This review is from: Psychedelic Pill (Audio CD)
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.

Isn't the fact that we all need specs to read the sleeve notes a factor of the vintage of Neil Young fans? At least on the early releases there was a decent expanse of paper to fill, 144 square inches for the vinyl albums!

Good point. I wonder if Neil ever read the booklet himself. I can read it unaided in good light, but I doubt that most of Neil's fans can.

Well, there is a bit of dead weight in the album. It's the last 5 minutes of Walk Like a Giant which is just unnecessary noise. A bit of a pointless way to end a fabulous track. Sadly, live, this section is even longer and even more pointless. But hey, who's complaining? It's an amazing album with some brilliant tunes and amazing guitar playing.
