Editors’ Notes

Recorded at Hansa Studio in Germany where David Bowie’s Heroes and U2’s Achtung Baby were also recorded, Tiger Suit is a technically thrilling album based on layers of sound and brilliant electronic manipulation. Tunstall, the Scottish folkie, is again completely vanquished, as on Drastic Fantastic, and a booming art-pop singer takes her place. “Uummannaq Song” jags in several different directions as the rhythm section’s cruise control goes delightfully awry.  “Glamour Puss” is more cityscape glitz and champagne fizz. The whistling is perfect. “Difficulty” throws together some distorted and fuzzed-out guitars. “Fade Like a Shadow” goes for the quick pop hook. “Lost” turns into a space-folk tune with backing vocals bouncing between galaxies. “Golden Frames” tramps by with a cosmopolitan blues that sounds both desperate and seductive. “Come On, Get In” ramps up the tempo. “(Still A) Weirdo” and “The Entertainer” are the tracks where she sounds like she’s finally landed on earth for a breather before heading back into ozone.

Customer Reviews


Neil Young is like a bottle of fine wine. He just keeps getting better with age. This album has truth written all over it. It's the essence of what makes Neil one of the few great musicians that still makes honest and original music.

Le Noise

The title is appropriate as this album is nothing but noise. What happened to you Neil? Where is that enormous talent? It's hard to believe that this painful wailing was written and performed by the great artist that brought us Harvest and After The Gold Rush. Le Noise sounds like junior high kids jamming in a garage. Sad.

A Modern Classic

Just like Dylan's Time Out of Mind, Le Noise is a classic from legend, still out to prove himself! I find some of the negative reviews here pretty funny about the production of the album. Have these people even read about the background and Neil's and Daniel's intentions for this album? These negative reviewers seem to be talking out of their a**, because this production was and is deliberate. And to me that's what makes this album that much better. The songs are naked and aggressive and the production further enhance their emotional intensity. Plus some of the negative reviewers definitely fall under the Neil's acoustic side fans, which is fine, but to fault him for his aggressive "rockier" side, seems myopic. If you're an "overall" Neil fan as I am, you will love this album and you will agree it's up there with his best, legendary works as well as definite 2010 top ten release on critics picks lists I'll bet .

After Neil Young left the California folk-rock band Buffalo Springfield in 1968, he slowly established himself as one of the most influential and idiosyncratic singer/songwriters of his generation. Young's body of work ranks second only to Bob Dylan in terms of depth, and he was able to sustain his critical reputation, as well as record sales, for a longer period of time than Dylan, partially because of his willfully perverse work ethic. From the beginning of his solo career in the late '60s through...
