This is not a classic Neil Young album, this is a LONG Neil Young album. What is it about this guy that material that would have gotten other musicians burned at the critical stake somehow gets hailed as solid gold when he does it? Nonetheless, the disc has it's moments; the way-wierd BLUE EDEN is one of Young and Crazy Horse's better grunge jams, as is CHANGE YOUR MIND; WESTERN HERO and TRAIN OF LOVE are two parts of the same song and have all of the attributes we've come to know of Young in that mode; and then there's one bonafide gem, A DREAM THAT CAN LAST, definetely one of the man's prettiest.
Neil Young gets away with murder, let's be honest. More often than not, he also gets away with some good music.
