Neil Young & Crazy Horse return for their second full-length of 2012, and their first record of all-new material since 2003. The record is over an hour-and-a-half long, and opens with the 27-minute "Driftin' Back."



Disc 1:
1. Driftin' Back (27:36)
2. Psychedelic Pill (3:26)
3. Ramada Inn (16:49)
4. Born in Ontario (3:49)

Disc 2:
1. Twisted Road (3:28)
2. She's Always Dancing (8:33)
3. For the Love of Man (4:13)
4. Walk Like a Giant (16:27)
5. Psychedelic Pill (Alternate Mix) (3:32)



Anyone else give this a shot? Definitely takes an effort to get past the first track haha, but I actually am enjoying a decent amount of it on first listen.

I thought his last album, Americana, was pretty dull, save for a few decent moments.

This intrigues me though, but in general, I find long albums really daunting. I'll try and find the time to give this a shot though.

Yeah Americana fucking sucked haha. I listened to it once and was bored out of my skull.

I don't have that issue as much, but I know what you mean. I'm finding this holds my interest a lot better than Americana did honestly, despite the length.

Especially since I didn't like Le Noise or Americana.

I dunno man, give it a shot. I love Crazy Horse as a band a whole lot, but they seemed to be asleep at the wheel for a lot of Americana. This record is different, however (in my opinion at least). Haven't heard Le Noise though, but from what I know about it I doubt I'd like it.

I think this is his best album since Sleeps With Angels - maybe even Harvest Moon. And I had the lowest of low expectations.

Right? I listened to it today again and I liked it even more. I was fully expecting it to be the joke of the year haha.

Yeah, it sounded progressively more awful the more news I heard about it. But fuck me, it's rad. I still don't think the opener needed to be 27 minutes, but most everything else is golden. Classic Crazy Horse jams. Reminds me of Ragged Glory in all the best ways.

This is a pretty great review. It makes me want to read Waging Heavy Peace and then take three weeks off work and school to do nothing but sit in a chair and listen to his music.
