    Default Neil Young albums - worst to best

    For those who don't know their Neil Young from Paul Young, here's a pretty accurate run down of his albums from worst to best. (Scroll down to 'Bonus, Neil Young Albums ranked Worst to Best'.)

    He has made some duffers and not just in the 80s, but when he gets it right, it's magic and he genuinely cares about sound quality.

    I have the top three and don't feel the need to increase my collection.
    20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon

    The ones with Crazy Horse tend to be the better ones, with perhaps the exception of 'Americana' (some critics liked it). But there are other albums without CH, such as his more recent live archive releases that are great also. So the LPs to note are:

    Zuma, Rust Never Sleeps, Re-ac-tor, Ragged Glory, Sleeps With Angels, Broken Arrow, Psychedelic Pill.

    Without Crazy Horse I like Living With War, just because of its energy and spontaneity although it's of its time (politically).

    Just to add, catching up is pricey as most vinyl goes OOP quickly and he has 37 solo albums now.

    I wonder exacly how the figures all stack up?? I have a colleague at work who has got to be the most dedicated NY fan and claims over 300 albums with no duplication!!!

    He's still buying them from specialists and second hand shops and keeps finding different albums, whether they are compilations, recordings of live concerts / tours, bootlegs and wotever he can find (lots of USA imports!).

    But over 300 is hard to comprehend...... (must be worth a bob or three as a collection)?
