Customer Review

on 8 April 2002
I was slightly cautious upon purchasing this album, would I like Neil Young performing Soul music? Normally, when Neil Young deviates from either Country\Folk and grungey rock, things go horribly wrong. Needless to say, I am pleased in this case because the music is excellent. Not only are all the songs tuneful, but they feature some of Neils most heartfelt lyrics (you're my girl is quite amazingly sweet). The guitar work is fluid and surprisingly concise. So what about the songs?
'Lets Roll' is the most documented song of them all. When I first heard it, I have to admit that I didn't really like it. The beat sounded sluggish and the lyrics horribly naive. After a few listens though, Neils conviction punches through. He REALLY sounds like he means it, and the middle eight is one of the best moments of the album for me. Other standout tracks include the title track (wonderfully laid back and melancholy), 'Goin' Home' (a heady rock workout with Crazy Horse - it was great live and its great here) and 'When I hold you in my arms' (another song from the 2001 tour).
I would recommend this album to anyone, even people who wouldn't normally buy a Neil Young album. It does have some bad points, a few riffs and the odd song that should have been cut a little shorter. Generally though, it is an interesting album that grows on you with successive listens.
