Holden, you probably should reconsider your decision and make an exception with "Time Fades Away" and "Rust Never Sleeps." Those two albums, despite being recorded live (mostly, "Rust Never Sleeps" even includes some studio tracks), only include previously unreleased material. Agree with excluding the rest of the Neil Young live albums though...

Oh dear, Time Fades Away and Rust Never Sleeps should be here. They were new albums as much as any studio album (moreso than Hitchhiker being released in 2017, which by then came off as a retread). Rust Never Sleeps won the 1979 album of the year award from Rolling Stone, which has spent little if any time awarding what we normally call live albums in its lists.

(Oddly enough, when I looked up the Rolling Stone factoid again, one of the first Google results was an old Acclaimed Music post I made several years ago :shock:)

===================================================

Anyway, something before I make a proper albums & songs post...

At one time, I was all caught up with Neil Young, through Fork in the Road, but he keeps releasing albums like it's still the 1970s, and for a quarter of a century a lot of it has been tedious (and fights for elbow room with archival releases as part of his obsessive, uh, journey through the past).

A recommendation from most every Neil Young solo album (from the '80s-onward, the recommendations are sometimes relative; also, no soundtracks). Album/song of the decade in bold.

Neil Young: I've Been Waiting for You
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere: Cinnamon Girl

After the Gold Rush: Southern Man
Harvest: Words (Between the Lines of Age)
Time Fades Away: Don't Be Denied
On the Beach: Ambulance Blues
Tonight's the Night: Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown
Zuma: Don't Cry No Tears
American Stars 'n Bars: Like a Hurricane
Comes a Time: Lotta Love
Rust Never Sleeps: Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)

Hawks & Doves: Hawks & Doves
Re·ac·tor: Shots
Trans: Transformer Man
Everybody's Rockin': Wonderin'
Old Ways: Bound for Glory
Landing on Water: Weight of the World
Life: Inca Queen
This Note's for You: Coupe de Ville
Freedom: Rockin' in the Free World

Ragged Glory: Country Home
Harvest Moon: Harvest Moon
Sleeps with Angels: Driveby
Mirror Ball: Big Green Country
Broken Arrow: Big Time

Silver & Gold: Razor Love
Are You Passionate?: Are You Passionate
Greendale: Leave the Driving
Prairie Wind: No Wonder
Living with War: Living with War
Chrome Dreams II: Ordinary People
Fork in the Road: Just Singing a Song

(I haven't heard the 2010s-plus output as much, and am not in a rush to change that, but my favored tracks look something like this -- Le Noise: Peaceful Valley Boulevard ... Americana: Travel On ... Psychedelic Pill: Ramada Inn ... A Letter Home: Needle of Death ... Storytone: Who's Gonna Stand Up? ... The Monsanto Years: Big Box ... Peace Trail: Peace Trail ... Hitchhiker: n/a ... The Visitor: Stand Tall ... Colorado: Green Is Blue ... Homegrown: n/a)

Top non-album track or collaboration: Expecting to Fly

Least favorite song: T-Bone

Best-to-worst Neil Young decades:
1970s
1960s
1990s
1980s
2010s
2000s

I can't claim to be everyone but I would be in disbelief if someone didn't count Rust Never Sleeps as one of their favourite Neil Young albums or didn't consider it a 'proper' NY album just because it's part-live.

To echo all of what's been said above by greater authorities than me, RNS and Time Fades Away are entirely composed of original material and come across as more cohesive albums than, say, Homegrown, which has songs initially released on three earlier albums. Neither album is presented as live either (minimal crowd sound, no band interaction with the audience).

It's still your call and I'm sure we'll survive if you don't accept RNS & TFA but....please?
I just wanna live large and remain though...

Good call. I mean, hell, a good chunk of the Purple Rain album was live, but all of the songs were new.

Hi Holden,

Just a quick question...

Can we use songs from CSNY & Buffalo Springfield where Young is the main songwriter? I notice others have and if I can, that will change my list.

Madzong mentioned this above, so I’ll clarify - Buffalo Springfield songs are NOT allowed. Only albums/songs released by Neil Young are allowed. Songs released under other groups, like Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, are also not allowed. I’m unsure if any songs exist for Neil Young, but the only pseudo-exceptions to this is a Watch the Throne/Basement Tapes type scenario, where it is two artists releasing together

Madzong mentioned this above, so I’ll clarify - Buffalo Springfield songs are NOT allowed. Only albums/songs released by Neil Young are allowed. Songs released under other groups, like Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, are also not allowed. I’m unsure if any songs exist for Neil Young, but the only pseudo-exceptions to this is a Watch the Throne/Basement Tapes type scenario, where it is two artists releasing together
So, it's not ok to vote for Buffalo Springfield and CSNY Neil Young songs on "Decade"?

Yes. You are correct, these will not qualify.

Mmm, it seems that the Neil Young discography arise a lot of controversy. Some peculiar facts on his discography like releasing live albums with only new material or including his songs as part of bands on solo compilations (not only "Decade" but also "Journey Through the Past," "Neil Young Archives Vol 1" and "Greatest Hits") are giving Holden extra work about eligibility. In my case I've decided (well, in fact long before the controversy) to make two lists. The first list is selected from the complete discography including material released as part of bands.
The second list includes only material credited to Neil Young or Neil Young fronting a band (usually Neil Young & Crazy Horse) and it's the list Holden should use to count my votes. On this second list some of the songs were first released as part of bands but the position is based on the first released Neil Young SOLO version of the song. For instance, Buffalo Springfield's "Broken Arrow" is my #12 song on the global list but it falls to #49 based on the live version from the Live at Canterbury House released on 2008. And "Mr. Soul" disappears on the second list based on the "Trans" 1982 version. Hope this makes sense.



Albums:

1. Neil Young — After the Gold Rush (1970, my #22 album of all-time)
My favourite Neil Young album because it contains (almost) all the Neil Young past, present and future. We have Buffalo Springfield pop ("Only Love Can Break Your Heart"), C,S,N&Y harmonies ("Tell Me Why"), aching piano-ballads ("After the Gold Rush"), spectral country ("Oh Lonesome Me"), soft-rock ("Don't Let It Bring You Down") and furious rock with lengthy solos ("Southern Man"). And all that surprisingly cohesive and confessional. Who could ask for more to a bare 33 minutes of music?

2. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young — Déjà Vu (1970, #29) #3 of 1970
Laurel Canyon's peak. The perfect conjunction of four great songwriters in their sweetest moment in a perfect timing (the change of decade). Despite the album was recorded in scattered sessions with little physical coincidence of the four musicians, the exquisite vocal harmonies and the elaborated arrangements confer a notable cohesiveness. The A-side of the original vinyl is simply perfect and in the B-side stands out a Nash tune, "Our House," an exaltation of conjugal happiness.

3. Neil Young & Crazy Horse — Rust Never Sleeps (1979, #98)
Only Neil Young could jump so easily between generations, tying in the same line Elvis Presley and Johnny Rotten, without seeming out of step or opportunist. And he did it brilliantly, as shown on the album outstanding structure, every song features more instrumentation than the previous and the style evolves progressively from sparse country-folk to noisy garage-rock, with the same song on acoustic and electric versions as the album bookends. Beginning out of the blue and ending into the black.

4. Neil Young — Tonight's the Night (1975, #133)
The third step down on the Ditch Trilogy. Haunted by the phantoms of Danny Whitten and Bruce Berry (dead by heroin overdose on the previous months), Neil Young created one of the most imperfect albums ever (the raw and ragged singing and the sloppy and stoned playing is noticeable) but also one of the most desolate. In fact listening to some songs is almost painful (the display of pain when Young tries to reach the high notes on "Mellow My Mind" is almost obscene). Lying in the ditch.

5. Buffalo Springfield — Buffalo Springfield Again (1967, #157), #7 of 1967
A characteristic of Neil Young's style was simplicity, both his acoustic Folk or electric Rock featured straight structures and spare backing. But during his early days as part of Buffalo Springfield he was tempted by complex multi-part structures ("Broken Arrow") or orchestral arrangements ("Expecting to Fly"). Stephen Stills also contributed complex and brilliant songs like "Bluebird" and Richie Furay added his first country-pop gems like "A Child's Claim to Fame." California dreaming.

Songs:

1. Neil Young — Tired Eyes (1975, my #89 song of all time)
Probably one of the saddest songs ever recorded. And probably the first song of a new style, alt-country, that blossomed 20 years after. A creepy and ghostly country backing while Young recites with a stoned tone a dark story about a "heavy doper or (...) just a loser" with "bullet holes in his mirrors" that "tried to do his best but he could not." And when he sings he does with a fragile voice that puts a lump on your throat: "please take my advice, open up your tired eyes." Terrific. And terrifying.

2. Neil Young and Crazy Horse — Like a Hurricane (1977, #242)
This is the song I would use to explain to an extraterrestrial how Neil Young & Crazy Horse sound. Simple but evocative lyrics, a chord progression based on the Andalusian cadence, a brilliant melody with timeless qualities, a quite slow tempo for a rock song, basic instrumentation (bass-drums-guitar-keyboard), bright Californian vocal harmonies, enough space for Young sublime and lengthy soloing and mainly the intense and powerful playing, with the musicians having a blast from the very first second.

3. Neil Young & Crazy Horse — Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black) (1979)
Pure rock'n'roll history. Even mythology. One of the most famous quotes of rock lyrics comes from this song (well, in fact from the acoustic version): "It's better to burn out than to fade away." It was then harshly criticized by John Lennon for worshiping death. Young's answer: "Rock'n'roll doesn't look that far ahead. Rock'n'roll is right now. What's happening right this second. Is it bright? Or is it dim because it's waiting for tomorrow?" 15 years later Kurt Cobain wrote the quote on his suicide note.

4. Neil Young — Only Love Can Break Your Heart (1970)
Young's career always balanced between spare folk and furious rock but he was also a pop wizard, as showcased on this song.

5. Neil Young — Rockin' in the Free World (1989)
Neil Young centred his career and shook his confusion of the 1980s with this powerful and combative anthem. Keep on rocking!

Neil Young solo list (Holden, please use this one)



Albums:

1. After the Gold Rush (1970, my #22 album of all-time)
My favourite Neil Young album because it contains (almost) all the Neil Young past, present and future. We have Buffalo Springfield pop ("Only Love Can Break Your Heart"), C,S,N&Y harmonies ("Tell Me Why"), aching piano-ballads ("After the Gold Rush"), spectral country ("Oh Lonesome Me"), soft-rock ("Don't Let It Bring You Down") and furious rock with lengthy solos ("Southern Man"). And all that surprisingly cohesive and confessional. Who could ask for more to a bare 33 minutes of music?

2. Rust Never Sleeps (1979, #98)
Only Neil Young could jump so easily between generations, tying in the same line Elvis Presley and Johnny Rotten, without seeming out of step or opportunist. And he did it brilliantly, as shown on the album outstanding structure, every song features more instrumentation than the previous and the style evolves progressively from sparse country-folk to noisy garage-rock, with the same song on acoustic and electric versions as the album bookends. Beginning out of the blue and ending into the black.

3. Tonight's the Night (1975, #133)
The third step down on the Ditch Trilogy. Haunted by the phantoms of Danny Whitten and Bruce Berry (dead by heroin overdose on the previous months), Neil Young created one of the most imperfect albums ever (the raw and ragged singing and the sloppy and stoned playing is noticeable) but also one of the most desolate. In fact listening to some songs is almost painful (the display of pain when Young tries to reach the high notes on "Mellow My Mind" is almost obscene). Lying in the ditch.

4. Harvest (1972)
Commonly considered his country album barely half of the songs fall into that, there are also rockers and orchestral pieces.

5. Ragged Glory (1990)
For the first grunge album (before "Nevermind" and "Ten") Neil made his typical album with Crazy Horse but louder and dirtier.

Re-posting with numbers for Rust Never Sleeps and Time Fades Away (also, I somehow forgot about Life).

Kinda funny that Honorio and I both had the same worst album pick, out of so many albums. But Fork in the Road typified the sort of album that a legend makes when there is so little left to prove that they don't even seem to notice when they're not trying anymore.

Albums:
1 | Neil Young
2 | Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
3 | Sleeps with Angels
4 | American Stars n' Bars
5 | Harvest Moon
6 | Zuma
7 | Tonight's the Night
8 | Comes a Time
9 | Freedom
10 | Harvest
11 | Trans
12 | Rust Never Sleeps
13 | Life
14 | After the Gold Rush
15 | Landing on Water
16 | The Monsanto Years
17 | Mirror Ball
18 | Time Fades Away
19 | Storytone
20 | This Note's for You

22 | Ragged Glory
23 | A Letter Home
24 | Re·ac·tor
25 | Old Ways
26 | Silver & Gold
27 | Le Noise
28 | Broken Arrow
29 | Living with War
30 | Hawks & Doves
31 | Are You Passionate?
32 | Prairie Wind
33 | Chrome Dreams II
34 | Everybody's Rockin'
35 | Greendale
36 | Fork in the Road

I’m unsure if any songs exist for Neil Young, but the only pseudo-exceptions to this is a Watch the Throne/Basement Tapes type scenario, where it is two artists releasing together
The parallel here apart from the clearly eligible albums with Crazy Horse would be the album credited to Stephen Stills and Neil Young, Long May You Run. Would the Young-sung songs on here qualify?

I guess we can count "Rust Never Sleeps..." and "Time Fades Away" as sure bets now to avoid that anyone shows up and turns everything around.

No "Long May You Run" if we follow moderators suggestions. Doesn't matter if there is two or four band members. I guess we can count "Rust Never Sleeps..." and "Time Fades Away" as sure bets now to avoid that anyone shows up and turns everything around.
Holden cited Watch the Throne and The Basement Tapes as de facto exceptions, presumably because they were collaborative efforts released under both distinct acts' names, not as part of a group (accepting CSN as an established band before Y was added from the 2nd album on). But I'm not going to bust a gut for Long May You Run, I was just thinking of anyone who rates it higher than I would, no harm intended!

After some research I’m going to say Long May You Run qualifies, as do it’s songs by Young.

Re: Artist of the Month Song/Album Polls - July '20 - Neil Young!

I'm forced to retract my likening of Time Fades Away with Rust Never Sleeps- the crowd are as loud as they would be on any live album and Neil introduces a couple of the songs, which would make it a hard sell as a studio album. It was then I realised I could do with listening to TFA again (after not having done so for years)...

Albums below, songs in a bit:

43. Everybody's Rockin' (1983)
42. Are You Passionate? (2002)
41. Colorado (2019)
40. Silver & Gold (2000)

34. Americana (2012)
33. The Visitor (2017)
32. A Letter Home (2014)
31. Long May You Run (1976)
30. Trans (1982)
29. Hawks & Doves (1980)
28. Peace Trail (2016)
27. Comes a Time (1978)
26. Psychedelic Pill (2012)

11. Sleeps with Angels (1994)
10. This Note's for You (1989)
9. Freedom (1989)
8. Landing on Water (1986) [this gets so much flak for its production that the songwriting gets overlooked]
7. Zuma (1975)
6. Le Noise (2010)
5. Harvest (1972)
4. After the Gold Rush (1970)
3. Rust Never Sleeps (1979)

Did not expect Neil Young to blow up more than Bruce Springsteen and Led Zeppelin but super happy for all the participants!

Today's the last day for this! Just warning, the roll-out might not be for a little bit, I'm going to wait for the EOD Albums poll and my own Mid-Year album roll-out to finish before I start this!
