This album is an absolute gem. It is not only my favorite Young album, but my favorite cd in my collection (about 400). It's hard to put into words what makes this album work so well. It is powerful and flows with feeling from the get-go. Neil's saxophone-style lead guitar playing is fantastic. The only drawback -- the song "Let's Roll" isn't Neil's best work, but it actually compliments the rest of the album with the feeling it envokes.
This album is a case of being "worth more than the sum of its parts." Taken individually, each song seems a bit lost after hearing the entire album. I usually listen to the whole cd from start to finish, and I'm always left satisfied. Young was definitely inspired when he created this album -- and it will leave you inspired as well.

In 1967 Jimi Hendrix wowed Buffalo Springfield's Neil Young. Neil mimics the H-man's flamboyant guitar improvisation with some pretty fancy tooth pickin' of his own in the 'Weld' video; he included Jimi's 'Star Spangled Banner' in the 'Rust Never Sleeps' film, and even offered up his own psychedelic version of the national anthem as a 'Prisoners of Rock and Roll' coda on 'Year of the Horse'. Shoot, Neil's done everything but pour lighter fluid on 'Old Black' and light 'er up! So is 'Are You Passionate' a mock-up to the Hendrix Experience debut LP, 'Are You Experienced'? Are You Crazy?
Let's hope that wasn't Neil's intent, even subliminally, because it just doesn't cut it. This album is funky, but undistinguished, and funky isn't what Neil does best anyway. Funky is done well by Booker T. Jones and Donald 'Duck' Dunn, who accompany Young here, but the wrong partner is leading the dance. Neil's guitar has a big, resonant sound throughout much of the disc, with little of the trademark distortion and feedback that often makes for a good, biting Young tune. You might call some of these numbers slick. There are even backing vocals here that are reminisient of Motown art.
The album pretty much breaks down to two sets of four songs each that open and close the album, and that sound pretty much the same. The best of the bunch are the opener, 'You're My Girl', offering standard pop fare, and the closer, 'She's a Healer' a love poem to Neil's wife that is beautiful lyrically and possessing an infectious beat and bold guitar lines.
Between these 4-song bookends are two numbers that are much heavier in their sound and character. 'Let's Roll' is a dark anthem, 'Ohio' in 9-11 time.

Neil Young has always been at his best when chewing up cliches. The two halves of his great strength as a songwriter, aside from the great tunes, were: first, his ability to take an old phrase and turn it upside down, to draw meaning from words that had run out of ink; second, his ability to make real, true art with his creative invention and reworking of symbols.
It's telling, then, that only three songs here features such clever use of words: the title track, the killer "Goin' Home", and the final track, "She's a Healer". When Neil sings, "Are you negative in a world that never stops... turning on you," the listener's mind hangs on every word (stops ... turning ... on you) as we round the syntactic bend and realize what he's saying. "Goin' Home" features lyrics are impressive even when compared to the rest of Young's work: "Elusively, she cut the phone / and jumped from cell to cell / really looking remarkable / -- and obviously doing well", the slant rhymes all work and grab the listener by the throat. "She's a Healer" features very evocative turns of phrase that hint at something unsaid, while using a cliche ("Let the good times roll") in a very interesting way. It features a groaner of a rhyme (that ends with "Without her, I'd be toast").
Word choice is only craft, though; what about the art? The majority of the songs here are meditations on getting old, on losing children, loves, and friends, and the majority have a very limited use of symbolism. Aside from "Goin' Home", everything means exactly what it says and nothing more. At least lyrically speaking, that means it's just not great art.
Well, when art is gone, there's always meaning, right? Well, sadly, AYP? features a shaky-sounding Shakey mouthing plagiarized sentiments a younger Young might well have mocked.

I love this cd and would recommend it to anyone who likes groovin' melodies. I am not a real big NY fan but this cd has changed my mind. I will look for more great music from this legend.

This is again another different style for NY.Some beutiful soulfull ballads played with some great guitar riffs.Also some good NY semi rockers. Though only 75% of the music is up to Neils usual standard. Thats still over 45 mins of great music.One thing though the lead guitars have some serious induced distortion, that although sounds great, had me swapping tubes on my monoblock amps to see if the tubes were breaking down.For music content I give it 85% and recording 89%.

I really like this album though like some other listeners it took a while to grow on me. It's perfect late night- I had to listen to it before crashing for the night on several camping trips this summer. Basically I like all the tracks, especially "Mr Disappointment" "Differently" "Goin Home" "Dont say you love me" "She's a healer" and the title track, which is haunting. Overall laid back but very worthwhile.
