Neil Young


Psychedelic Pill Reprise****

Hot on the heels of his much-touted autobiography, Waging Heavy Peace, and just short of his 67th birthday, Neil Young serves up a monumental meal of memories, marathon guitar solos, seductive tunes, reverb, echo and muscular playing over the course of this double CD.

As he ages he seems more ornery. Driftin’ Back kicks off with a little trick before settling down to the kind of guitar workout that leaves fans drooling and ears ringing. That clocks in at 27:37. The title track (3:28) is a pithy if powerful interval before Ramada Inn (16:50) resumes in-depth engagement with a tale of love, age and decay.

The compact Born in Ontario and Twisted Road refer to his past, as does the haunting For the Love of Man, but She’s Always Dancing (8:33) and the wonderful Walk Like A Giant (16:29) allow Young and sidekicks Crazy Horse to flex their muscles. He truly is one of a kind. neilyoung.comJ
