  1. Silver & Gold is as pretty an album as Young's created yet...
  2. This record demands a room full of quiet and your undivided attention. Listen to it any other way and you may be disappointed, even bored, by it. And that will be your hard luck, because Silver and Gold is Neil Young at his hushed, acoustic best: simple, romantic, direct.
  3. Most of the time these low-key meditations on enduring love and friendship ring true...
  4. Gently acoustic, peacefully steeped in nostalgia and remembrance, it generates a warm glow of grace...

    This one finds him getting almost downright sappy. But it suits him well.
  6. Overall, though, this is one of those odd little albums that the ever-prolific Young comes up with periodically -- dotted with a few flashes of inspiration, ultimately sunk by a lot of by-rote artistic adequacy.

    One of my favourite Neil Young albums by far. Razor Love and Without Rings are the best! Not for rockin out of course, but for getting mellow it's fantastic! Expand

    This is Neil Young at his very best. Honestly one of the most amazing albums I have even heard in my entire life. Neil Young stays entirely away from orchestral arrangements, brass, and electric guitars for the entire album and the result is his most powerful album. Expand

    The older I am, the better this album sounds. I like live DVD version with some extra songs (taken from Looking Forward CSNY album). Strong melodies. This one is IMHO much better than LwW or Prairie Wind. Better songs than on the other albums. Expand
