Neil Young & Crazy Horse

Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere

Song Review by

Like several of Neil Young's songs from this period, the title song from Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere is clearly a cry from a man that is in need of settling down after a hair-raising experience. In the author's case, it was obviously the entire Buffalo Springfield period. Young is celebrating a simple life in the country here, and, musically, the Western-influenced melody and backing from Crazy Horse reflect this perfectly.
