 Notes & Reviews
Perhaps Neil's finest album.
- Rob Labelle, 01/03/2012, Canada

What can I say? Neil is just one of those guys whos albums are a must.
- James Radford, 01/05/2010, New Zealand

Some of Neil's best stuff, it contains several true classics, including two versions of 'Rockin' in the Free World', as heard in Fahrenheit 9/11. A great album to introduce someone to what Neil Young is about.
- Dave Brown, 07/26/2004, USA

Some of his best work -- 'Someday' and 'El Dorado' are must haves.
- John Swinney, 01/27/1998, USA

Freedom is the eighteenth studio album by Canadian rock musician Neil Young, released on October 2, 1989. Freedom effectively relaunched Young's career after a largely unsuccessful decade. After many arguments (and a lawsuit), Young left Geffen Records in 1988 and returned to his original label, Reprise, with This Note's for You. Freedom, however, brought about a new, critical and commercially successful album. This album was released in the United States as an LP record and a CD in 1989. Stylistically, the album was one of Young's most diverse records, ranging from acoustic love songs to raging rockers. Three of the songs on Freedom ('Don't Cry, ' 'Eldorado' and 'On Broadway') had previously been released on the Japan and Australia-only EP Eldorado, and featured heavy waves of thundering distortion and feedback, juxtaposed with quieter sections.
