A "REAL" Coupe de Ville!
Dan Swan | Lincoln City, Oregon United States | 02/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

""This Notes for you" was largely overlooked when it was released. Much was the same for other releases from this period in Neil's career; such as "Life", "Landing on Water",and "Everybody's Rockin'. For these three records Neil was in the process of getting out of his creatively constricting contract with Geffen Records. "This Notes For you" was his return to his original label "Reprise". Many had written him off; but for those of us who knew Neil; this was a triumph. Never one to become stuck in a rut, Neil came in screemin'. "Ten Men Workiin'" opens with a vengeance. A heavey guitar and blasting horns prepare the listener for what awaits. The title cut is one of Neil's many "ANTHEM" songs, and was accompanied by a music video that was quickly banned from MTV. It portrayed many famous look-a-likes, selling their souls for various products. "Coupe de Ville" must be one of Neil's finest moments. Smooth as silk; this song transports you. He creates an audio painting of love and pathos rare in modern music. This song contains an absolutely beautiful guitar solo. Neil shows how LESS is so much MORE. It may be what he doesn't play that makes this perticular solo so completely satisfying. "Life in the City" is brass infused rock at it's finest. Big, brash, and makes your feet dance. "Twilight" is another brilliant ballad which puts guitar and horns together in a way that I've never heard before, and with amazing results. This disc has some of Neil's most adventures work to date. Check out "Lucky Thirteen" to hear some "Live" work from this "BIG" band. If you like "BIG" music, you'll love "This Notes for You". Neil's only record with that "Big Band" sound, and one where the whole band shines. Think of it as a quick bend in the road towrads "Ragged Glory". Enjoy the ride!"
One of Neil Young's best

"This Note's For You is one of Neil Young's best albums even if it didn't sell. This is the last of Young's experimental albums before he went back to his formula of making either largely acoustic albums or noisier but still very good albums with Crazy Horse. This is great rhythm and blues with an outstanding horn section. The title track is the best known track and it's Neil at his best as he attacks corporate sponsorship while the horn section responds after each line. The rhythm section of Rick (the bass player) Rosas and Chad Cromwell lay down a killer groove throughout the album. Other great R&B tracks include "Ten Men Workin'", "Life In The City", "Sunny Inside", and "Hey, Hey." But for all the great R&B, it's the moodier tracks that are the strongest. "Coupe De Ville", "Can't Believe Your Lyin'" and "One Thing" are very strong with "Coupe De Ville" being one of the best tracks Neil has ever recorded. Albums after this like Freedom and Harvest Moon would bring him back in the spotlight but This Note's For You is more consistent than both of them."
On A Good Note

"After the wretched Life, Neil Young bounced back strong with the blues-based, horn driven, This Note's For You. The album has a nice loose feel and the songs, which in most cases are built around extended riffs, have a strong punch. Mr. Young is in fine form and the horns section wraps nicely around some blistering guitar work. The title track contains some scathing lyrics about the commercialization of rock music and the video won an MTV video award are Video of The Year despite being banned from the station. "Life In The City", "Coupe De Ville", "Married Man" and "Sunny Inside" are all good songs, but "Ten Men Workin'" is the standout track on the album. The album has a catchy as hell horn riff and some nifty guitar playing. This Note's For You marked Mr. Young's return to the Reprise label and it marked a turn back towards greatness."
