Not sure what's happening with me on this one, but it seems like the more I listen to it, the better On The Beach gets. On The Beach simply put is one of Neil Young's best CDs to date.

It's a rare day indeed that I get a CD from an artist that I can truthfully say does not have a bad track in the bunch. I'm more than happy to announce that's exactly what I must say about this one. There simply is NOT a bad one in the bunch. No fillers here at all.

One of the refreshingly nice things about this CD is the way all of the participating artists seem to be really enjoying themselves. Combine that with the overall presentation and you've got one of Neil Young's most impressive releases ever.

Listen to and I think you'll agree that the song choices are excellent, the production is outstanding and Neil Young is clearly in top form.

While this entire album is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 2 - See The Sky About To Rain, track 4 - For The Turnstiles, and track 8 - Ambulance Blues.

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Walk On. Wow!
