This CD opens with a great song, the 7-minute-plus Big Time, which is then followed by a couple more 8-9 minutes tunes that aren't as memorable. Neil then drops back into more familiar folk-rock territory and the CD regains some momentum. Overall, coming quickly as it did on the heels of Neil's "Mirror Ball" highly successful experiment with Pearl Jam taking the place of Crazy Horse as Neil's backup band, "Broken Arrow" holds its own. Yeah, Crazy Horse plays it loose and sloppy at times, but that's what we love about em, right? Think "Ragged Glory" and how great that CD is! "Broken Arrow" got a lot of negative criticism for it's closing tune, a low-fi recording of Neil doing Jimmy Reed's classic, "Baby What You Want Me to Do" (remember the Shocking Pinks?). Well, I kind of like the low-tech audience recording. Yeah, Neil jams for 8-plus minutes, and you can hear glasses clankin' and folks hollerin', but all that just serves to give this a "live and raw" feel that was missing on the sterile "Unplugged." I've found that more often than not, when playing "Broken Arroww," I tend to crank up my stereo when "Baby What You Want Me to Do" comes on and use it as an excuse to become an air guitar member of Crazy Horse for 8 minutes. So, it's either something you love (that's me), or you hate (most critics). This isn't a 5-star CD, like Ragged Glory, but it's not bad at all.
