Neil Young is angry. As the title suggests, this time around the subject of his ire is corporate greed. More

Aug 05, 2011

This knockoff, straight-to-DVD style documentary is very low-rent, but has some merits by tracing Neil Young's many influences. The Godfather of Grunge once likened himself to a sponge and Here We Are In the Years: Neil Young's Music Box bears that statement out again and again...and again. More

In 1984 and ’85, Neil Young was in the middle of the “experimental” stage in his career. In ’82, he released Trans, his vocoder-filled electro-rock album, and a year later saw the fruition of his rockabilly project,Everybody’s Rockin’. Then in 1985, Young released Old Ways, an album featuring a traditional country sound and collaborations with such musicians as Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. More

For people who can't stand Neil Young, who find his voice grating, his guitar screechy and disjointed, After the Gold Rush is the album they should most definitely avoid. Young detractors can also point to the issues with "Southern Man" since, well, Lynryrd Skynyrd already did (and who wouldn't want to be on that side of that argument?). More

Perhaps Neil Young's most famous album, 1972's Harvest contains songs that belong in any time capsule of rock 'n' roll, the kinds of songs that can be found in jukeboxes in seedy bars as well as on iPods of hipster kids and the record collections of their parents. It features the only number one hit of Young's career, "Heart of Gold." More

Dec 17, 2009

Gnashing guitar punctuated with snappy hand claps and crisp drumming explode out of the speakers to begin "Cinnamon Girl," and it stands as one of the best, most immediate openings to an album ever. The song is ferocious, and sets the tone for Neil Young's first album with Crazy Horse, his on and off backing band for the last 40 years. More

These days Neil Young has taken to releasing albums whenever and however frequently he chooses. Goodness knows, he's earned the right. In a career that is creeping up on five decades, Young has firmly established himself as the ultimate artist and a cornerstone of rock and roll, perhaps second only to Bob Dylan in terms of artistic integrity, songwriting excellence, and continued musical and cultural relevance.
