5.0 out of 5 stars Massively underrated 14 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is brilliant. Despite having bought most of NY's other albums, I'd never bought this one because I had believed the stories about the Geffen period being rubbish and had believed all the lukewarm reviews. So I bought it and haven't stopped playing it since. There are lots of classic NY songs on here, and even the not-so-great ones are still far, far better than the critics would have you believe. Don't believe the lazy cliches - buy it and see what I mean.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent 8 Oct 2001
Format:Audio CD
Tracks 1,4,8 = Excellent.
Tracks 2,9 = Very Good.
Tracks 3,7 = Good.
Track 5 = Average.
Track 6 = Poor.
This album is an interesting mix of its Predecessor, the synth led 'Landing on Water', and the classic Crazy Horse sound present on 'Rust Never Sleeps', 'Zuma' etc. This works to staggering effect on songs such as 'Mideast Vacation' and 'When Your Lonely Heart Breaks' but tracks like 'Prisoners of Rock 'n' Roll' and 'Too Lonely' sound more at home on 'The Transformers the Movie' sound track. The album would probably warrant 4 stars if it weren't for these two tracks which disrupt the feel of the album set by the very strong quartet at the start. 'Inca Queen' is a classic song in the mold of 'Cowgirl in the Sand' and 'Cortez the killer', but i would recommend the album just for 'Mideast vacation' and 'When the lonely heart breaks'. The latter is an example of how Young can take an already tried and tested formula and give it a new lease of life - i even admit that I have shed a tear to this beautiful song. This is an interesting album and is a good buy, but it is not a patch at all on 'Sleeps with Angels', 'Rust never sleeps', 'Zuma', 'Everybody Knows This is nowhere'. These albums I would recommend to a first buyer of Young and Crazy Horse, and I'd recommend this to any Neil Young fan who doesn't have it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Neil Finds His Feet Again? 7 Sep 2000
By Joe
Format:Audio CD
Many Neil fans see Life as the start of his comeback. After five years of experimental and controversial albums, this record saw him firmly back in Neil & Crazy Horse mode. A welcome reunion after their public falling-out a few years earlier. The rockers Too Lonely and Cryin Eyes are perfectly fine without being great - and that pretty much sums up the whole album. When it's good, such as on the flag-waving opener Mideast Vacation and the delicate closer We Never danced, it is because the rest of the album is merely average. Long Walk Home is a ballad as saccahrine as Prisoners of Rock 'n' Roll is daft. Inca Queen is the acoustic epic he has done better elsewhere and Around The World is, frankly, a bit of a mess. A return to form then? Hardly, but many of us felt he'd never lost it anyway. This is probably the sound of two estranged parties feeling each other out again. There are many far better Neil albums than this one.....

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars would be fairer 30 Aug 2009
By Little Cat Voom TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
3 stars always seems harsh for a NY album. But "Prisoners of Rock `n` Roll" is such a poor and cliched song, despite it`s obvious critical target being the totally deserving David Geffen, that you couldn`t award 4 stars. "We Never Danced" is just too syrupy, as is "Inca Queen" (a shame, as the subject has been so well-addressed by Neil in the past, obviously with "Cortez The Killer", but also on the less-acclaimed "Like An Inca", from Trans).

"Mideast Vacation" is a great opener though, one of the best songs Neil produced in the 80s, the nearest we have got to the dark side since the ditch trilogy, and particularly, "Revolution Blues". "When Your Lonely Heart Breaks" is also such a powerful and dramatic ballad that you would have to be mad not to be moved by it. These songs possibly edge it above a mid-to-low ranking NY album...but the rest of the songs are, well, pretty average, occasionally dipping above that and occasionally below. ("Long Walk Home" is a good example of this. It seems like it might be great, but then rather loses pace and falls flat).

It`s worth a listen, now and again, but isn`t really quite what you might want from Neil and Crazy Horse. By any other artist you`d be raving about it for weeks. It`s all relative.
