#346: Rust Never Sleeps by Neil Young & Crazy Horse

6.27.2011


Rust Never Sleeps by Neil Young & Crazy Horse (1979)

Favorite Track(s): "My My, Hey, Hey (Out of the Blue)" and "Thrasher" and "Sail Away"

Thoughts: Oh hey, Neil Young! I think this is the first album of his we've had on the list so far. Growing up I hated his voice, and it felt like my parents had to play "Heart of Gold" and "Old Man" ALL THE TIME and I couldn't get over how awful he sounded. As I grew older I learned to tolerate his voice, but still love him most of all with Crosby, Stills, and Nash.

I think my favorite Neil Young song is "Man Needs A Maid" but I also like "Unknown Legend" and "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" and a few more. I'm hopeful he'll show up a lot more on the list so I can hear more of his catalog.

I really liked most of this album. "Ride My Llama" made me think of two things, neither of which had much to do with the actual song. First:



And second:



Ok, I just really wanted to post both of those. Sue me. Also, "Sedan Delivery" felt like a 90s REM song, so that was cool (for a 1979 album). Good stuff!
