Sun Green Was Right
Speaking of some of Neil Young's previous so-called "mis-fires" and the predicted "calamity" of the impending Fork in the Road we just thought we'd take a breath and step back.
But not too far. We won't go back to the disappointing "Time Fades Away". Or the baffling "TRANS". Or the un-Neil like "Everybody's Rockin'".
We'll start by going back to 2006's blisteringly negative "Living with War" reviews and reactions. The album was roundly panned and we've long maintained critics were not going negative over the music but the message. Singing "Let's Impeach The President" doesn't exactly make for a lot of friends in the mainstream media. But here we are three years later and Spain wants to arrest George W. Bush for war crimes.
But let's go back a bit further to 2003's so called disaster Greendale. As we've argued repeatedly over the years about the vastly underrated and underappreciated Greendale, the inconvenient truth of Greendale was that Sun Green -- and Neil Young -- were right.
We could point to a host of observations from Greendale that seemed a bit far-fetched then but now seem quite prescient. But we'll just point out this Greendale post where we referenced the impending collapse of Antarctica's Wilkins ice shelf. And as you see in the above video, Antarctica's Wilkins ice shelf has indeed collapsed.
So down the road when we're all driving electric cars, just remember 2009's silly little car album "Fork In The Road".
