THIS MONTH, WE'RE delving back into the 45-year-strong back catalogue of a Canadian singer-songwriter whose music has oscillated from acoustic balladry to countrified rock, electronic experimentation to gnarly rockabilly, film soundtracks to anti-war polemic. But which Neil Young albums are the best? And why? What about 1969's hard-rocking Crazy Horse debut Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere or the following year's solo work After The Gold Rush? Then there's mega-hit Harvest and the mid-'70s Ditch Trilogy. Don't forget his late '70s run of albums - American Stars 'n Bars, Comes A Time, Rust Never Sleeps - and his '80s sonic adventures. What about the raging Ragged Glory and Sleeps With Angels or more recent releases such as Fork In The Road and Psychedelic Pill?
Tell us your choices and reasoning via the comments below. As ever, the best suggestions will appear in the How To Buy section of the next issue. Cheers!
