Muze PNote As far as pure songcraft goes, it's hard to beat this 1979 offering from Neil Young and 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 its 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."

Producer: David Briggs; Neil Young; Tim Mulligan

Artist Overview

Like the Band, Neil Young eschewed his Canadian roots to create a sound rooted in American folk and country, which he mixed with visionary, poetic rock in Buffalo Springfield and on his solo albums. He played the crucial fourth wheel role in Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, but ultimately proved too individualistic to participate in a democracy. The gritty, electric assault of his work with Crazy Horse is the alter ego of Young's more folk/country-based work, and also proved a key influence on the grunge sound of Seattle (Young even recorded a live album with Pearl Jam as his backing band). Over the years, he's followed his mercurial muse through everything from rockabilly to synth-pop to big-band blues, always remaining uniquely Neil.

Q (1/03, p.64)
- Included in Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums Ever"

Q (8/93, p.107)
- 4 Stars - Excellent - " flows, it's got a couple of his strongest issue songs in 'Pocahontas' and 'Powderfinger,' and it's even rather good-humored..."

The Wire (pp.45-47)
- "RUST NEVER SLEEPS represented a further textural shift in Young's guitar playing....The electric material on RUST NEVER SLEEPS is as punk as a well established major label artist could hope to be at the time..."

Mojo (Publisher)
(11/01, p.151)
- "Half-acoustic, half electric, the tracks ranged from beautifully affecting to menacing..."
