On The Beach is probably one of Neil Young’s lesser known albums, but it is right up there with his best work. Originally released in 1974 it was less commercial than its highly successful predecessor, Harvest - a typical curve ball from a man who doesn’t like to stand still for too long.

10/10 Stephen Customer review, 6th August 2016

I don't really know what to say about this other than it's probably my favourite Neil Young album and everyone should own a copy. As a whole it's different from his other albums and certainly a marked departure from it's predecessor, "Harvest". The musical jauntiness of opener "Walk On" and the electric piano-led "See The Sky About To Rain" both sound quite different to his previous acoustic plods or proto-alt. rock classics. "Revolution Blues" references Charles Manson in a roundabout way: "Well I hear that Laurel Canyon is full of famous stars/but I hate them worse than lepers and I'll kill them in their cars". The duo of "Motion Pictures" and "Ambulance Blues" close the album beautifully, if mournfully.
