Neil Young and Crazy Horse


A couple of weeks ago flannel-wearing, proto-grunge sensitivo Neil Young turned 67, but he still seems to have his eyes fixed on the future, having recently pulled out of reunion tour with his mid ’60s group Buffalo Springfield. His latest album, Psychedelic Pill—and second this year to feature his old pals in his backing band Crazy Horse—is a mindfuck in the best way possible: On three 15-plus-minute dirtily produced jams and five shorter numbers, he manages to sound vital and inspired for close to 90 minutes, which would be no small feat for most artists half his age.
