Rust Never Sleeps

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Rust Never Sleeps, its aphoristic title drawn from an intended advertising slogan, was an album of new songs, some of them recorded on Neil Young's 1978 concert tour. His strongest collection since Tonight's the Night, its obvious antecedent was Bob Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home, and, as Dylan did, Young divided his record into acoustic and electric sides while filling his songs with wildly imaginative imagery.

Young then spent the rest of the album demonstrating that his chief weapons against rusting were his imagination and his daring, creating an archetypal album that encapsulated his many styles on a single disc with great songs -- in particular the remarkable "Powderfinger" -- unlike any he had written before.

    Flawless!!

    The first time I heard this album, I was just so incredibly amazed. The acoustic on My My, Hey Hey was just incredible. The lyrics are very smart and sound incredible. Neil Young is one of the best songwriters of all time. Rock N' Roll will never die.
