Rockin' 1990 album with CRAZY HORSE back in the saddle! Features"Fuckin Up", "Mansion On The Hill" & "Mother Earth"
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

On these musical odysseys Neil Young clearly hears something we do not----perhaps sirens luring him ever closer to a point of no return beyond the White Line. Perhaps he fastens a manacle around his ankle, chaining himself to Mother Earth and tells Crazy Horse to follow me. Like Odysseus'crew, oblivious to the siren's lure, Crazy Horse takes to their instruments, propelling Mr. Young along, as he fires electric salvos Over and Over (and Over and Over, and Over and Over) in homage to his muse.
Poor Crazy Horse valiantly labor to keep up as they construct the musical scaffolding that Mr. Young repeatedly ascends. This music will not conjure up images of a rustic Country Home set among manicured gardens but it will rattle the windows in the home.
This music is fun in the same way a mosquito zapper brings joy when you hear that loud "zppppttt" sound and perhaps see a flash of blue light should you be in the right place! Ahhh, the pleasures of Ragged Glory!!

This is one of my favourite Neil and Crazy Horse albums. Every song is good. A good one to take when I go driving in my car.Published on April 13 2013 by E Walmsley
The songwriting here is excellent and there are plenty of guitar solos with Neil at his from the gut, turn it to 11 feedback best. Read morePublished on Dec 18 2004 by Kilgore
Neil of course has many sounds, accoustic, electronic and pure guitar turned up to feeback levels raunch. This last sound is why he is called the godfather of grundge. Read morePublished on Dec 18 2004
This is by far Neil's best album, with or without Crazy Horse. The lyrics are typically inane, but who cares when the guitars rock this hard? Read morePublished on June 28 2004 by Tommy Gunn
this is a great cd from start to finish i dont have any complaints about any song. The highlight of the cd is Mother earth which i realley love.Published on March 14 2004 by Patricia Govoni
This is Neil Young and Crazy Horse in their finest hour. From the very first chords of Country Home, the Horse grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go. Read morePublished on March 5 2004 by Michael Crane Gross
What can I say nice about this cd? Well, nothing actually, from the scratchy guitar, moronic lyrics, and crappy singing of Young this cd is a complete stinker. Read morePublished on March 5 2004
Having just reviewed the so-mellow-you-may-not-find-a-pulse _Comes a Time_ (and given it five stars), I'm now switching to the other end of the Neil Young spectrum and reviewing... Read morePublished on Sept. 24 2003 by John S. Ryan
