Nott one of his best, only a choice if you like country
on 24 September 2003
Neil Young is notoriously patchy. Often one album is fantastic, only to be followed by an awful one. Whilst this is not truly awful, it's definitely not good.
There are some defintive classic tracks on this - Like a Hurricane and Star of Bethlehem, closely followed by Bite the Bullet. But in truth, that's about it.
Unless of course you are a fan of country & western, because that's the real flavour of this album, rather than his trademark gritty folk/rock blend.
One to avoid I think, or a late addition to the collection if you are a completist.
