Good Songs Mediocre Singing

My feeling on Neil Young is that he is quite an accomplished songwriter. Tunes like Only Love Can Break Your Heart, Cripple Creek Ferry, Don't Let It Bring You Down, and a few others are quite captivating both musically and lyrically. There are some good guitar and piano passages throughout the record as well.

However, the bringdown is Neil's voice. The title track is quite beautiful...that is except for the off tone vocals of Mr. Young. Southern Man and When You Dance are captivating rockers. However, Neil's harsh whinny vocals do annoy me rather than please me. The harmonies by Crazy horse and any guest musicians help somewhat. However, when the lead voice is a liability, the entire project suffers as a whole.

Therefore a three star rating seems fair. I would seek out Harvest instead of this as Neil's vocals on that CD are a bit more listenable.
