Editors’ Notes

"The Godfather of Grunge" made his connection with yet another wave of rock 'n' rollers explicit by enlisting Pearl Jam to take the place of Crazy Horse for this loud, often improvisatory set. Using a band with such a well-defined identity is a challenging idea, but Young whips Pearl Jam into his perfect group by giving the members room to do as they wish. The band's jamming abilities are brought to the fore, and Pearl Jam soars with Young's tunes, which are a lesson in simplicity without being simplistic. The sea chanty sway of "Song X" sounds as if the two superpowers had worked together for decades. "Act of Love" chugs with intention. "I'm the Ocean" and "Throw Your Hatred Down" fire up with some of Young's most inspired guitar work (as well as that of Stone Gossard and Mike McCready, who both sound a bit relieved to be on holiday and let a living legend give them the framework). "What Happened Yesterday" and "Fallen Angel" are song scraps with Young on pump organ. The nearly nine-minute "Scenery" is an engrossing epic.

From the beginning of his solo career in the late '60s through...
