This has to be one of our favorite photos we've seen come out of the Neil Young & Crazy Horse 2012 Alchemy Concert Tour.
The photo by Andre Bergeron is definitely worthy of clicking thru for enlargement and the entire gallery captures the Horse vibe in glorious black & white.
Also, here's another early review of "Psychedelic Pill" by Neil Young and Crazy Horse on TONEAudio MAGAZINE by Bob Gendron:
Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s first new studio album of original material in nine years gives a symbolic middle finger to modern convention.
Its length is sprawling, its surrealist first song occupies more than 27 minutes of time, and its lyrical content casts aspersions on the present and embraces the past. It is the opposite of the digestible sound-byte fare dominant on the very FM radio band that once championed Young. It is a stubborn and curmudgeonly statement in no hurry to go anywhere, and feels nary an obligation to apologize for its imperfections. It is the unmistakable sound of an artist doing things on his own terms and caring not an iota if he doesn’t make everyone happy. It is noisy, raw, loose, off-the-cuff, spontaneous, and blatantly out of step with what’s often perceived as progress. It is alternatively indulgent and lean, nostalgic and contemporary, humorous and serious, unscripted and planned, frustrating and engaging, simple and complex. It is everything one might expect a get-back-into-the-shed Crazy Horse record should be, and then some, and is likely to irritate the listeners that doubt the performance abilities of Young’s longtime garage-rock mates.
Approached on its own terms, Psychedelic Pill is also another master stroke from an icon who, nearing 67 years old, could sleepwalk through the remainder of his career rather than continue to take bold risks and potentially antagonize—even alienate. But Young has never been about playing it straight, and of late, whether on record or in print, he’s rarely seemed more fiery or outspoken.
