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.
Neil and Crazy Horse are back with a rip snorting,high octane recording. With Nils Lofgren replacing Frank Samoedro, the fit is almost seamless. Neil's lyrics are stronger than recent releases and guitar playing as Good as ever.
I’m frankly amazed by some of the negative reviews for this album. To my ears this is prime Neil Young. Whether you like his softer lyrical songs or his guitar strangling rocky side you will find plenty to enjoy here. One of the reviewers even described this as ‘another substandard Neil Young’ album. Well I don’t know what they have been listening to but it surely can’t have been Colorado. It would be a shame if such nonsense put anyone off buying this great album. All of the tracks are good but if I had to pick favourites then I would have to mention ‘She Showed Me Love’ with it’s very long blistering guitar solo, or ‘Green Is Blue’ with it’s haunting melody and message. Another track worthy of special mention is ‘Milky Way’ which is just beautiful. This album is up there with his best. Don’t be put off by those who listened but didn’t hear.
Neil Young der Musiker macht Musik ganz altmodisch mit richtigen Instrumenten - manchmal rumpelt es, manchmal kratzt und fiept es - aber so will er es - und so wollen es seine Fans! Rockmusik à la NY ! So ist auch diese Platte kein Neuanfang sondern ein weiteres Kapitel in seinem Schaffenskatalog - von Leise (Think of me, I do) bis Laut (Shut it down) und Lang (She showed me Love) Hier findet man viel - nur keine Spotify Musik - und das ist auch gut so! Ok - die Vinyl Version finde ich auch zu teuer. Save the b-side
I don't know what some of the reviewers have been listening to but to me this album is as good as anything he has done in the past, both solo and with Crazy Horse. My only gripe is that it is too short but that seems to be the norm these days. Ignore the bad reviews, listen and make up your own mind.
