However this is not for "The Heart Of Gold" people. This record is full of heavy guitars and long solos. This record is for the people that liked Zuma. The first song alone clocks in at over 20 minutes. It's Amazing how Young is making heavier records then just about anybody and he is in his mid sixties. This is a man who remains inspired.
After all is said and done I have one question? How does he get Old Black (his guitar) to sound like that! And by the way THIS RECORD SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD!!
****added note**** as another reviewer has said I to had my Blu Ray version canceled one week before it's release date. Bought off a seller for a lower price. Also just like the other reviewer this is not the first time, or in my case it's past the twentieth (over six years), that Amazon.ca has screwed up something I prebooked. One last point how come my Local Sunrirse and HMV both were able to get it. Serously it's time for amazon.ca to get a new buyer. For a company of Amazon.ca's size there is no reason they would not get stock before some of the before mentioned stores. Once again somebody dropped the ball!!
They all, for the most part, have an electric raw-in-the-studio feel and feature some fairly lengthy jams - even more so in the case of Psychedelic Pill.
Greendale reached greater heights with songs like Bandit but I also felt that album ran out of gas musically near the end whereas Psychedelic Pill is consistent throughout, which is an achievement considering this is a two-disk set.
For my tastes, this is Neil's best release in more than 10 years, at least since Silver & Gold.
I doubt many reviewers will mention this, but the album was recorded on analogue tape through a 1960s soundboard with tubes in it! He talks about this in his book. It's part of his ongoing battle to bring back a lost aesthetic in sound recording. And whatever one thinks about the analogue vs digital debate, there is definitely a warmer, textured feel to this CD than most other new CDs. I happened to put on the 1990 CD of Ragged Glory after listening to this one, a DDD recording, and it sounded harsh and abrasive by comparison.
I cancelled my vinyl pre-order and ordered both the blu-ray and vinyl from Warner Music (neilyoung.com). This is not the first time I have been messed around by amazon.ca on pre-orders, so be warned.

hey its neil with crazy horse still cooks after many years!!!Published 9 months ago by michael dixon
Great 3LP set for the money, lot's of heavy distortion riffage here, a couple tracks are a bit repetitive but very good overall, similar to Greendale but for a lot less $$Published on Jan. 3 2014 by Blair Wright
There are many faces of Neil. This incarnation is not "singles" Neil or "folky" Neil or "country" Neil or "experimental" Neil; this is rambling,... Read morePublished on Dec 13 2013 by anglophile
Neil Young's track record is both long and hard to top. Some of the songs on here wander in and out of just being a lot of noise (I was so fond of you, Walk Like a Giant! Read morePublished on May 15 2013 by LanthonyS
Very Greendale'ish. The Horse is right there. Excellent listen, you won't be disappointed. Neil seems to be able to plug into the soul again and again.Published on April 24 2013 by Duke
