Customer Reviews

Strange 1980s soft rock sound.

I bought this in the US when it originally came out. The single to 'promote' the album was 'Touch the night'. It featured Neil Young wandering around the scene of a freeway pile up with crashed cars, ambulances, police cars and accident casualties being treated. It got reasonable play time on MTV and the radio. But it was certainly a strange way introduction to a strange album. The sound is odd. The 'band' was Neil Young on lead guitar, synthesizer, vocals, Danny Kortchmar on guitar, synthesizer, vocals and Steve Jordan on drums, synthesizer and vocals. It is a minimal sound with a horrible dull thuddin drum beat, and synthesizers. It is a 1980s soft rock sound. The actual release date of the album was in 1986 (not 1991 as stated above), 'Hard luck stories' is the best example, but all of the tracks are much of a muchness.

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...
