Neil Young & Crazy Horse‘s Rust Never Sleeps is a live album. I have written many times that I hate live albums. Why another one? I hate clapping and cheering. I want people to be quiet while I listen to music. I have become a fan of Young’s music, but this might be one that I do not like.
“My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)”, “Pocahontas“, and “Sail Away” are the best songs. The second half is more electric and I prefer him to be more acoustic.
I read some of the history of the album and it appears it was recorded live, but they overdubbed it in the studio and took out most of the audience sounds. This is great news. It is not Young’s best album, but it is not horrible at all. 7/10.
