1. Tonight's the Night 4:39
2. Speakin' Out 4:56
3. World on a String 2:27
4. Borrowed Tune 3:26
5. Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown 3:35
6. Mellow My Mind 3:07
7. Roll Another Number (For the Road) 3:02
8. Albuquerque 4:02
9. New Mama 2:11
10. Lookout Joe 3:57
11. Tired Eyes 4:38
12. Tonight's the Night - Part II 4:52

This album secured Neil Young's place as all time greatest singer-songwriter (in my mind) when its brilliance hit me. Less free-form than his similarly bleak On the Beach, Tonight's the Night is a unique blend of conventional country rock with skeletal, disorienting parts, making it strange and unsettling to suit the lyrical despondency.

A+
