It contains 35 of Young's songs recorded between 1966 and 1976, among them five tracks that had been unreleased up to that point. It peaked at No. 43 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart, and was certified platinum by the RIAA in 1986.
He seems intent on making the album a listenable one that will appeal to a broad base of fans, and he succeeds despite the exclusion of much of the harrowing work of 1973-1975. Nevertheless, the album is an ideal sampler for new listeners, and since there is no one-disc Young compilation covering any significant portion of his career, this lengthy chronicle is the place to start.
Listen free to Neil Young – Decade (Down to the Wire, Burned and more). Given the quirkiness of Neil Young's recording career, with its frequent cancellations of releases and last-minute rearrangements of material, it is a relief to report that this two-disc compilation is so conventional and so satisfying. A 35-track selection of the best of Young's work between 1966 and 1976, it includes songs performed by Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and the Stills-Young Band, as well as solo work.

Neil Young had a way of producing awesome rock along with rock which is almost unlistenable, on the same album (or "cd" for you Youngin's). Decade is no exception, just his longest. If he took a dozen of his real hits, and put them on one work, it would be almost unsurpassable on the charts. But hey hey, my my, in the world of cd, we can bleep past the dogs, huh?
