Reseña de álbum

It may be hard to believe, but 2004's Greatest Hits is not only the first retrospective Neil Young has released since 1977's Decade, it's the first ever single-disc collection of his best-known songs. That's a span of 27 years separating the two collections, which is an awful long time to resist a Greatest Hits disc — many of his peers succumbed, offering countless comps during those years — and such a resistance to a compilation may not be much a surprise from the legendarily prickly Young, but what is a surprise is that 11 of the 16 songs on Greatest Hits were also on Decade. Of the five songs that were not on Decade, only two date from after the '70s — 1989's "Rockin' in the Free World" and 1992's "Harvest Moon" — while one of the remaining three (1970's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart") comes from the time chronicled on Decade; the other two, 1978's "Comes a Time" and 1979's "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)," arrived in the two years of the '70s not covered on the 1977 compilation. All this means is that Greatest Hits offers the basic canon, with no frills and none of Neil's trademark idiosyncrasy. Some may miss that cantankerous spirit, pointing out that this contains nothing from his towering twin masterpieces of dark introspection — Tonight's the Night and On the Beach — or that there's nothing from Buffalo Springfield (which was covered on Decade) and that noteworthy songs like "Powderfinger," "Cortez the Killer," "Lotta Love," and "Long May You Run" are missing. Ultimately, that doesn't matter much, because Greatest Hits has all the songs that every Neil Young fan, from the devoted to the casual listener, agrees are his biggest and best: "Down by the River," "Cinnamon Girl," "Helpless," "After the Gold Rush," "Southern Man," "Ohio," "The Needle and the Damage Done," "Old Man," "Heart of Gold," "Like a Hurricane." And that's why it works as an all-business introduction for the uninitiated and as a concise summary for those not willing to travel down all the long, winding roads Young has traveled over the years. In other words, it's as good a compilation as it could have been. [Greatest Hits was released in several editions. In addition to the basic single CD, there was a limited edition containing a DVD video with the promo clips for "Rockin' in the Free World" and "Harvest Moon." There was another limited edition with a bonus 7" record. Finally, it was also released as a high-resolution DVD Audio disc.]

Such a Gifted Writer

Neil Young is such a talent! There is such an emotional depth to the songs on here and if you listen closley you might just learn something. "Cinnamon Girl" is to to be written about Pamela Courson who was Jim Morrison's muse and soulmate. "Southern Man" is a response to the racism Neil witnessed in the South when he first came to America from Canada. This was the song that inspired Lynyrd Skynyrd to write "Sweet Home Alabama". "Ohio" is from Neil's time with CSN and is written about the Kent State shootings. "The Needle and the Damage Done" is perhaps the most beautiful song on here. It was written about Danny Whitten, the guitarist who played in Young's backing band Crazy Horse. It's a song about heroin addiction. "Rockin' in the Free World" is excellent social commentary written during the Bush era during the 80's. Thats where the line "We've got a thousand points of light" comes from as Bush often used this mantra in his speeches. The guitar palying on tracks such a "Down By the River" and "Cowgirl in the Sand" showcase Young's amazing guitar skills. I don't understand why "Cortez the Killer" was left off of this album. That song contains the best guitar playing Neil has ever done. If you want to find that song, its on Neil's "Zuma" album. This is a solid collection of songs from a inspiring and passionate man.

Good Compilation

Neil's done so much over his career and had so many great hits that I don't know how a record company could put out a Neil greatest hits without it being a box set. Let's face it. However, these are great hits, so if you're shopping and looking for some outstanding tunes, you found 'em. Hey Hey, My My...

Good, but not quite...

Neil Young is a god, in every sense of the word. But I think most people who seek his music just go straight for the greatest hits, which is usually a gret idea, but not in this case. To get the REAL NEIL YOUNG EXPERIENCE, grab a copy of DECADE. There you will find all the best, and then some. And while it may be ten extra dollars, I assure you, it is worth it!

Tras dejar la banda Buffalo Springfield en 1968, Neil Young logró establecerse como uno de los más influyentes y personales cantautores de su generación. El cuerpo de su obra se ubica en un segundo plano respecto de Bob Dylan en lo que hace a profundidad y pudo mantener su importante reputación así como sus ventas por un sorprendente y prolongado lapso. Desde los comienzos de su carrera como solista a finales de los 60 hasta finales de los 90, nunca dejó de escribir, grabar y tocar...
