critics' view

Neil Young spent much of the 1980s experimenting with different genres, from new wave and country to rockabilly and blues. While all these albums all have great moments, they weren't exactly what his fanbase was craving; label boss David Geffen even sued Young for recording "unrepresentative music." But in 1990, Young called Crazy Horse back into the studio and cut a rock disc that stands up to anything he did back in the 1970s. "Country Home," "Love to Burn" and "Fuckin' Up" wouldn't have sounded out of place on Rust Never Sleeps, and this was just the beginning of Young's huge comeback. A new genre of music would break big the next year, and journalists started calling Young the "Godfather of Grunge."
