Neil is back. I was so pumped when I heard a year ago that Neil Young was doing a new record with Crazy Horse. I thought Americana from earlier this year was excellent. I didn't think it would be because of the songs but I forgot how good Neil and the Horse are. This is a double album. Like Ragged Glory was suppose to be (they made "Don't Spook The Horse" a b-side to stop the album from needing to be on two CD's). This record reminds me of the before mentioned Ragged Glory but it also sounds like "Broken Arrow" or "Sleeps With Angels" actually this record would have fit in the early 90's no problem.
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!!

Not a bad offering from Neil. Not his best work by a long shot but still entertaining. The gatefold sleeve is high end and the 200 g vinyl is beautiful. His albums are always high end stuff which is why they are so expensive.

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! Why end in three minutes of pounding??), but others are sheer rock excellence (like, well, the first eleven minutes of Walk Like a Giant).

There are many faces of Neil. This incarnation is not "singles" Neil or "folky" Neil or "country" Neil or "experimental" Neil; this is rambling, gritty, album rock at its finest. Call it garage jam Neil.

So many textures here, it rewards the listener with its life affirming exuberance.

I love his style....it brings me back to the old days of "Down by the River" and "Cowgirl in the sand" can't get enough of it.

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 $$

Good solid rock from one of the best bands ever. The first song is a lenghty ramble with some great guitar work. Overall a consistent set reminisent of Greendale and Ragged glory.
