Music : Rock : Lossless
I consider this album an essential Neil Young masterpiece. Some suggested "Live Rust" as a better choice, Live Rust is great, I love it, but it doesn't have Thrasher, one of the best songs Neil ever wrote! Or Pocahontas, or Sail Away, or Ride My Llama, I mean these are some of the best songs Neil has ever written and if you just buy Live Rust you don't get them. Bottom line: buy Rust Never Sleeps AND Live Rust!! "Rust Never Sleeps" was recorded live with the audience track subsequently removed (which is why it doesn't sound like a live album - no cheering or clapping or singing along). The first five songs are acoustic and the last four are electric - in the vinyl days it would have translated as the first and second side.
