see, this kind of thing is why it can be rather hard for us anti-capitalist types to get on the poptimistic bandwagon. corporate as hell.
“Young’s holier-than-thou schtick hasn’t aged as well as the people he was mocking at the time.”
This Note’s For You isn’t his greatest song, but how has Neil Young’s rejection of commerciality aged badly? I don’t mean to burst anyone’s poptimistic bubble, but not cheapening your music with corporate sponsorship is a pretty admirable trait.
yup, I also went for an obvious joke.
Surprised they haven’t found a way to work Springsteen into this.
I like that new Bob Dylan album but, c’mon, when it comes to the old dudes, Neil Young puts far more passion into his music. ‘Psychedelic Pill’ is as great a record as one could expect from an elder statesman of rock.
