Neil Young Albums From Worst To Best

Aliens land. They’ve traveled from some distant planet with a specific mission: to find out what this ‘rock and roll’ stuff is all about. Through some curious coincidence, they find you. “What is rock and roll?” they demand, rayguns drawn. You begin to sweat. Still, there is really only one question you need to ask… More »

2012 In Review: The Year In Comebacks

“Don’t call it a comeback” is usually a phrase uttered self-protectively by musicians who are very much coming back from some degree of obscurity. Dr. Dre wasn’t exactly absent during the seven-year stretch between his first and second albums (“California Love,” anybody?), but his 1999 sophomore release 2001 is littered with lines like “Ladies pay… More »

Sometimes, in the course of writing this column almost every week for the past year, I’ve had the following response to hearing a great album for the first time: “Fuck, now I have to decide if this is better than this other great album.” The whole Album Of The Week idea is, admittedly, entirely a… More »

Neil Young And Crazy Horse – “Twisted Road” Video

“Twisted Road” is the third video to be released from Neil Young And Crazy Horse’s forthcoming Psychedelic Pill double-LP, and it shares tonal similarities with the first two, “Walk Like A Giant” and “Ramada Inn“: It’s full of grainy, non-sequential images of a younger America.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse – “Ramada Inn” Video

This motherfucker Neil Young just got his old Crazy Horse band back together to make their second album this year, and that album, Psychedelic Pill, has some really, really long songs on it.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse – “Walk Like A Giant” Video

When Neil Young & Crazy Horse debuted “Walk Like A Giant” live during their tour last month, the song frequently edged around the 20-minute mark. The version included on the band’s forthcoming Psychedelic Pills comes in at 16 minutes, but the video for the track fades out at four and a half. Still, it still… More »

Watch Neil Young’s Americana Film

Neil Young recently got his old fuzz-stomp band Crazy Horse back together to record Americana, an album that features the band doing stark, intense reading of the sort of American-standard songs that just about everyone in the country know but which tend to have hidden histories that say a whole lot about the country’s history.

“She’ll Be Coming Round The Mountain” is one of the first songs every American kid learns.
