Brilliant song his finest for 22 years let's hope the full version and the Pill record are of a similar quality.

Yeah, it sounds great. The whistling fits in nicely.

I love it! Don't close the barn door after the horse bolts!

Liked live version better.Except for the highly infectious whistling there is hardly anything that I would say classic about this song.
It's not anywhere in the same ball park as DBTR;CITS;CTK or LAH

I first saw Neil live in 1988 with the Bluenotes. I've bought all of his albums upon their release ever since. Having enjoyed hearing live recordings of a bunch of these songs already, I must say that I am thrilled with Neil's output. He appears to have backed his Aerostar over the Muse's firehydrant. Neil is kicking ass and his new Psychedelic Pill material sounds classic already! Long May You Run, Neil! Alan G

Part 2: Oh, and the song itself: It is a powerful, moving testament to Neil's environmental hopes and dreams, born of the 60's, being dashed by man's collective destruction of the planet. I interpret that if Neil were to get up and "walk like a giant on the land" that he might be setting a few things right and putting an end to some of the problems he sees in the world (unlimited plundering of resources, pollution, industrial causes of global warming, etc). Its a beautiful, intensely haunting classic as the humans close the chapter of "Life on Earth as usual." Alan G

Well only time will tell if this is classic Neil - I'm not saying it's up there with DBTR at the moment but....

As good as this is, I think comparisons to established classics are a bit unfair, and Walk Like A Giant isn't actually the best-realised epic on the album. Driftin' Back's the big one, you mark my words.

What a great song! When I first listened to the Red Rocks version I thought it was about mankind in general. We all used to walk like giants on this planet.

Will there be a full version of the song streaming today on NPR?

WARNING: Do not try to read some pages in Waging Heavy Peace if you have other things to do. Because there is NO WAY you can stop reading once you have started. Thank you so much Neil!

SD, if Neil keeled over dead of a heart attack next month, and speaking out could've changed that, how would you feel? I guess lots of Neil fans are fat and don't want to be seen as hypocrites by speaking out. The guy's eating himself into an early grave. An inconvenient truth. We already know he's had an aneurism and high blood pressure and 2 of his closest friends dropped dead in the last couple of years. The last thing he should be is fat. The writing on the wall is in blood. His wife and friends don't seem to be lifting a finger to change the course he's on. I for one am furious that he's killing himself. If I can help shame him into living another 30 years, I'm all in. Grow a spin, Rusties. The life you save may be Neil's.

"Full version" is up now on the NPR page, but it's only a link to the video.

Neil looks fine. He's been heavier than he is now. I thought he looked and sounded great on Letterman. It's not like he's 300 pounds! Give it a rest, Anonymous.
He's not dying anytime real soon...

BTW, how does one grow a spin? Hmmmm?
