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!
