No Depression Review: "Americana" by Neil Young and Crazy Horse
An early preview review of "Americana" by Neil Young and Crazy Horse from No Depression | Americana and Roots Music by Nancy Dunham:
If a listener doesn't tune into the words on some of the songs, it'd be easy to mistake them for modern-day rock anthems. That's especially true on the album's opening track "Oh Susanna," which is awash in electric guitars and throbbing drums plus Young's unmistakeable voices, which still have the strength and nuances they held a few decades ago.
My view is that anyone who can make songs such as "She'll be Coming 'Round the Mountain" cool again and introduce classic songs to a new generation is a genius, in my view.
