Chrome Dreams II - Review by MOTU [...]

Neil Young’s latest effort shows a mature artist getting older and drawing upon past creative styles for expression. The album contains ten (10) new Neil Young songs and runs just a little over sixty-six minutes. The songs cover a variety of styles that Young has been comfortable with ranging from acoustic Harvest Moon type to harder Crazy Horse type material. Like most of Neil Young’s recent works, I found that I had to listen to it at least twice to digest it and form any opinion of it.

The CD opens with Beautiful Bluebird which is an effective acoustic type song that has a striking slide resonator guitar lead throughout giving it a blues dimension. However, the song remains vintage Young and is a good attention catching opening to the CD. The second song; Boxcar; follows this acoustic Harvest Moon type style that is set in the first song with a banjo providing the key background instrument. That is where the mood of this CD ends because the third song; Ordinary People; bursts the acoustic mood with a rock sound more like Crazy Horse. You also get the sense that Young may be looking to break some kind of rock song record as Ordinary People runs well over 18 minutes! Time aside, the song flows well and like a good movie seems to be far shorter than it really is. The fourth song; Shining Light; then gives the listener a retro fifties type feel only to be followed by another Crazy Horse style rock song; Spirit Road.

In general, I didn’t find Chrome Dreams II cohesive as a total work. On a first listen, it does not knock your socks off the way some of Young’s past classic albums succeeded in doing on the first play. However, there are some real great individual songs here if you are willing to give it a chance. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best), I give it a 7.

It's all good, with a mix of styles. Some songs rock like Ragged Glory and some are mellow like Prairie Wind. It doesn't get 5 stars from me 'cause it's not the most cohesive album and I'm not sure why Ordinary People needs to be 18 minutes long. Great song regardless of it's length though. Great album. Thanks Neil!

You wouldn't think that Neil Young would only get better with age, but he has. You'd think that his best work would be behind him, but not so. And after the poor showing of the 2006 album many will shy away from his songs. But CHROME DREAMS II has got to be one of the best things he's ever done. I loved it. Not a bad song in the bunch!
