Neil Young is one of rock’s purest poets, continually shining a flashlight into the shadows of the human condition. His musical parables provide a voice for those often overlooked in a fast-paced society. Combining brilliant songwriting with an ever-present social conscience, Rust Never Sleeps stands as one of Young’s greatest achievements. Featuring support by Crazy Horse, the backing band usually associated with Young’s more musically aggressive material, this album presents a stunning portrait of an artist in mid-career. Fusing the righteous anger of his earlier work with the considered wisdom that would colour his subsequent albums, Young finds a compelling middle ground.

Editorial Notes

Neil Young & Crazy Horse: Neil Young (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars); Frank Sampedro (guitar); Billy Talbot (bass); Ralph Molina (drums). Additional personnel: Nicolette Larson (vocals); Joe Osborne, Carl Himmel. Additional producers: Tim Mulligan, David Briggs. As far as pure songcraft goes, it hard to beat this 1979 offering from Young & Crazy Horse. By the end of the '90s, Young, Talbot, Molina and Sampredo had refined their crushing sonic assault to the extent that they could bludgeon the listener with Wagnerian riffs and rhythms (the entropy hymn "Hey Hey, My My") or provide just enough grit to keep Young's far-out lyrics from ascending into the stratosphere ("Ride My Llama.") Songwise, RUST is a schizophrenic album. Young moves from the brilliant surrealist imagery of "Pocahontas," with it's evocation of "Marlon Brando, Pocahontas and me," to the sharp narrative perspective of the equally transcendent "Powderfinger" and the good-humored social commentary of "Welfare Mothers."
