To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Many of the reviewers have queried the need for this album, given other live releases at the time, but to me, it is utterly justified.
The album has a different feel and 'vibe' to other live releases. The track listing is interesting and all the songs are delivered with the consummate professionalism you would expect from Young and Crazy Horse.
Sonically, it is a good recording and as a double album package, represents great value.
A lot of reviewers knock this album for being boring, but if you like the sound of Neil and the Horse putting the foot down for an hour and twenty minutes then you'll like this frankly awesome set. OK, it's no Weld, but how could anything match that monster? Year of the Horse is a solid rocker from start to finish, which is just what I want from Neil Young and Crazy Horse. It's cheap and it delivers in spades. Highly recommended!
