Neil Young Concert Reviews - Minneapolis, July 29, 2010
- A scattered Neil Young at Northrop Auditorium 07/29/2010 - Minneapolis / St. Paul Music - Gimme Noise by Rob Van Alstyne:
Unfortunately the proceedings came grinding to a halt once more when Young decided to deconstruct one of his best-loved tunes, 'Cortez the Killer,' into a fractured and glacial tone poem. It's the kind of daring move Young fanatics routinely cite as what makes Young cool - and it probably would have been if it had come within the context of a sharper show featuring a stronger set of songs. Nearing the close of this particular night, it just came off as sloppy.
"Deconstructed"? Agree. "Sloppy"? Hardly.
