Editors’ Notes

Neil Young has spent his career vacillating between folk-based acoustic ballads and fiery distorted-guitar jams and while he’s often used his albums to address these individual styles, he’s also been known to balance the two seamlessly when it suits his nature. Chrome Dreams II is Young’s playful 2007 nod to the 1977 album Chrome Dreams that he once planned to release, but being Neil decided against. Young’s mercurial moods ensure a serendipitous return. “Ordinary People” is a song that’s been floating around as performance and bootleg for years and finally receives an 18-minute official release that features Young’s related-to-the-era lyrics (Lee Iacocca is so ‘80s) and his usual incendiary guitar jams. “Beautiful Bluebird,” “Boxcar” and “Spirit Road” exhibit Young’s generous talent with the simplest of sentiments, while “No Hidden Path” extends into an 11-minute workout with serious guitar work underpinning the haunting chorus that seeps out from the feedback. Crazy Horse drummer Ralph Molina, pedal steel extraordinaire Ben Keith and bassist Rick Rosas fill out Young’s simple, unadorned band that leave plenty of room for Young to roam.
