Neil Young Cracks Top 40 for 40th Time: Top 7 Highest-Charting Albums

neil-youngRyan Book at Music Times writes that this week marked an interesting accomplishment for Neil Young, who debuted an album in the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 for the 40th time with The Monsanto Years, which opened at no. 21.

Book writes: “Many of the reviews for Monsanto have been mixed—either as a question of its musical content or because of Young’s politics, which tackles numerous companies including the titular Monsanto and Starbucks. Regardless of what you think about Young’s politics, and even if you dislike his style personally, you’ve got to hand it to him for having cracked the Top 40 on the albums chart 40 times. Music Times isn’t going to run through all 40 of those entries, but we’ll give you a quick rundown of the seven highest-charting albums in Young’s catalogue. You may be surprised at some that did…and didn’t…make the cut.”

Every one of my records, to me, is like an ongoing autobiography. I can\'t write the same book very time. There are artists that can. They put out three or four albums every year and verything ***** sounds the same. That\'s great. Somebody\'s trying to communicate to a lot of people and give them the kind of music that they know they want to hear. That isn\'t my trip. My trip is to express what\'s on my mind. I don\'t expect people to listen to my music all the time. Sometimes it\'s too intense. If you\'re gonna put a record on at 11:00 in the morning, don\'t put on Tonight\'s The Night. Put on the Doobie Brothers.
