Harvest Moon

Harvest Moon is the twenty-first studio album by Canadian musician Neil Young, released in 1992. Many of the musicians appearing on it also appeared on his 1972 album Harvest, and this album is considered by many to be a pseudo-sequel to Harvest. Recovering from a case of tinnitus that had come about after the recording of 1990's Ragged Glory and its subsequent tour (which produced 1991's Weld and Arc), Young was determined to return to the studio.

Review:

Entertainment Weekly - "...In both music and tone, HARVEST MOON is wistful and elegiac....it's the classic-rock equivalent of a late-period Sinatra saloon-song album....comfortable, reassuring, and proudly old wave..." - Rating: B+
"...HARVEST MOON has the same haunted sound as its predecessor....vintage Neil Young..."
Vox - 10 - Classic - "...Though essentially a warm, emotional album, it doesn't flinch from a realization that innocent idealism is no longer a viable commodity on mankind's futures market...HARVEST MOON may be the best work he's ever done..."
Audio Magazine - Sound: B / Performance: A- - "...simple and subtle..."
Rolling Stone - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...sounds like the calm after the storm, with a hushed musical landscape at times populated only by a ghostly harmonica, a few spooky bass lines and Young's cracked tenor...within these spare settings, Young's search for shelter from the storm resonates like a heartbeat..."
Mojo - "...It's a more mature, contented record, with a good deal of gentle nostalgia..."
Q - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...he has surrounded his meditations in some of his simplest, most gorgeous melodies in years..."
Q - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."
Village Voice - Ranked #17 in the Village Voice's list of the 40 Best Albums Of 1992.
Spin - Highly Recommended - "...HARVEST MOON is all strummed acoustic chords, scenic choral overdubs, melodies cruising smooth as an air-conditioned limo on a two-lane blacktop. Underneath the tranquility and cosmic platitudes, there's a human highway..."
Musician - "...this unadorned folk music exudes real weight....Young at his best..."
