  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...
  5. 70
    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
