#206: Everybody Knows This is Nowhere by Neil Young and Crazy Horse

8.17.2012

Everybody Knows This is Nowhere by Neil Young and Crazy Horse (1969)

Favorite Track(s): "Cinnamon Girl" and "Everybody Knows This is Nowhere" and "Round & Round (It Won't Be Long)" and "Down by the River" and "Running Dry (Requiem for the Rockets)" and "Cowgirl in the Sand"

Thoughts: Definitely my favorite Neil album on the list so far. It's no secret that Neil is not my favorite member of CSNY (Graham Nash, you will always be #1), but I really love his tendency to write super melancholy, depressing songs that aren't overly maudlin or self-indulgent.  It's quality music for sad people!

Is This Better Than The River?: Yes.
