Overview

Although the ever-unpredictable Neil Young spent much of the past decade stomping through shattering song cycles that affirmed his status as "the godfather of grunge," he's not about to start delivering the expected -- as borne out by this gorgeous, largely acoustic collection. Aficionados could consider SILVER AND GOLD a fitting completion to a trilogy begun by 1972's HARVEST and 1992's HARVEST MOON, but one needn't be fluent in Young's past work to appreciate the sincere emotion and breathtaking song craft that flow through its grooves. Young spends a lot of time addressing mortality here, most clearly on "Daddy Went Walkin'" and "Red Sun," both of which pine tellingly for innocence lost. In keeping with his tradition of self-reflection, the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Famer gives his professional career the once-over on "Buffalo Springfield Again" and ponders his future without donning rose-colored glasses on the closing "Without Wings." It took Young a full three years to burnish SILVER AND GOLD to his liking -- and it shines every bit as brightly as the precious metals evoked in its name.
