Ah Harvest Moon. Like Bat out Hell 2, it's a key example of how an artist going back to an original blueprint can reap dividends. On Harvest Moon Neil Young captured the vibe of his original Harvest album, with a series of beautifully evocative acoustic songs including utterly essential closer Natural Beauty.

Harvest Moon is a remarkable album from a singer songwriter who was almost 30 years into his music career when it came out in 1992. Besides the fact that it coincided with a renewed interest in his work at a time when he was being considered the Godfather of Grunge, Harvest Moon is the spiritual sequel to arguably his most widely known album, 1972's Harvest. Choosing to get the old Harvest line-up (The Stray Gators) back together is an inspired move and the result is that familiar, graceful country-tinged atmosphere. From the gentle opener 'Unknown Legend' to live album closer 'Natural Beauty', the album has an intimate, biographical feel to it, and the title track may be one of his greatest songs. It doesn't quite stand up to his greatest albums, but it's among the strongest of his second-tier records.
