    For me:

    1. Wind On The Water
    2. Stills
    3. Zuma

    Love the top two. Both 5/5 for me.

    Zuma is one of my least favourite Neil Young albums.

    Zuma. One of Neil's very best in my opinion.

    Can I vote Zuma if I've never heard the others before?

    It can only be Zuma. Stills was good but Zuma is great.

    Cortez the Killer has some very fine guitar work.

    Zuma would win even if it only had "Cortez the Killer". Fantastic song even if it has some dodgy history.

    Zuma all day. Best Nash albums are Songs for Beginners and Wild Tales.

    Love Stephen Stills but that LP was surely the beginning of the decline.
    For me except for one or two songs it’s sadly forgettable.

    “Zuma” and “Wind on the Water” both wonderful.

    I've never thought to compare these before. I knew that each of them came out in 1975, but it never occurred to me that that makes them contemporaneous. Zuma is my pick without a doubt because it's one of my favorite Neil Young albums. Wind on the Water is very good too, but Stills is where I stop following Stephen Stills' career outside of CSN.

    I totally agree but Nash's songs on "Wind On The Water" are excellent too: "Take The Money And Run", "Fieldworker", "Cowboy Of Dreams" or the best of all "Love Work Out" (guitar solo at the end gives me chills everytime I hear it).

    Don't get me wrong, I love "Cortez the Killer" but I think that "Danger Bird" is even better.

    I couldn’t vote because I hold both Zuma and Wind on the Water in such high regard. Couldn’t honestly choose between them. Stills, on the other hand, is nowhere near the other two, and has already been noted, was the start of a run of mediocrity for Stephen Stills.

    I haven't actually heard Wind On The Water all the way through yet, and haven't heard all of Stills, but Zuma all the way for me.

    I wonder how Zuma would fare going up against Neil Young's other album released in '75, Tonight's The Night.

    Although Crosby & Nash self titled album is awesome, I think that "Wind On The Water" is their creative peak. Highly recommended.

    The two albums that finally got me into Neil after years of dismissing him as some stoned-out hippie-dip!

    As the man himself said, the ditch is definitely more interesting than the interstate (or words to that effect).
