Reseña de álbum

It somehow is fitting that Fork in the Road arrived in stores a week after President Barack Obama announced his bail-out plan for the American automobile industry: it's Neil Young's one-man campaign to remind everybody what cars used to mean and what they should be again. Neil always has had a soft spot for cars — he drove a hearse from Toronto to Los Angeles, immortalizing the vehicle in "Long May You Run" — so this album-length motor manifesto couldn't be called unexpected, nor could its palpable, ever-flowing undercurrent of nostalgia be a surprise for a man who owns a toy train company. Plus, romanticizing the classic years of Detroit is natural; those big boats were gorgeous, so unlike the colorless, characterless sedans that rule the road these days. Neil knows this and knows that dependence on oil is crippling the culture, not to mention the environment, and is enough of an evangelist to cobble together his own green machine, putting an electric engine in a 1959 Lincoln Continental, driving the car to Washington and writing a whole album about the vehicle and its downtrodden times. Fittingly, Fork in the Road is like his Lincvolt: it has a new engine in an old body, so it has all of the classic contours but runs a little differently. The Lincvolt might be smooth and efficient, but Fork in the Road is charmingly clunky, a side effect of its quick creation and Young's hard-headedness. Neil might be writing records as quickly as a blogger these days but musically he's stuck in the past, never letting go of his chunky Les Paul and candied folk harmonies, embracing his status as an old crank so enthusiastically he happily presents himself as a crazy old coot on the album's cover. At times, he certainly does sound like the resident codger, snarling about the fading economy and how everybody's been downsized, good naturedly sneering "big rock star/my sales have tanked/I still got you/thanks" on the title track. Despite the undercurrent of auto nostalgia here, Young isn't living in the past and he's keenly aware of the present. This blend of dreamy thoughts of yesteryear, spitting fury over the present, and planning for the future gives Fork in the Road a bit of a kick that propels it through a few songs that aren't much more than a garage groove, but the whole thing benefits from its messiness; the loose ends make it feel alive. [A CD/DVD version was also released.]

Old School

Feels like old times. New album getting killed in reviews. Neil veers off. What's he doing? Let's underestimate it. Where are the Archives? This is a great band and it really cooks. The music is in the core of Neil's wheelhouse. I wonder if he can hit this pitch... He can. It's recorded on tour and the band's groove shows. Some reviews have complained about the album being too simplistic, idealistic and recorded too quickly. THIS IS WHAT NEIL YOUNG DOES. And Neil Young is far from simplistic. The music grinds, grooves and soars like his best work. It's tight and loose at the same time. His voice sounds great and the arrangements are dead on. A bonus - goofy videos. God help us, I think he's using a Flip or something. I've been a long time fan of Neil's (since 1968). This is his strongest music, taken as a whole, in a while. Great songs - Just Singing a Song is a classic. Light a Candle, Johnny Magic, Fork in the Road and on, these are the real deal from Neil. He's having a blast and the band is too. Great album. Neil, like John Irwin's mother used to say, "Good for you, GOOD FOR YOU."

The Unending Road

Music that matters. So many aging artists are stuck in the past. Neil lives in the present. Ripe and Juicy. On Time. Apparently he hasn't sung everything he has to say. I hope he never shuts up. Intagwity. Yeah, that's right.

Still Rockin'

Neil Young is still driving people crazy after four decades of music. I love it. He is the only artist to challenge his audience at every turn. Are you up to the challenge? (second review)

Tras dejar la banda Buffalo Springfield en 1968, Neil Young logró establecerse como uno de los más influyentes y personales cantautores de su generación. El cuerpo de su obra se ubica en un segundo plano respecto de Bob Dylan en lo que hace a profundidad y pudo mantener su importante reputación así como sus ventas por un sorprendente y prolongado lapso. Desde los comienzos de su carrera como solista a finales de los 60 hasta finales de los 90, nunca dejó de escribir, grabar y tocar...
