The First Unimportant Neil Young Album

"At less than thirty minutes, Hawks and Doves is more of a glorified EP than an actual album. Released in 1980, it was the beginning of a creative dryspell for the otherwise brilliant Neil Young that lasted nearly ten years. As with Bob Dylan, the 1980s were trying times for Neil Young. It wouldn't be until 1989 that both men made their comebacks.
The few highlights are from the acoustic half. 'Little Wing,' 'The Old Homestead,' and 'Captain Kennedy' keep Hawks and Doves soaring...just barely. The "album" is not a total disappointment. Hawks and Doves is worth buying if you can find it cheap, but no Neil Young enthusiast should start their collection here. **1/2"
