Still in Love after all these years,
This review is from: Silver & Gold (Audio CD)
This album is a real slow burner. At first the songs seem naive and simple, with Neil spending a lot of time eulogising about getting old and still loving his wife and family. But that's the point. After a few listens you realise that it's that simplicity which is this album's beauty. Songs like Silver & Gold and the stunning Razor Love (possibly his greatest song of the last 15 years) soon go straight to your heart once the delicate melodies and Neil's soft, vulnerable voice settle in your ears. For sure, it's a huge contrast to the Godfather of Grunge we know and love from the Crazy Horse albums, but Neil has always been so much more than that and this album sits very comfortably alongside Comes A Time, Harvest Moon and Harvest. And if you love those then you really should hear this. A warm, gentle record.
