CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

With his newfound confidence, Young was poised to stretch, and After the Gold Rush sounds a bit like an overview of the Great American Songbook but with one guy writing almost all the songs.

Rolling Stone

Despite the fact that the album contains some potentially first rate material, none of the songs here rise above the uniformly dull surface.

Under The Radar

There isn't another album quite so quintessentially Neil Young as After the Gold Rush, where he felt so comfortable and confident in his own skin.

Always come back to this. As soon as those first few notes come in on Tell Me Why, I have to listen to the whole album all the way through. Truly timeless sound.

Favorite Tracks: could never choose

Least Favorite: Oh Lonesome Me
