Neil Young: Best of the Last 25 Years
The past 25 years of Neil Young's career have been even more varied than the initial phase of his career, as he continues to veer and swerve across the genres in his own unique rule breaking anti-fashion style.
From the blog The Unfinished Line: Neil Young: Best of the Last 25 Years:
I've been listening to Neil Young quite a bit lately, mostly focusing on the later part of his career.
I love his early stuff, and most folks prefer classic albums like "Harvest" and "Rust Never Sleeps". But he's remained incredibly prolific over the last quarter century, and his late-era catalogue is definitely worth exploring. While there are missteps, he's mostly been on a long string of inspiration that seems a bit taken for granted. I've compiled my favorite tracks of the last 25 years, one per album (excluding all live releases apart from the MTV unplugged collection). Selections from Neil Young solo albums are here alongside recordings with Crazy Horse and CSNY.
These are my personal favorites from each album, and they are all songs that I feel deserve a wider recognition as being some of the best work of his amazing career.
From 1986's "Hippie Dream" up to 2010's "Love and War", it's an interesting list of some essential Neil Young tracks.

We've always been partial to "Ordinary People", the hard working but unemployed people. But that's just us...
So how about you? What would you have added? Or subtracted?
