Gotta disagree. What makes the biggest difference between them is the voice. Neil is great singer, Bruce just an average shouter

I don't remember Bruce being in Buffalo Springfield, or CSNY oh wait but Neil Young was in both of those groups along with his own band Crazy Horse. This is a bad comparrison due to the body of work that has been produced by one of the musicians.........

In this thread: Children don't know what they're talking about, make decision based on having heard 5 songs in their dad's truck.

Bruce Springsteen is in another stratosphere, and when you're old enough to have adult problems, call me.

Neither Young nor Springsteen nor Dylan are at their best when attempting to rock out so that doesn't matter to me.
Ok you're daft again.

BTW: Adult problems aren't necessarily good art. Young has plenty of songs about what I'd consider "grown problems," but regardless I just think he's a great artist not only for producing quality work but for dabbling with different sounds as well. Grunge Neil Young is interesting, but definitely not the primary idea to discern from his entire career.

I actually like both of them about the same even though they are very different. I love music so I accept each of them for what they are.

Actually, out of anger that the follow up to the monster River album was something that was not commercial, Nebraska was referred to as Omaha by Walter Yetnikoff in front of Bruce's face (Steve Knopper, Appetite for Self-Destruction, p.9).

I voted for Neil - more interesting and someone who released a lot of seriously WTF moments that have a serious history that fans still talk about today. Plus, he knows how to create intensity with economy - one note of Young's says more than many guitarists who fiddle around going nowhere (sorry, Eddie Van Halen, love the technique, but...). The singing may not be to everyone's taste, but he uses it well. Plus, along with the great classics with Crazy Horse, a fine debut album, the "Ditch Trilogy", and what he's inspired through the years, there's also his songs for Buffalo Springfield ("Expecting to Fly", "Mr. Soul" my favorites), working with Devo, the infamous Human Highway film (yes, I actually like it!), the great comeback that was Freedom, "This Note's for You", "Wonderin" (and it's video!), Journey Through the Past (The film, not the soundtrack, though...), Deja Vu (I like C,S,N with Y except for a 1988 album I try to forget about), and so on.

I actually like a number of Springsteen's songs, especially those from the first up to and including Nebraska. Still, in my view, the 80's overproduction of Born in the USA seriously was the point where I lost interest for a long time - where the epic turned into stereotype.

One went down many roads, the other stayed in his hometown...you know why I chose.

I can't think of one Bruce Springsteen album that I actually like and can't stand his singing either (which is rare as I wouldn't normally be put off an artist by his singing) Whereas on the other hand I can listen to almost anything by Neil Young and love it at the same time, even on his weakest albums I can still find something that I like.
