Product Description


After a long period of unfocused weirdness, Young spotted grunge around the corner and declared unity with the loud, scruffy sounds coming from Seattle. The countryish ballads, such as the opening "Farmer John", get roaring Crazy Horse treatment, and the headbanging "Fuckin' Up" is the most self-effacing rock anthem since the Who recorded "I'm a Boy". Amid the clatter, though, there is beauty: Crazy Horse's sympathetic backup vocals turn "Mansion on the Hill" into a pretty pop song despite the electric guitars, and even the white noise that closes the 1990 album is soothing in a scream-therapy kind of way. --Steve Knopper

In the first chapter of the grunge and garage Bible, it is written that Neil told his followers to turn the amps up to 11. But master, said his disciples, "the amps only go to 10". When they looked back down, the amps had miraculously been turned way past 10. In the next chapter, Neil told his disciples to lay down a mostly country music style backbeat, and they did. But, the scripture from the gospel according to Neil that is most widely quoted among those preaching his gospel to this day is the one where he proclaimed "You will play till your fingers bleed, and then you will play some more!!". Make no mistake, this is the holy scripture of any band that even has a remote connection to garage or grunge. While there are many musicians preaching the scripture according to Neil today, no one will ever be able to replicate the feeling of Ragged Glory. It will stand as a testament for generations to come on how massive double lead electric guitar rock is supposed to sound. This CD may sit in the CD stack unplayed for periods at a time, but it's always going to sound glorious, just as the title implies. There isn't a bad song on the album. You'll be looking for that proverbial "11" on your stereo too.

Being a big Neil Young fan, I picked up this album. I had heard that it is some of his best work, and arguably his heaviest. When I heard the album, it turned out that everything I heard about it was true.
Neil Young & Crazy Horse have always been the best garage band imaginable since their first album together, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. This album is full of raw songs, many extending past the 5-minute mark. Some of Neil's best lead guitar-playing ever can be found here. Ragged Glory is chock full of great songs and garage jams.
The album's opener, "Country Home," could have worked very well as a country song, likewise "White Line," the song that follows. But here, they are transformed into rocking, raw, grunge tunes with everyone in the band, especially Neil, kicking serious butt. "Mansion On the Hill" is sure to be included on the next Neil Young retrospective. Only these guys can take a simple 3-chord riff and do something with it. This was the single release from the album, and it's easy to see why, as it is easily the catchiest tune on the record. "F*!#in' Up" is pure Neil Young angst, with all four boys rocking hard and playing their hearts out. The two songs that pass the 10-minute mark, "Love To Burn" and "Love And Only Love" are classic epic Neil Young, much like "Down By The River" and "Cowgirl In the Sand" from Everybody Knows..., and "Cortez the Killer" and "Dangerbird" from Zuma. "Love to Burn" is based on a chord progression somewhat reminiscent of his recent hit "Rocking In the Free World," though not a blatant copy. Both "Love" songs contain awesome guitar playing from Neil. The album's closer, "Mother Earth (Natural Anthem)" is taken from a live recording, and recalls Jimi Hendrix's classic treatment of "The Star Spangled Banner" from Woodstock.

OK, Freedom told us that Neil's experimental phase was coming to an end. "No More," right. Well he proves that there's no more exploration of odd genres and the Neil Young and Crazy Horse that we waited almost a decade for had finally returned. With classic fuzz guitar, sloppy playing, off-beat drumming, missed chords and all that make Neil and Crazy Horse so fun, this album just rocks from beginning to end. Highlights include Neil's questioning, "F----ing Up," Over and Over, a solid Love to Burn, a great Days that Used to Be, and a stunning closer of Mother Earth. I love "Everybody Knows This is Nowhere" and it's easily my favorite Neil Young album, but for sheer energy and pedal-to-the-metal rock 'n' roll, "Ragged Glory" comes in a close second. This album blasted onto the scene right as grunge was making its arrival in the early '90s, and the similarity in musical emotion over technical mastery helped give Neil the (perhaps unwanted) title of "grandfather of grunge." With the exception of Nirvana's "Nevermind," no grunge band produced an album with the power and intensity of "Ragged Glory." Glory is right! This CD is GLORIOUS in its affirmation that rock 'n' roll was still alive -- and so was Neil Young!

I love Neil Young, and when you have a musician who seems to improve with every album, or who is practically a musical shape-shifter like Neil Young who seems just as comfortable rocking out as he does strumming his acoustic folk. This album is very heavy on rocking out, and that is a real treat to Neil's fans. Obviously Neil has many followers, in fact Pearl Jam plays some of his songs pretty frequently in their concerts, including the song "F@#king Up" which is a standout track on this album. This album sounds like a group of friends (which all happen to be gifted musicians) joined together in a garage, turned up the amps, and tried to ... off the neighbors. It has Neil's loose feel to it, after all, only Neil could have recorded this album. I Even though it isn't his most well known, you will love it especially if you like his rock side, or even if you are a fan of Pearl Jam or Nirvana, cause there are elements of his music in both those bands. If you are looking to get into Neil Young, this is the perfect place to start, and if you like Neil Young, there is no reason not to have this album. It's really remarkable that a musician like Neil can stay relevant for so long. His albums from the sixties are just as important as his albums now, and just as good. ...this album is just as good as his stuff in the 80's 70's and 60's. He really hasn't lost a step, and he truly is a living legend. Great Album.
