iTunes Review

Neil Young has always been a reactionary. He sees the world. He responds. “Four dead in Ohio,” "Even Richard Nixon has got soul,” his 1994 tribute to Kurt Cobain Sleeps With Angels, his 9-11 homage “Let’s Roll,” and now Living With War, his instantaneous reaction to the Iraq war and the world as we inhabit it circa 2006. This blog of today, time capsule for the future, is a rough and ready tumble of hard, distorted rock – diametrically opposite the acoustic gentleness of his previous 2005 Prairie Wind release – supported by catchy sing-along melodies (“After the Garden,” “Flags of Freedom,” which directly lifts from Bob Dylan’s “Chimes of Freedom”) and no doubt sentiments. “Let’s Impeach the President” doesn’t leave as much room for subtlety as “Rockin’ in the Free World” but “Lookin’ For a Leader” shows true bi-partisanship as he reaches across the aisles to suggest Barack Obama and Colin Powell as two leaders he might likely support. Young’s best moments have the human touch. “Families” and “Roger and Out” address the real cost of human life at a time of war. They’re angry and nostalgic, wishful and sad.

Words that need to be sung aloud -

...the Emperor has no clothes but the masses are never going to see the photos on the Complacency News Network or Faux News.... This is my first ever Neil Young album. My uncle is a big fan and always told me to listen to the words - I never figured out what he was talking about till I heard "Let's Impeach" on Democracy Now. So I rushed to pre-order and have just downloaded it on the release day and I have to strongly recommend this to anyone who needs their spirit raised in these spooky days. Thanks Neil - short of throwing this lot behind bars, this was a burst of hope that one day sanity will prevail. Every track is as good as "Lets Impeach" and the words are just as honest - I realize most this will assault the comfort level of many people who still refuse to believe that we haven't been sailed down the river, but maybe soon the nation will consider the possibility that those who have diverted the nation's attention from the alleged perpetrators of 9/11 may have on some level also been complicit with the heinous events of that day. Follow the money - every word rings true here. While the lyrics are outstanding, just about every track has a memorable melody - you're going to love the latin style trumpet playing here too. Highly recommended and I'm many of these tracks already have five stars in my ipod playlist.

The most patriotic thing to do!

Neil Young addresses, through the revolutionary medium of rock, what should be making any true American's blood boil - the indecency of an illegitimate war and the shame that this president has put us through. Rock is back. Finally music I can feel strongly about.

truly incredible!

This has got to rank as one of Neil Young's best albums. It just shows you when inspired, Neil can truly rise to the task. These songs are viseral, angry, relevant and beautiful. Listen carefully to the lyrics. How sad when you really think about them. Incredible stuff when you realize that he created, recorded and released the album in such a short period of time. In these days of over produced, polished and pristinly manufactured music, how refreshing it is to have Neil Young out there on a limb, taking risks and showing us how emotion and pure instinct are what really matter in music.

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...
