Get behind the wheel of the Gold and chrome Masters. Drive, drive, and drive, on to greener pastures. Stomp down hard on the carbon footprint. Then see the fools go over the cliff, to the sound of the Gold Masters laughter. P.S. Al Gore can explain this-but he won't.

Neil is the man! This is sooo good! Anyone else think he's getting better with age? He just keeps churning these great songs out. Mark my words, this will end up as much a crowd favourite as Cortez, Hurricane etc... OK, OK - I can't keep a straight face - it's rubbish Neil, an absolute stinker - one of many these days...

Well. Taste differs. I really like it. I also like Cough up the bucks and Fuel Line. Just Singing a Song and Light a Candle is also OK. If every concert just had Cortez, Hurricane, DBTR and Powderfinger, it would be a little boring. I even hope the new songs will be released on CD. Well, that's my opinion.

Sounds like Neil needs some quick cash.

As Anonymous said...if Neil only played good songs, they'd get boring...hence the need for a piece of crap like this. It's Nietzschean, man, no good without the bad.

I think Neil must be a Tom Waits fan. the backing vocal part sounds exactly like GET BEHIND THE MULE, no question about it. Except this song is nowhere as good.

I'm sure it ain't deliberate... but you can't deny it if you've heard both songs.

hands down: those new tunes suck. they really do - badly. if he released them? oh, of course i´d buy the fucking record! why? because i buy every neil young album. i´m a faaaaaan, you know.. but i´d probably play that thing 3 or 4 times at the most, like "are you passionate" - his WORST album EVER. yes, the worst. even worse than "everybody´s rockin´". sometimes it´s hard to be a fan. it´s not easy at times. why he wrote that shit and why he´ll probably release it - i don´t know. and for heaven´s sake: please don´t tell me it´s because of the money. you don´t believe that yourself, do you!? as i mentioned before, he released AYP in 2002, and i was really shocked, because to me that was THE lowpoint. but then he put out "greendale" and "prairie wind", which i both like very, very much. "living with war" kicked some ass, and there´s some good stuff on "chrome dreams II", too. so let´s be confident that he´ll write some more GOOD songs in the near future. but i´m not dissapointed if he doesn´t - because i don´t expect anything brilliant anymore these days. let´s be fucking honest: he´s done his best work. and i love his body of work. i like some albums better than others, but i think that is all of us, isn´t it? i´m glad he´s still around. saw him two times this year, that´s something i´ll never forget. those shows were mindblowing. and i´m grateful for that. mr. neil won´t be around forever. same with us, right? but, hey, i´m only 28, so i´ll outlive some you guys, don´t you think? :-) seriously: let us be happy about the way it is, let us be peaceful. i´m excited about the things to come: the archives in 2011 (maybe), perhaps another tour of europe..? as i´ve said before: i´d see him anytime, ANYTIME. and if he did the horrible "everybody´s rockin´"-album in a basement, solo on a jew´s harp - i´d be there. happy, i guess. god bless you, neil. and us. or me, at least ;-)

cheers, thomas (old europe)

I just listened to the entire recording of 12-15 at MSG, to and from work in my car, and boy Neil rocks hard. I liked the first listen at the show, but the second listen in the car gave me a little better appreciation. Perhaps this may also be true for some other folks.

Neil's new material is great, and ranks among my favorite classic albums such as "Everybody's Rockin'" and "Landing on Water." Having Pegi in the backing band is better than Jack Nietzche, Rusty Kershaw, and Nils Lofgren put together. The only thing that would be more exciting is if he got back together with, oh you guessed it, the International Harvesters. Although, I must say, I would truly miss Rick Rosas.

This song sounds like a re-write of the, "ahem", classic Dog House from 1988, possibly the worst song ever by Neil. Oh wait, this one's even worse...

I'm sure the concert was great but this song stinks.

Reminds me of Ten Men Working. Bring back some of the Bluenotes. Every good car needs a good horn! (section).
