A listening experience
on 22 February 2004
Broken Arrow is one of my favourite Neil Young records. It's dark and brooding, yet is an illuminating and rewarding listening experience. The first three songs all end on hypnotic one chord jams, full of the sloppyness that makes Crazy Horse for me so appealing. Final song 'Baby What You Want Me To Do' was recorded live with just one mic and... I dunno... it just captures something that a standard soundboard recording would have missed. I felt I was at the show it was taped at, I felt I was there.
Broken Arrow is perhaps not the most accessible Neil record but any fan of Cortez and the like might be interested.
