One of Neil's best. Side 2 blows side 1 away
One of Niels best! Very moody and I absolutely love the cover!!
The title track is excellent, Motion Pictures is basically perfect, but then he goes ahead and closes the album with Ambulance Blues. A perfect album closer, among the best ever, and certainly the best acoustic ballad album closer aside from Desolation Row. I might even prefer it for it's emotional impact. It's such a devastatingly beautiful song. I've literally spent hours listening to it on repeat. There are some weak moments on Side 1, but Side 2 is breathtaking.
Edit: Oops, realized this is my 2nd comment (not counting my response to another comment). I don't think I can delete it.
@junodog4 Good news! Neil in fact does like the album and it's been back in print for several years. I remember reading at one point he kept it out of print for so long because he hated the current audio technology. Guy's one of those eccentric geniuses.
Apparently Neil Young doesn't like this, and is keeping it out of print. For shame - he's wrong. One of his most stunning albums ever.
One of my fav Youngs'
Currently I like this than my other favorite Neil album, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, but they are both so brilliant. Ambulance Blues is one of the best album closers ever and rivals Desolation Row by Bob Dylan for my favorite long, moody and wordy acoustic track (another great closer of course).
Here it sounds like Neil's a bit unsettled with the world around him, but he has his bag of weed and can see that "the good times are comin'" (on "vampire blues"). I really don't know if he did weed or not (as i know he was a drunkard around then), but this album's pretty mellow no matter the chaos underneath, just as the cover art suggests. The production is bare. No matter the problems troubling his mind, he sounds like he's okay with it, that things will turn out okay, reflecting on his past of problems like staring across an ocean... from on the beach.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Took me some time to find it, but I did and it was worth the wait... so rough and depressing Neil at its finest, Ambulance Blues is one of the greatest songs you'll ever listen...
