5.0 out of 5 stars YOUNGS PILL SHOULD BE ON EVERYBODYS PRESCRIPTION, 29 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Psychedelic Pill (Audio CD)
First ao all,the moan,when this was first advertised as being priced at£22.29 why do Reprise keep doing this ,the same happened with Donald Fagens new album,they charge the earth for the first few weeks,then hey presto the prices fall,and the final result?many fans left out of pocket.
This album has been availiable in parts on various websites for the last few weeks or so,and in consequence the tracks are familiar.
This according to the advertising on the front cover,is the first recording of original material in over a decade by neil young and crazy horse.
Finally before the review starts,track one lasts longer than the entire Jeff lynne album!
CD ONE(51.43)
1.....Driftin' back......Starts of with an acoustic guitar and clear vocals,than the electric guitar solo comes ,this could have been on any of Youngs classic albums ,it is that good,it has not got the drive that propelled "like a hurricane"into the stratosphere,but that doesn't matter,it is still strong.
"things that bother you drift away,to maybe return as a shadow not so big" twenty seven minutes snd thirty seven minutes long.
2.....Psychedelic pill....."Age has nothing to fo wwith having a good time,some girls are a lot older than you,but they are still girls,and carry the spirit and he torch,the dark night exists that they cannot bring light to" is a very phase heavy rock song.
3.....Ramada inn......"remembering the long grade,you tke the time to count your friend" Starts like "Hurricane" with thumping guitars and drums,this sounded great when i first heard it,it sounds even better now,long and rambling,but enthralling at the same time.
4......Born in Ontario....."When where you ar from keeps returning to you maybe its time to go back" A good old country rock song((Neil Young style to bring this Astonishing first Cd to an end,this has hilarious lyrics

CD TWO(35.58)
5......Twisted road....."Somewhere ahead your friends reach out with thier own memories.to me this has a slight resemblance to "Cowgirl in the sand2 and is a tribute to Bob Dylan.
6.....She's always dancing....."even now,though dhe's away her music fills the air,her kindness toward others lingers,she's always there she is with you". a perfect summer festival type of vibe,you could even dance to it!!
7.....For the love of man....."some things can never be understood,these are the things that keep returning making you wonder". a slower song to calm things down.
8.....Walk like a giant....."In the face of failure,when there is love,there is always hope,you might ask yourself "Why would i walk like a giant"We return to the more rockier theme,this shows Neils excellent whistling technique.
9.....Psychedelic pill......Brings the whole album to a glorious end.
This year has seen three major releases by Young,the previous two were excellent,but this astonishing five star album is even better!!!.

Good stuff - the rip off being the Blue Ray version with videos & bonus coming out on 19th November.
Americana covers wasn't excellent.
Some of the tracks are too long.
Twisted Road is no 'Cowgirl In the Sand'.
As I say could have done with a stronger editor to take off 20 minutes.

Fair point,however i would say that the length of the tracks is of secondary consideration ,when you take the quality of Youngs music which is exemplory.
At least he did not produce a 27 minute full price album like Jeff Lynne!

Fanboy convention? 5-star reviews everywhere. Pleeze. This is a good average Neil Young album no better than any of his last 20 albums. If this gets 5 stars, what would Tonight's The Night, On The Beach, Rust Never Sleeps get?

In reply to an earlier post on 30 Oct 2012 15:43:52 GMT
They would get 50 stars !

Out of five? Come on, screw your head back on and be sensible.

In reply to an earlier post on 30 Oct 2012 15:58:58 GMT
I disagree,iit is a five star album,who else produces music of this quality constantly?

Sid you are dreadful, you always steal the best points, as usual there's hardly anything I disagree with, however being 69, I can claim some of the High Ground. To me Neil always seems to do his best work with Crazy Horse and to be honest It takes me back to the early 70's and those amazing Albums of his. Keep reviewing Sid.

Sincerely Peter Walker

69 is no age at all,look at Cliff Richard he looks 109!!!!!
