5.0 out of 5 stars Stands the test of time., 25 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Zuma (Audio CD)
I bought this album when it came out, on vinyl. Neil Young had been only partly known to me - i tended to think "acoustic" and "folky", which were not the kind of words i was into at that age. John Peel said that "nothing before had prepared him for the magnificence of Zuma" or words to that effect. As a keen JP listener and admirer, i thought I'd give it a go. Fabulous! It was as rock-y and discordant in places as you could wish. The guitaring was a revelation. Great songs, love-it-or-hate-it voice/singing - which i did love. The acoustic numbers and gentler tracks were great songs too, and perfect to sing when you were having a drink with your mates. "I've been looking for a lover, but I haven't met her yet - she'll be nothing like i picture her to be." My pals all bought it too. And i haven't even mentioned "Cortez the Killer". I have listened to this track maybe 100 times. It still feels like it ends too soon and I want it to go on longer. I love the way the lyrics shift from historical/abstract to personal/love. It is quite simply a classic - yeah, I know they say that about "Stairway to Heaven", too - but this is the real deal. For me, at least. I still listen to this, after 30 years. There are only a handful of such albums.

There are plenty of very long versions of Cortez the Killer out there if you're prepared to look, especially on boots.
