Product Description

Amazon.ca

Opening with the methodical, hard-rocking "Cinnamon Girl"--still one of the singer/songwriter's most-shouted requests in concert--Young's second solo album introduces the cockeyed harmonies and sloppy, chiming guitars of Crazy Horse. His wide swings from soft-spoken country-folk ("Round & Round [It Won't Be Long]") to menacing metal (the punch line to "Down by the River" is "I shot my baby") indicate the multiple personalities in Young's future. His second album of 1969 broadcasts a sincere passion for the peace-and-love '60s (dig the long guitar solos) but also predicts the dark introspection of "Tonight's the Night". --Steve Knopper

I love many othe Neil Young albums ...... but not like this one, the classic of classics.
It is sooooo "rusty" and "raw" emotionally and musically and so "pure" from the heart.
The band is so tight, Neil;s voice on this still gives me goose bumps. The rawness that just cuts you up.
Cinnamon Girl - Opens up the album with those wonderous guitar. Tremendous power in them licks, from the gut. I can hear that song 1000 times in a row.
Then we have this country, folk stuff added with Cowgirl and Down By The River. Cowgirl my favorite and after years and years, never board of that long solo that kills with that unique power, passion and "roughness" of that solo tat is so interesting. So much emotional punch in that one.
This one must be up with those other albums that are the best of an era.
Yet, that sunofagun seems to be more appreciated now and more popular now than he was.
The Loosing end, that is about as good as Neil as ever Sounded.
It's so hard for me now
But I'll make it somehow,
Though I know I'll never be the same.
Won't you ever change your ways,
It's so hard to make love pay
When you're on the losing end,
And I feel that way again.
I love, love when the last part of the song when Neil get louder and end with a wonderful finishing "rough" country lick.
Round and Round, is to listen to late when camping in front of a fire. Those souful harmonies. Great words, great stuff.
There are not too many left of the great ledgends who are still out there creating. Everyone MUST here Alvin Lee in Tennesee and here the guitar master doing rockabilly with the guys that started it in Nashville. Best album of the year, so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love this cd May 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
I give this and "After the gold rush" four stars. They are Young's best albums and among my favorites in the classic rock category. "Cowgirl in the sand" and "Down by the river" are landmark songs that would create a new sound for rock & roll. "Cinnamon Girl" is a staple of classic rock in itself. My personal favorite songs on this album are "Everybody knows..." and "The losing end." Neil Young is a great songwriter and performer. Any fan of classic rock has an incomplete collection without this cd and "After the gold rush."

4.0 out of 5 stars Sends Me Away Jan. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
I feel the same way about this album as I do about AFTER THE GOLD RUSH. Three decades (and change) ago, this would've gotten a 5-star rating from me. But some songs don't endure, they don't stand the test of time, and smack of hippie self-indulgence. In particular, "The Losing End" is tedious. And "Round and Round" is, for me, an audio sedative.
But three tunes are standard bearers of classic rock radio: "Cowgirl in the Sand", "Down by the River", and "Cinnamon Girl". And for good reason--they ARE classics in the sense that their intensity and creativity set an example for later singer/songwriters, rock bands, and lead guitarists.
This was Young's first album with Crazy Horse, and the tightness of the playing, the way the band highlights Young, and Young highlights them leaves little wonder why these guys play and record together to this day (except for Crazy Horse's Danny Whitten who entered overdose heaven 30 years ago). While some reviewers have stated that they find "Cowgirl in the Sand" and "Down by the River" as being too long, I would counter, a la Mozart in "Amadeus", with "Which notes do you think should've been left out?" If anything, I think "Cinnamon Girl" is too short. In fact on Young's LIVE RUST (recorded ten years after this album) he repeated the final part ("Pa, send me money now...") and added a final guitar line. I recommend this album highly, in spite of the above-mentioned accoustic tunes. This is an album that will drag you "over the rainbows".

4.0 out of 5 stars "You see us together, chasing the moonlight..." March 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a big fan of most classic rock (music released before the new wave era) but this was given to me from my beloved so I could hear the original version of "Cinnamon Girl", which was later redone by Goth-Rock legends Type O Negative, and I was shocked at how much I enjoyed the album as a whole. 'Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere' is my first CD by Neil Young with Crazy Horse, whom I'm assuming are responsible for providing a slight bluegrass feel to some of the tunes, and I am very impressed. I admit, I'm not particularly wild about all of the songs but I do love the gentle ballad "Round & Round (It Won't Be Long)", the haunting cry of the violin on "Running Dry (Requiem For The Rockets)" (probably my favorite track), and "Cowgirl In The Sand", which centers its main focus on the guitar and drums rather than the voice, but without getting carried away. The intricacy of the melodies are fairly simple yet woven with a strong sense of depth and you can bet that I'll be checking out the rest of his works in the not-too-distant future. He sounds like an artist with a lot of talent just waiting for me to further explore. So yeah, I think this is a great place to start or to add to your growing Neil Young collection. And, for its time, the production isn't half bad either.
