Neil Young: After the Gold Rush

I’m Canadian, love music, know Neil Young, but strangely have never listened to an entire Neil Young album. While watching music documentary Sound City for the fifth or sixth time, Young was featured and mentioned recording some of After the Gold Rush at the studio and I had my pick for March 2017. It’s time to dive in and get a complete taste of one of Canada’s most famous musical exports.
This is the third studio album by Young and he’s backed by Crazy Horse. The album was originally written as a soundtrack for a movie script by the same name that never got produced. Initial reception was weak but it’s gone on to become one of Young’s most famous albums. Lets see what’s inside?! Listen to why I selected this album and listen with us at The Sonic Collective.

The Clash: The Clash

Though many people will automatically relate to being a Clash fan, I also imagine like us, they probably have not listened to their first album from beginning to end in a long time, if ever. It was a fun ride to rediscover one of the albums that is considered to be one of the greatest punk albums of all time. It is definitely worth a listen but before you jump in, have a listen to our review to learn about this album as well as hear our ramblings aboout what we thought was great and not so great. Enjoy, we did, except Alain… sheesh Alain. Ha ha ha…
