This month is a joyous time for Neil Young fans. After eight long years, he is finally returning to the road with his longtime backing band Crazy Horse. This has been their longest break since Young began playing with the garage band in 1969. 

Accordingly, we have a question for you: What is Neil Young's single greatest album? Are you into his early Seventies classics, like Harvest and After the Goldrush? Maybe you dig the overlooked gems like Time Fades Away and On the Beach. You could be into his Eighties genre experiments like Trans and Old Ways, or you might have some sort of mental condition and cast your vote for Life or Landing on Water. Really, vote for whatever you want – but please just vote once and for just one album.

You can vote here in the comments, on facebook.com/rollingstone or on Twitter using the #weekend rock hashtag.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
