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.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
