Toronto - Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Alchemy Tour - 11/19/12
From Neil Young and Crazy Horse put on a raw and rancorous throwdown at ACC | Toronto Star by Ben Rayner:
For Young fans who tilt toward the “loud and long” side of the canon, in fact, there’s arguably nothing sweeter.
So after not one, but two new recorded clumps of “Hey, whatever we got goin’ on, we got goin’ on” from the Horse in 2012 — June’s irreverent (read: “slapdash”) “standards” collection Americana and last month’s divisive, but wholly (read: “self-indulgently”) Neil Young and Crazy Horse-esque double-disc sprawl Psychedelic Pill — a fall tour by Young and Crazy Horse was a thrillingly foregone conclusion.
Psychedelic Pill claimed a dominant share of Young and the band’s Monday-night set at the Air Canada Centre, a raw and rancorous throwdown that bristled with an ageless vitality that would seem to support Young’s claims in Waging Heavy Peace that Crazy Horse is “my window to the cosmic world where the muse lives and breathes … Just getting there is the key thing, and Crazy Horse is my way of getting there.”
Neil Young & Crazy Horse will be performing tonight at Toronto, ONT – Air Canada Centre, Canada.
