Neil Young's Most Underrated Album

"AMERICAN STARS 'N' BARS is Neil Young's most underrated album ever. Not even the artist himself has made any grand claims for it, and, given the low-key performances that make up much of the album, it's easy to see why. However, it does feature two of Neil's best rockers of the 1976-78 period, "Bite The Bullet" and "Like A Hurricane", both of which sound like a mutant hybrid of hippie-country-folk-rockers Buffalo Springfield and pro-law-enforcement hard rocker Ted Nugent, with a huge helping of Montrose (another band featuring a pro-law-enforcement member, Sammy Hagar), thrown in. This CD deserves a wider hearing than the original album got."
One of my favorites of all time!

"This cd has such a good feel to it. You hardly ever hear mention of this cd but it is one of my favorites of Neil Young. Makes me want to get up and ride a Palamino to the nearest bar!"
C'mon - it's a good album...

"I laugh whenever I look at the cover on this album. Must've been some night.
Anyway - I bought this thing cheap, and find that I reach for it much more than I felt I would after the first listening. Of course it has "Like a Hurricane", one of my faves. But I've got to say that, with the exception of "Will to Love" (blah), the other tunes on this are pretty catchy. Most of it has a country feel. They let go a bit on "Bite the Bullet", and "Homegrown" just sticks in your head. It's pretty good, and I play it more than I thought I would."
