Here's The Review of the Moment Neil Young's Psychedelic Anthems - No Depression Americana and Roots Music by Charlie Bermant:
But this night, standing in toward the back of the general admission section at Key Arena in Seattle with the monster video screens in equidistant view, something clicks. In the middle of "Ramada Inn," an astounding track from Psychedelic Pill, the auditory thrill reminds me why I bought into all this stuff. It's the music, stupid. The extraordinary noise that occurs when Neil makes when he brings some of his friends to play in your town. These sounds make everything else superfluous. If not for this music he'd be just another scraggly guy on YouTube singing "Down By the River" to the mirror and the book would be a waste of time.Thanks Jay & Charlie!
Young's unpredictability and variety is what makes him most interesting, you never know what to expect. Even so, there is a notion that for all his left turns into country, techno, big band, solo electric and whatever else he may try his work with Crazy Horse represents the peak of a vast musical mountain he has built throughout the years. Assign any superlative you want. For me this represents the Holy Grail of Rock and Roll, representing the most astounding , exhilarating noise I'll hear for some time.
For you, it could be just noise.
