Rated 5 stars on by reviewers on Amazon..... here is a review by B.Lynch:
Neil Young stands as one of the great "anti-heroes" of rock. For over 3 decades, he's played pretty much what he wanted, with very little regard for whether or not it was "commerical". Despite their attitude, Neil Young and Crazy Horse managed to rack up a huge string of hits, and a large fan following anyhow. While Neil and his band are grateful for the support (and the 'counrty homes' and all that comes with success in rock and roll), they still refuse to "sell out" and do comfortable pop tunes. Instead, from time to time, they unleash a thunderbolt. This CD is one such thunderbolt.
This one captures Neil Young and Crazy Horse at what they do best-- grunge. Released almost a year before Nirvana's (equally stellar) major label debut CD, this CD makes the recent material from so called heavy rock bands like Aerosmith and Van Halen sound almost wimpy by comparison.*

Perhaps the reason Neil Young and Crazy horse don't do "battles of the bands" is that their firepower is so overwhelming, it would simply destroy most of the competition after they played the first few bars.

Suffice to say, this is an awesome piece of hard rock, done by one of that genre's true masters of the art. While Neil & Crazy Horse have done grungy metal for decades (on Everyone Knows This is Nowhere, Rust Never Sleeps, and several other CD's), they've never quite captured their live energy and intensity as well as they did here.

After you hear the new grunge guys (Alice in Chains, The Cult, and possibly Soundgarden), listen to the old man, and he'll teach you how this music should really be played. Except for Nirvana (who are tragically, gone) none of the newer grunge artists have equalled this CD for sheer songwriting, musicianship, intensity, and edginess.

* Just for the record, I like a lot of Aerosmith & Van Halen's works.

THE original Grunge Artist Returns -- with a vengance

Amps are hot, recording is warm
Eric Guyer | Ashland, OR United States | 02/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The songs on this album are outstanding, the writing is direct, the themes are the same ones Neil has always sung about, making relationships last over time, country living, the road. But the way this album was recorded is probably the main reason I keep coming back. Obviously the guitars are all melting and the amps are overdriven and the songs are free-form, but the vocals are right where I want them, and the guitars are so warm that the album never agitates me (and believe me, I've listened to some agitating music - Teengenerate anyone?). I guess the fifth star is gained by the fact that the songs and the band are still more important than the medium, this album isn't noteworthy for its use of feedback and hot guitars, but because everything fits, in a smooth and soulful way. Never gimmick. Always authentic. Neil transcends the genre again."
