5.0 out of 5 stars r-r-r-r-r-r-r-repitition June 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is one of Neil's best albums. I prefer the rock side of NY's work, such as Zuma and Ragged Glory. If your like me, and love lengthy guitar solos and distortion than you will really like this cd. Neil was going for repitition on this album and he definately got his message across. All the songs are awesome, but my favorite would have to be T-Bone, which has excellent guitar. Neil shows his rocking side on this album and there are plenty of his unique solos.

5.0 out of 5 stars man.y de.ci.bels May 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
There is a certain segment of Neil Young's fan base that is in it primarily for the decibels. They want to hear "Hey Hey My My", not "My My Hey Hey". They want Crazy Horse, and it better not be 'Greendale'. While I share their passion, I do have a corresponding affinity for much of Young's kinder and gentler fare, such as 'Comes a Time'. There does come a time, however, when the mood strikes for something striking, and nothing can strike that chord like Neil's 're.ac.tor'. In that sense, this may well be Neil's most underrated effort. Indeed, it is not difficult to find people who would place this disc in an inferno, creating a disc.oh! in.fer.no!
're.ac.tor' is an explosive chain reaction (since there is no song called 're.ac.tor' on the disc, one must speculate on the significance of the title, including it's syllabled graphic style, and absence of capital letters, which may symbolize being broken down to essential elements; the song titles receive the same curious treatment). The cover is odd and striking, a bold red sideways pyramid flanked top and bottom by black panels. I suppose it conveys contained, yet invasive heat, another good analogy for the aural content within. The 1981 release of 're.ac.tor' followed the 1980 release of Young's 'Hawks and Doves' almost one year to the day, another album with a similarly simple yet symbolic cover, a large white star surrounded by blue background.
While 'Hawks and Doves' embraced a patriotic theme, 're.ac.tor' embraces everything hedonistic. Drugs and rock open things up in 'op.er.a star'; "women", "booze" and "a pleasure cruise" are the tangible elements in 'surf.

5.0 out of 5 stars my introduction to N. Young Feb. 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't understand why so many people must feel so submissive to professional critics about this CD. I was eighteen when I began a long "friendship" with N. Young's music, and it started with this CD (Then LP). And, by the way, it was a very demanding introduction. It is not an easy album, I agree. But one feels that these songs come from a very special mind. Like starting to listen Zappa from Joe's garage, or something.

This has always been one of my favorate albums by Neil Young. Highly underrated. Neil is back in full force with Crazy Horse after recording Hawks and Doves. Re ac tor rocks from begining to end and never misses a beat. Great to see it released in CD form now.

1.0 out of 5 stars Neil Young's Worst Album? Nov. 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
One can only hope that "Rapid Transit" and "T-Bone" are self-parody. I read that his major concern when the album was Re*Cord*Ed was to play the "Loudest f***ing thing" that he could. If you want to complete your Young collection, I recommend making this one your last purchase. There are too many good ones to waste your money on this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Monster Thrash Oct. 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
Neil Young again throws a curve ball by following up his acoustic and country album Hawks & Doves with 1981's thrashing Re.ac.tor. The album, like its predecessor, was universally panned by the critics upon its release. While the album was definitely thrown together as the last album to fulfill his Warner contract, it captures the raw and trashy energy of Crazy Horse. The songs are clearly just thrown together with little or no lyrical cohesion, but the pure energy and power of the band makes up for any lack of creativity. The epitome of this is song "T-Bone" which repeats the same line about mashed potatoes and t-bones over and over for nine plus minutes. But despite the inane lyric, the band's crashing and crunching riffs are mesmerizing. The album's final song "Shots" is another standout with a riveting and threatening vibe. For the most part, Re.ac.tor is a hodge-podge of an album and really only for Neil Young aficionados.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loud, Rude and well, Neil Oct. 14 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
One of my favorite Neil albums (along with On the Beach) reissued. While not necessarily his greatest lyrics, the theme SERENITY runs throughout. Crazy Horse rocks hard and loud, more so than anything else between Live Rust and Ragged Glory. Often lumped in with horrible "Life" album, this is NY&CH at some of their best.
