iTunes Review

Kurt Cobain quoted Young in his suicide note, and "The Godfather of Grunge" took the singer's death to heart. Cobain's ghost haunts Sleeps with Angels, and several songs are informed meditations on his lost soul. The title track, "My Heart," and "A Dream That Can Last" play as cautionary tales to anyone who takes Young's sometimes-fatalistic lyrics too literally. Just as Tonight's the Night expressed the hangover of guitarist Danny Whitten's overdose, Sleeps with Angels marries itself to the moment when grunge turned dark. Young's best tributes are when he blows the doors off and lets the electricity flow. "Change Your Mind" is a nearly 15-minute monster, complete with a tumultuous firestorm from Crazy Horse. "Western Hero" highlights the beautiful frailty in Young's voice with a tale that excites his boyhood dreams. "Safeway Cart" cruises with a ticking-timebomb rhythm. "Piece of Crap" is a rambunctious jam-out spiked with frustration at the quality of goods. The album is a highlight in Young's catalog and part of a renaissance that Young seems to experience every decade or so.

Hail track 11!!

I found it on the web, I put it on my IPod, it sounds like a Piece of Crap...PIECE OF CRAP....

An overlooked masterpiece

As a long time, diehard Neil fan, I bought this album when it was first released in 1994. It got almost no attention. Neil wouldn't talk about it, did not tour on it, and there was some indication it was his response to Kurt Cobain's suicide. Now it's almost completely forgotten, but I'm glad to see it's here. This is dark, complex music bursting with emotion (with a few exceptions like Piece of Crap, which frankly comes out of nowhere but I'm giving it 5 stars anyway). Neil has never released another album like it, but I'm convinced it's among his best, up there with Tonights the Night and After the Gold Rush. If you are a Neil fan but like so many of us skipped the early and mid-1990s, pick up this one. And then go buy Ragged Glory.

GREAT album

enzoblue01 wrote an excellent review/ note that I recommend you read as well.
Neil young is my favorite songwriter, and this album kind of went under the radar. the skill that went into these dark, emotional songs is profound.
cobain was dead before I was born, and i am a huge fan of nirvana, not because of the style, but because the music is great. Neil young really respected Kurt in this way as well and this is a great tribute to his life and his unfortunate death

Out of all the backing bands Neil Young has recorded and performed with during his long and illustrious career, the best-known of the bunch (and perhaps one of the greatest garage rock bands of all time) remains Crazy Horse. The band's roots lay in the obscure early '60s doo wop band Danny & the Memories, which contained future Crazy Horse members Danny Whitten, Billy Talbot, and Ralph Molina, among others. Although all three would later play instruments in Crazy Horse, the trio focused solely on...
