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 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 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 Young Driftin' Back To His Best 10 Jan 2014
By Zico
Format:Audio CD
Neil Young triumphantly returns to the style of music from his best period of the likes of Zuma, American Stars 'n Bars and Rust Never Sleeps. The whole experience is a delight and a bit of a surprise. Don't let the length of some of the tracks put you off, it is wonderful. The stories are vintage Young and the guitar work is exemplary. Check out the variety in pace and length but I promise you will not be bored. This album was produced at the same sessions as Americana apparently and it shows. The Horse have seldom been tighter, bass lines so strong and the harmonies are striking. Buy it, especially if you are a Neil fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album 15 Jun 2013
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big Neil Young fan... there's no denying it, and I love all his work with Crazy Horse, live and studio. I enjoy his acoustic stuff too, but Weld is higher up my list than Harvest - just to give some context to this review. That said, I'm not the type to big up all his work, 5 stars for everything and all that. I have owned all his albums at some point (LPs of Buffalo Roam, JTTP and TFA included) and some I've gotten rid of (Hawks & Doves, Passionate etc.), I enjoyed Le Noise, I didn't enjoy Chrome Dreams 2 and Living with War. I like Re-ac-tor and Zuma, I don't so much like Stars N Bars and Freedom.

But this album... one of the few that on first listen I knew it was going to be one of his best, and it really is. I enjoyed Americana, and appreciate Crazy Horse played on that too, but this feels like the reunion. Americana was the warm up with some great tunes, but here they have found their voice with melodies on almost all the songs that range from the raw of Welfare Mothers, to the harmony of Mother Earth.

The songs:

Driftin' Back - Weighs in at just short of 28 minutes, and is a wonderful transient tune and melody that you can listen to, daze to, work to, or sleep to. The lyrics aren't up to much... they reference his book and gripe with music quality here and there, but that's Neil! It's a strange choice as opener to the album, baring in mind that this song is longer than the whole of Everybody's Rockin' and won't fit on one side of an LP, but it kind of works and it doesn't feel like an effort.

Psychedelic Pill - The 21st century Cinnamon Girl. The tune is almost the identical to 'Sign of Love' from Le Noise, and put to much better use here. A really great semi-synthetic rock-out tune.

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.

First ao all,the moan,when this was first advertised as being priced at£22.29 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.....
