Non ci voleva molto a capire che Neil Young con l'elettronica, la dance, il rockabilly, le tastiere modaiole non c'entrava niente. Ecco qua Neil Young back in action: un'ora di musica ( qualche lungaggine di troppo, in effetti ), nessuna pretesa di sconvolgere il mondo con chissà quale trovata e la sorpresa di sconvolgerlo, il mondo, con un album come non gli riusciva da dieci anni e come non gli sarebbe riuscito più.

Not spectacular, but certainly the best Neil Young album since, rust never sleeps. Rockin' in the free world is one of Young's greatest ever songs. The rest isn't bad either.

After 6 rather disappointing studio albums in the 80's he left Geffen records and returned to Reprise and a great return to form with this album. Great album there are elements of rock, folk, country everything Neil Young is good at.

Junodog sums it up very well. Another great Neil album, arguably amongst the 10 best of his career to date.

Neil snaps out of his 80s funk. No more experiments to alienate the record companies, no more exploring new musical styles, no homages. Just simple straight forward rock and roll. His best since Live Rust.
