Not the return to form you are led to believe I'm afraid,
This review is from: Freedom (Audio CD)
To summarise, this record is for two kinds of Young appreciators. 1 - Completists, for those who just want all of his records/listenable records. 2 - Those who think Harvest Moon was his best 90's record. Realistically, a large element of this album is Neil making socio-political commentary, and he is not the greatest lyricist or thinker to pull that off. The rest is quite soppy. The highlights are 'too far gone', a throwback to his late 70's period, which provides the improvement in the second side of the record. Put it this way, Trans and Reactor are better than this one if you are interested in 80's Young

Utter, utter nonsense. It was a great return to form after the vocoder nonsense of Trans et al. It's worth buying for "Eldorado" alone!

Got to admit - this is one of my favourites. What an odd review. All the evidence would seem to point to a large collection of great songs....

I have all NY's albums and this is my favourite. It has an atmosphere and a mood about it which I think takes it head and shoulders above the others, much as I love many of them. Only Tonight's the Night' and 'After The Goldrush' come close for me.

although it's now not one of my favourite neil albums, it still has many great songs on it.. it was a great return to form at the time of its release but was pushed aside when the mighty Ragged Glory arrived a year later..
