Biography

Past is prologue, so someone said. But the acoustic prologue to “Driftin’ Back,” the epic (and we mean epic, clocking in as it does at more the 27 gripping minutes) opening song of Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s inspired album Psychedelic Pill, sets the calendar at right now. This is an artist, ever in the moment, fully grounded, firmly rooted, renewing the ... Read more in Amazon's Neil Young Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Even if you don't agree with Neil Young's politics, you can't help but be daunted by the intersection of his genius and ire on his second album in less than seven months. It is the very rare artist who is able to channel indignation and moral disgust in such a coherent and forceful way--without sacrificing any of the vivid imagery, passion, or the high level of musicality that we have come to expect from him over the past four decades. But that's not what elevates this album: it's his pure, naked, visceral reaction to the Bush administration's foreign policy, building on a canon of outrage that he began with 1970's "Ohio," penned in the wake of the Kent State student deaths. But here he goes one better, filling in the lines that he began to draw on 2003's Greendale about a family caught in changing times. But Young's done with musing about lost ideals. On Living with War, he demands much more from his audience, and himself. This is nothing less than a call for fearless action in extraordinarily fearful times. --Jaan Uhelszki

This is electric Neil, not acoustic Neil.

I'm one of those people who is (I suppose) middle of the road and when i heard about this album was interested in how Neil would deliver his 'message'. Well, it's direct. Brutally so.

[...]

Shock and Awe is an all time classic Neil song (think Rockin in the Free World on steroids). Bank on that. The Restless Consumer is another great song. Families is a toe tapper. Let's Impeach the President is, well, a pretty decent song (musically a cousin to Powderfinger) but the lyrics are -well wow (Flip/Flop). Listen yourself. There are very few weak moments on this album. This isn't Harvest, Rust or Everybody Knows - but it's a good CD if you like electric Neil.

As someone wrote earlier, this may be the best protest 'album' ever recorded. It is sure to elicit some type of response from you, positive or negative. That's why it gets 5 stars. I highly recommend this album.

If you ever (even if just for a brief moment) think this country is going back to the days of "no taxation without representation", you should listen to this - even if just to admire what someone can do with his art with first amendment protection.

Unlike the brave "A Kids Review", I think we're all capable of knowing this is Neil's perception - not the person reading this (or writing it for that matter).

This is a masterpiece, an artistic triumph, and, incredibly, even a breakthrough for Neil, as far as I'm concerned. All professional reviews (and most amateur ones) I've read or heard have absolutely undersold this album. I'm not hedging like the professional critics. I love this as much as I love "Ragged Glory" or any other classic Neil album, but it reminds me most of Ragged Glory. It deserves a place in Neil's cannon of great works, but that will be tough because of the iconic status since acquired by his classics. Neil is impassioned. His songwriting is inspired. The choral group and the trumpet add the perfect flourishes of majesty and urgency. The social and political commentary is suprisingly clever and witty, and only propels, rather than drags down, the rhthymic pace and tunefulness of the songs. Not an easy task. Sustaining this sublime melding of commentary, melody and rhythm over a whole album marks a musical breakthrough for Mr. Young. It is impossible to not be impressed by the listening experience provided by "Living with War." Buy it now and turn it up!

Living With War begins with Neil Young singing that we "won't need no shadow men running the government, won't need no stinking war". Angry, emotional words, but this is the most joyous and beautiful angry album I've ever heard.

This is truly an "Ohio" moment, and Living With War strikes a chord that will resonate with the millions of Americans who've tossed off their blinders and who see that this administration hijacked 9/11 for its own twisted political agenda. Now here we are mired in one disastrous war, watching this unpopular administration apparently trying to sell us another, just in time for an election.

Living With War is brilliant and inspiring on many levels: musically, politically, but also as a case study in guerrilla marketing and public relations. A couple of weeks ago word began to leak out that Neil Young, a proud and patriotic Canadian American whom many identify as conservative, was about to release a new song titled "Let's Impeach the President (For Lying)." Faster than you could say 'right-wing blogosphere' Young was in the media gun sights of pro-Bush, pro-war pundits rhetorically blasting him. Of course, none of these critics had heard the song, much less the entire Living With War album.

And what an album it is. It comes wrapped in a plain brown wrapper, but it bleeds red, white and blue. "When the night falls, I pray for peace.... I never bow to the thought police... I'm living with war in my heart and my mind" sings Young. Neil and his PR guerrillas played the attacks brilliantly, parlaying them into perhaps the largest virtual stage and audience that any rocker has ever had to blast out the release of what is Neil's most compelling and timely album.

Great music with an inspiring message. Neil stresses that America is a wonderful country, but that it currently has an ugly side. Neil wants the USA to be a truly free, compassionate nation, led by people (not necessarily just white males) with integrity. Neil is sincere and constructive in the messages of his lyrics; he is not America-bashing. Some of the people who rate the album one star reject "yet another Hollywood or rock star" getting political. Since when are they supposed to keep their mouths shut? All of us are entitled to free speech, provided we steer clear of libel, slander, and defamation of character. Rock on, Neil... kudos to you for taking a stand. Others are free to disagree with you, but you and everyone else ought to be free to express opinions about our leaders and our nation's policies.

The good news is a performer of note finally put our anger, disgust and frustration to music with powerful lyrics and has preserved our thoughts and feelings for future generations.

"Maybe it's Colin Powell...to right what he's done wrong." Neil has documented forever what happens when a good man does not speak out.

PEOPLE WHO HATE FREEDOM!
Its very funny how liberals and conservatives accuse each other over things they both do. One side accuses the other side as portraying them as evil and crazy, and in the same breath, portraying the other side as being evil and crazy. My sentence is confusing, but true.

I Thought He Wanted The War
Umm, maybe it meant "Let's go after the people who did this to us"? As opposed to "Let's go after some other people," which is what we did after that.

My prediction--this will be Neil Young's best-selling album. I listened to it for free on the web and it's great, and now I...

He Has a Set of Balls, That's for Sure
The evidence that he has reproductive organs would come in the form of his three children. This album is only a testament to the brain in his head and the conviction in his heart. (Seriously though-- I know what you mean and I agree with you.)

Which Neil will show up
Wish to correct Mr. or Ms. Flintstone on one point: Saddam did, in fact, have WMD. He used them on the Kurds in northern Iraq in 1988. Haven't you seen any of the trial or news footage? He never properly accounted for these weapons nor did he dispose of them or allow inspections of his WMD... Read More
