i still think all of the surrounding records are way better but this is a nice fill in the blank piece....

Surrounding as in the time it was recorded and meant to be released or surrounding as in the last couple of chronologically released albums?

Surrounding records as when it was meant to be released.

Answer the question!

Joe have you heard On The Beach?

I am not Joe but On the Beach is my favorite Neil Young album right now.

That will always be my number one, and it is the one that is closest in vibe to Homegrown I think

I thought of Harvest at first but it does really have the range and sort of good raggedness of On the Beach.

What I've heard (ranked):

Everybody Knows This is Nowhere
After the Gold Rush
Harvest Moon
Mirror Ball
Silver and Gold
Homegrown (after one listen; this is just a temporary ranking)
Chrome Dreams II
Long May You Run
Prairie Wind
Tonight's the Night
Rust Never Sleeps
Harvest
Comes A Time
Are You Passionate
Freedom
Living With War
Neil Young
Greendale

I'll also say that I need to listen to almost all of these again. It's been a long time for most of those. I tend to be a single track/playlist Neil Young consumer. I don't usually do full Neil albums front to back very often.

I once almost started a thread titled "What's your favorite album of all time and why is it On the Beach?"

I know I listened to the first couple of tracks on Le Noise when it first came out. But then I never finished it and the computer I had it downloaded died. I remember liking the beginning of it. But I never went back to it.

TBH I think I've listened to Tonight's the Night more over the past few years, but OTB is still waaaaay up on the list.

Homegrown has really inspired me. I'll give Le Noise and On the Beach some spins this week. :hooray:

Yeah definitely give On the Beach a go. It's my favourite Neil album as well.

You might also like Hitchhiker. It's another "lost album" from the 70s that was finally released a couple years ago. It's got a similar vibe to Homegrown except it's mostly just solo acoustic.

Unless I'm missing something, it seems like all of Homegrown -- even the previously released songs -- would have been new to you. I imagine that really enhanced the experience of the record, and you probably got to have a pretty unique experience with it that not a lot of Neil fans had as a result. I think Homegrown is wonderful but after 20-25 years of listening to Neil, it's definitely a challenge to divorce some of those songs from their original contexts and really hear Homegrown as a single cohesive thing.

On the Beach has been my favorite Neil Young album at times too -- a great recommendation.

I dont think i have a favorite from him. Its always changing from what i need to hear at that time. I would say that i might prefer Neil with Crazy Horse...and yes, Mirror Ball is definitely one of his masterpieces.

Funny thing- Mirrorball was one of my favorite albums period before I did the album journey with Neil, but now it doesn’t make my top 10 favorite Neil Young albums. That’s a statement to me on how highly I regard his albums.
