I gotta tell ya, Neil Young's "Psychedelic Pill" is in his top 5; and Van Morrison's "Born to Sing, No plan B" is in his top five.

I give both 5 stars.

To make the eval more complete, my top five by each:

No particulate order for Neil...

Psyhcdelic Pill

Le Noise

Harvest Moon

Harvest

Everybody Knows This is Nowhere

For Van...

It starts with Moondance (it captured my brain the day I found it.)

2-5 would include....

Born to Sing, No Plan B

Too Long in Exile

Days Like This

Beautiful Vision

I hope you enjoy "Psychedilic Pill,"l it's a Crazy Horse album. And "No Plan B" is as smooth as Tupelo Honey.

I'll give you Moondance as #1. But, Astral Weeks surely has to be #2 and Tupelo Honey is nearly as easily #3. After that, if we don't count Bang Masters as a real album, His Band and the Street Choir and Saint Dominic's Preview are probably my #s 4 and 5 respectively. But it seems like almost every album of his following the mid seventies has exactly one good song on it to me.

That said, of course I'm gonna get this. After all, Back on Top was worth ten times the $15 I paid just for "High Summer".

I haven't heard Psychedelic Pill yet, but will be going to see him here in 2 weeks. My top 5 is quite different from yours. In fact my fave Neil album isn't even close imho. In order

Rust Never Sleeps
Everybody Knows This is Nowhere
Harvest
Freedom
Tonight's the Night

Ragged Glory is close to being in my top 5.

I was also tempted to toss in American Stars and Bars, but gave myself and arbitrary top five and that was yesterday's feeling. I consider these lists to rather fluid. Cool

We overlap by 40%.

What I really like about Psychedelic PIll is that Neil lets the songs linger. I always wanted ever longer versions of "Tonight's the Night," "Cortez the Killer," "Hurricane," and "Down By the River." Psychedelic Pill kinda gives me that.

When Neil did his Rust tours, I particularly liked how he'd extend many of the songs.
