Product Description

Product Description

Psychedelic Pill sees Neil Young and Crazy Horse follow up their previous release Americana, with another new album that was recorded around the same time as its predecessor. Produced by Young, John Hanlon and Mark Humphreys, the album features eight tracks and a bonus track across two discs. The format is largely due to the length of some tracks, including "Driftin' Back", which lasts for almost a full half hour, or "Ramada Inn" and "Walk Like a Giant", both longer than 16 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real Neil Young gem 29 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent Neil Young album, which is a relief to be able to say because I didn't think much of Americana, his last one. This album, like Americana, features Crazy Horse but is a completely different piece of work and it's terrific - in places I think it comes close to his best, which makes it something really special.

The overall sound and feel is vintage Neil Young. There are the hauntingly melancholy tunes, the thoughtful, quirky lyrics and the great chord sequences which made albums like Harvest and After The Goldrush so great, combined with the controlled, distortion-driven power of the brilliant Rust Never Sleeps. (Am I showing my age here?) This album is also a reminder of what a great band Crazy Horse are. The sound is terrific, there is some great guitar work and they are tight and gutsy so even Born In Ontario, the only slightly weak song on the album, still sounds really good.

Neil Young is often meditating on experience and aging here, but he still sounds young and fresh and still has more power and guts than a lot of artists half his age. Several of the tracks are very long; Driftin' Back lasts nearly half an hour and other tracks are over 15 minutes. This, of course, is typical Neil Young - refusing to bow to convention and doing whatever makes musical sense to him at the time. He has always done this and it can be dreadful (it sometimes has been in the past) but nearly all the time here it's great. The huge Ramada Inn is a masterpiece in my view, and more conventional shorter tracks like Twisted Road may well end up in the list of Neil Young Classics.

There is little self-indulgence and a huge amount of real musical substance. Driftin' Back could perhaps do with a little trimming, but it's still a really good track.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect analogue recording 10 Jan 2013
By ian
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
If you want to discover what AAA (Analogue tape recording, Analogue mixed, Analogue Mastered)recordings are all about then buy the vinyl copy of this superb album. The sound quality and music are fantastic. Who needs MP3 anyhow(for the car maybe!!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar meatfeast 27 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great album if you love Neil's guitar playing. His voice still sounds just like it did over 40 years ago. 3 of the songs clock in over a quarter of an hour long each, but they are all great. You lose track of the time. In fact there's no dead weight on the whole double album. Crazy Horse sound better than ever. Buy the album, do not download it - Neil hates the poor quality from MP3s: You only get 5% of what he puts in. If you buy it, you get it all.
Only one problem: the print in the lyric booklet is so tiny that I need perfect light to read it. Most people I know would need reading glasses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good album, and includes a classic Young song! 16 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
I won't rave - as others have done - and start comparing this with his finest work. It would be nigh on impossible for him to match the glory of Everybody Knows, Zuma, Rust etc. But the last fifteen years or so have seen some valiant efforts giving us occasional glimpses that somewhere inside Young's untapped genius was another classic song to rank alongside Cowgirl/Hurricane/Cortez etc. Greendale's 'Be the Rain' came close, as did Living With War's 'Flags of Freedom'. But here, on this new album underpinned by his desire to eke every last drop of blood out of his old guitar, Neil finds a track to sit up there alongside his greatest efforts. Track three 'Ramada Inn' is quite simply magnificent, a vague tale of a couple growing old and overcoming problems together, the listener can apply it to whoever he wants, Neil is not in preaching mode, just allowing us to be carried along with his finest guitar work since possibly Down By The River and sing along with the simple chorus 'He loves her so, he does what he has to'. An immense tune, a great song. Thanks Neil, looking forward to the Stuttgart gig in July!

Format:Audio CD
First ao all,the moan,when this was first advertised as being priced at22.29 why do Reprise keep doing this ,the same happened with Donald Fagens new album,they charge the earth for the first few weeks,then hey presto the prices fall,and the final result?many fans left out of pocket.
This album has been availiable in parts on various websites for the last few weeks or so,and in consequence the tracks are familiar.
This according to the advertising on the front cover,is the first recording of original material in over a decade by neil young and crazy horse.
Finally before the review starts,track one lasts longer than the entire Jeff lynne album!
CD ONE(51.43)
1.....Driftin' back......Starts of with an acoustic guitar and clear vocals,than the electric guitar solo comes ,this could have been on any of Youngs classic albums ,it is that good,it has not got the drive that propelled "like a hurricane"into the stratosphere,but that doesn't matter,it is still strong.
"things that bother you drift away,to maybe return as a shadow not so big" twenty seven minutes snd thirty seven minutes long.
2.....Psychedelic pill....."Age has nothing to fo wwith having a good time,some girls are a lot older than you,but they are still girls,and carry the spirit and he torch,the dark night exists that they cannot bring light to" is a very phase heavy rock song.
3.....Ramada inn......"remembering the long grade,you tke the time to count your friend" Starts like "Hurricane" with thumping guitars and drums,this sounded great when i first heard it,it sounds even better now,long and rambling,but enthralling at the same time.
4......Born in Ontario.....

Yes, this is a great album but I'm stuck in the past and really want more acoustic Neil with some mad Crazy Horse thrown in.
