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 like to say I have at least 20 "favorite albums of all time" BUT, if pressed to choose just one, this is it. If you are a guitar hack like me, throw it on, and play along. Who doesn't want to play the riff from Cinnamon Girl or play a 30 minute lead for Down By The River while a buddy plays the simple but very cool chord progression. Neil still has it, too bad guys like Clapton have long ago lost it.
Anybody who likes; Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt, Steve Earle, John Hiatt, The Jayhawks, EARLY Wilco, Lucinda Williams, Giant Sand, Counting Crows, and any other comtempory folk rock band, better own this album...today.
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.Read more ›

Neil's best solo album in my opinion, best writing, performance overall but not by a long shot. He's made many great lp's including the relatively less known On The Beach. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Mr.Vinyl

This is my all time favorite Neil Young album. It holds a special place in my heart after seeing Neil Young perform much of this live around the time it was released. Read morePublished on March 15 2004 by Gary Nechvatal
With an artist like Neil Young, one can explore the question, "What is his best album?". As with The Beatles or The Stones, the possibilities are so generous that one is tempted... Read morePublished on Feb. 25 2004 by Don Schmittdiel
