"Comes A Time"
September 11, 2001: The nation mourns the tragedy of
the Pentagon and World Trade Center bombings...
During this past week, we observed one of the most tragic disasters in
history. The terrorist attack bombings of the Pentagon and New York's
World Trade Center bombings. But life must go on, as we support President
George W. Bush, in his efforts to find those responsible, and justice be done.
As life does go on, this week's review is a soothing album -- Neil Young's
1978 release, Comes A Time. My memories of this album is when I was in
high school. This album was one of many that was always playing on my
turntable. (That was before the compact disc player came along...)
More of an accoustic album, this album is an excellent one; and is truly one
of Young's best.
"Goin' Back" can easily fit the songs on Young's 1972 release,
Harvest, and has lyrics that we could relate to the recent tragic
"I feel like goin' back|
Back where there's nowhere to stay
When fire fills the sky
I'll still remember that day
These rocks I'm climbing down
Have already left the ground
Careening through space"
Yes, we'll remember that day, September 11, 2001...
The title track has a country feel, and is considered my favorite song
on this album. Young's After The Gold Rush album by comes to mind when
hearing "Look Out For My Love."
"Lotta Love" was written by Neil Young, but most people may remember
Nicolette Larson's version. Larson's version had a more pop feel, and Young's
is very raw and accoustic. "Peace Of Mind" is very emotional; and with
lyrics like "You know it takes a long, long time/You're looking for peace
of mind", we will be looking for peace in our weeks and months ahead from
the terrorist attacks.
Hillbilly country/sweet country rock best describes "Human Highway,."
and "Field Of Opportunity." "Already One" has the sound of such
bands as The Eagles and Jackson Browne; a sweet-sounding song, it's another one
that was constantly listened to back in my high school days. "Motorcycle
Mama" features Nicolette Larson accompaning vocals with Young, and it's
the only song that is "hard rock" compared to the remaining tunes on this album.
It's an interesting album track, and another one that was listened to in my
high school days. The closing song, "Four Strong Winds" has The
Eagles/Jackson Browne sound.
Neil Young's Comes A Time is highly recommended. It's accoustic,
it's country rock, and most of the songs are easy and soothing to listen to.
Neil Young has had an interesting music career, blending ballads, country rock,
and hard rock. Comes A Time falls in the category of country rock than
anything else. And for country fans alike, this album is a must.
