Young's divergent styles. With four producer credits, six studio listings, an orchestra, and Crazy Horse all on the same album, Comes a Time is an interesting pastiche of all the things that make Young tick. Lacking his usual conceptual thrust, you'll just have to settle for some great songs. --Rob O'Connor

I wrote in my review of the recently-released-on-CD _Old Ways_ that I liked it as well as I like _Comes a Time_. A minor correction: I think _Comes a Time_ still has a slight edge.
So that you know where I'm coming from: if I were asked to name Neil Young's very best album ever, I'd dither between _Tonight's the Night_ and _On the Beach_. But by and large, my favorite stuff to listen to over and over is his acoustic material. (Not exclusively, but overall.)
That means my favorite 'repeater' albums are _After the Goldrush_, _Harvest_, the acoustic 'sides' of _Rust Never Sleeps_ and _Hawks and Doves_, _Old Ways_, _Harvest Moon_, _Silver and Gold_, occasional songs from his other albums (e.g. 'Ambulance Blues' from _On the Beach_), and this one. (Oh, and of course _Decade_, which is where you should start if you haven't listened to Neil before.)
On to _Comes a Time_ itself. I've had it since it was first released on vinyl; I liked it then and I like it now.
It's mostly straightforward country-inflected folk. For most of it Neil is accompanied by the 'Gone with the Wind Orchestra' (led by Grant Boatwright, whose last name is consistently misspelled in the liner notes; they also play on the acoustic side of _Rust Never Sleeps_). Crazy Horse sits on on two tracks, though: the haunting 'Look Out for My Love', and 'Lotta Love'. The latter was also a hit for the late Nicolette Larsen, who sings harmony with Neil on nearly every song on this release (but _not_ on 'Lotta Love'; apparently they knew she'd be releasing a version of her own).

There are people who would contend that 'Comes a Time' is Neil Young's finest work. While it is truly a beautiful collection of songs, what it lacks is a demonstration of Neil's versatility, something clearly established on works such as 'After the Goldrush' or 'Rust Never Sleeps'. Neil can rock, and Neil can psychedelicize (a word coined by The Chamber's Brothers, doncha' know...), but that's not what 'Comes a Time' is about. 'Comes a Time' is a country/folk album cast from the same mold as his best selling album, 'Harvest', but superior to 'Harvest in two respects:
1) Young is more mature, as a composer, as a musician, and most importantly, as a person. He is for instance, able to bring in the 'Gone With the Wind Orchestra' without allowing his music to be overwhelmed by it, as 'There's a World' and 'A Man Needs a Maid' were on 'Harvest'. There are many subtle nuances in the musicianship that lend depth and texture to many of the compositions, beginning with the very first waves of his pick over his guitar strings on the opening cut, 'Goin' Back'. And lyrics such as "In my new life I'm travelin' light, eyes wide open for the next move, I can't go wrong till I get right, but I'm not falling back in the same groove" from 'Already One' show that Neil had exorcised many of the demons that had tormented him since the death of friend Danny Whitten, and his divorce from actress Carrie Snodgress earlier in the decade.
2) Many of the songs on this album are as fragile and delicate as a pile of pick-up sticks, but Young is able to convey strength and conviction through their gentleness. He's killing us softly with his song. While 'Harvest' will most likely bring you down, 'Comes a Time' will lift you up.

Format: Audio CD
Unlike other albums in the Young cannon, such as 'Hawks & Doves' or 'Old Ways', this is perhaps Young's best outing into country-folk-rock stylings. The orchestral arrangments which were perhaps a little too overblown on 'Harvest' are more consistent, and the addition of several accoutic guitar players helps create an extrodinary wall of sound. Stand out material includes the opening 'Goin' Back,' which sets the mood perfectly, and the energetic title track and 'Field Of Opportunity' are boistered by a funky fiddle accompniment. 'Already One' is a beautiful ballad with the harmonies of Nicolette Larson. The two Crazy Horse related tracks are the best songs - 'Look Out For My Love' 7 'Lotta Love' are superb pieces. Although sometimes ignored and overlooked, this album is one of Young's most underrated & perhaps, even one of his greatest.

Neil Young is a Canadian treasure & few would argue with that statement. To me he is a poet first because only a poet could write the body of work that he has written. Then encompass that with his unyielding ability as a musician. You would think with those factors in mind that he couldn't get much better but he does as a humanitarian, social activist whom without his songs in the late 60's and early 70's to bring a light to certain injustices in the U.S. at that time along with other artists Bob Dylan, Arlo Gutrie, Martin Luther King Jr. our world might have looked alot different than it does now in both countries. This CD some say is his best...but how can one measure that given the amount of CD's he has generated. All of his CD's give us something in musicianship to take joy & comfort in. The songs I liked on this CD are:

1.Goin Back: The acoustical guitar intro on this song is so good. It is simplistic in nature (at least to the layperson) but it so embodies the lyrics in this song. I still marvel at how well he writes. Many critics in the past have remarked on how his voice wasn't his strongest asset but I would argue that. His vocals always emit either the perfect angst or the sweetest softest tone depending on the storytelling that the song contains. On this track his song is so soft & beautiful. Nice background accompaniment with the female singer on this track; they suit one anothers voices. I could just keep hearing him play the guitar on this track.

2.Comes A Time: This is a definite homeage to country music. Neil tends to drift in the genre field either playing some of the heaviest rock songs, country or folk depending on I guess what he wanted to say at each given time.
