Sorry for the tardiness of Music Monday. Today's feature is Neil Young. Now, Neil Young is one of those artists who has massive amounts of music on tons of different albums, so I'm just going to focus on my favorites. Those albums would be: Silver and Gold, Harvest, and Harvest Moon. I much prefer Neil Young as a mellow artist, and don't fancy much of his rockin' stuff, but the nice part about an artist like him, is there's something for most everyone in his catalog.
I didn't grow up listening to Neil Young, I only developed an obsession about 4 years ago. I heard the song "Razor Love" on a college radio station that is VERY hit and miss, and new I had to check out his music. I was surprised to find out that Silver and Gold was released in 2000. The songs from that album are beautifully written, and are extremely reminiscent of songs from Harvest Moon (1992) and even some from Harvest (1972). I feel like Neil Young is quite the timeless artist. Even Prairie Wind, which was just released in 2005, would be a good representation of what Neil Young does best. I love him as a singer/songwriter/acoustic guitar artist... especially when Emmylou Harris is singing backgrounds for him. :)
