Life in the Old Man Yet,
This review is from: Living With War (Audio CD)
Neil Young's politics have sometimes been dubious and his wavering between left and right wing views has often been displayed in his songwriting (Ohio,Rockin in the Free World,Lets Roll etc), but here he gives it to you straight !
But even if you disagree with his views (unlikely I think as he's pretty much preaching to the converted) , you can't fail to be impressed by the energy and life in this music.
What an indictment of the current music scene that its left to this gnarled old hippie to take a stand and put his opposition to the Bush regime into song.
The music will appeal to fans of Crazy Horse Neil rather than mellow country Neil and on tracks like Lets Impeach The President,Living With War,and Flags Of Freedom the music carries the message superbly.
For my money's worth this is his best since Ragged Glory.
