Producer Daniel Lanois speaks about the making of "Le Noise"


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

Product Description

His 1973 live album, recorded on tour with the Hollywood studio band The Stray Gators. Includes Last Dance; Yonder Stands the Sinner , more.

Substituting eager Pearl Jam for wizened Crazy Horse, Young returns to the Ragged Glory formula--big guitars, droning rhythm, mystical poetry--for this one-off 1995 CD after a joint concert tour. Pearl Jam, especially new drummer Jack Irons, focuses Young's ideas and challenges him in ways the more forgiving Horse never does. "Downtown" became an immediate rock-radio hit, and the song's three-chord force keeps even the lines about dancing hippies and Jimi Hendrix from getting stale. Singer Eddie Vedder shows up sporadically but makes the most of a shadowy bridge on "Peace and Love." --Steve Knopper

5.0 out of 5 stars Young at heart September 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Neil Young and Pearl Jam's impressive musical collaboration has a live sound, with thick, unpolished guitars, heavy drums and crashing drums everywhere, as if in rehearsal mode. Though these songs completely rock out, there's an old-fashioned sense to them, a sort of archaic vibe for the respect of rock and roll music. The comraderie and naturalness between Pearl Jam and Young is unmistakable -- the combination fits like well-worn slippers. The heavy guitar chops on such songs as "Song X," "Act of Love" and the epic "I'm the Ocean" are all as intense and rocking as any Pearl Jam or Neil Young album out there.

The bold repetativeness of "I'm the Ocean" -- one of the best songs on the album -- is proof that none of these guys need to prop up their songs with hokey, unneeded sonic effects from the studio. It's one of those songs that could go on forever without getting old, and it practically does. The drum beat alone is mesmerizing, but Young's observational lyrics are also impressive. The fact that it sounds like a raw rehersal take in the studio makes it even better. "Big Green Country" is a rolling, high-energy song that clicks on all cylinders, a countryman's version of mosh. Only at "Truth Be Told" does the pace and volume on "Mirror Ball" come down considerably. The raunchier "Downtown" was released as a single, and with its references to Led Zeppelin, hippies and a huge Jimmy Page-like riff, it delivered the goods.

Two portions of "Mirror Ball" -- the middle and very end -- feature a hymnallike organ, the heartwrenching backdrop for Young's short lyrical spot that is aching in its tenderness.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW April 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Probably few people thought that at fifty years old, Neil Young would record the greatest rock album of his career. Well, here it is, the Grammy award winning "Mirror Ball," Young's triumphant collaboration with a very tight, sizzling Pearl Jam, who accompany Young's poetic rambling's so effortlessly that it seems as if they've played together for years. Unlike most of his efforts with Crazy Horse, Young offers a collection of stunning singles worthy of radio. "Downtown," "Peace and Love," "Song X" and "Act of Love" approach the explosiveness of the scathing classic, "Hey Hey My My(into the black)" from 1979's "Rust Never Sleeps." Other songs, such as "I'm the Ocean" and 'Truth Be Known" are drenched in ethereal galaxies of poetry mixed with layers of buzzing guitars. As expected, Neil delivers quite a handsome number of his trademark guitar solos. This is undeniably one of the greatest rock albums of the 90's, and the closest Neil Young ever came to invoking the ghost of Jimi Hendrix. This record is an obligatory purchase for any fan of raw, bare bones Rock N' Roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful power chord workout July 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album was recorded in about two days by Neil Young and Pearl Jam. Had they been given more time, they might have added more polish to the songs. This would diminish their quality. The songs grab you with their fuzzy distortion and simple three chord structures. Had they been given more attention, they would have ended up shinier, with more refinement. As they stand, the songs seem to be the primal offspring of two great musical minds, Neil Young's songwriting and Pearl Jam's musicianship. They sound as if they had been concieved two minutes before tape started rolling. This gives the listener a glimpse into the creative process, what music sounds like when it it born. However, had Young and Pearl Jam had more time in the studio, they may have put out a double album. One can only hope that they meet up again.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Young's hardest rocking CD's. December 23, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This is the album that Neil Young does with Pearl Jam. Not only is this one of Neil's better records, it is also Pearl Jam's best record. Yet it is true that not everyone gave this album the positive props that it deserved when it first came out. Even gave it an average review. But not only does this CD rock from front to back, it is catchy as all heck. From the weaving "Song X" to the overtures of "Throw Your Hatred Down," the album is an enjoyable listen. And as with Ragged Glory, this album's crunchiness in no way stamps out the melody, either. Buy it, dude.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest noise July 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to Neil's music for twenty years, and this colloboration with Pearl Jam ranks up there with Tonight's the Night, Rust Never Sleeps,Harvest MoonI and Ragged Glory. Lyrically, Neil continues to confront America with all of its ugliness. "Need distraction. Need romance and candlelight. Need random violence. Need Entertainment Tonight" he sings on I'm the Ocean. Truth be Known is a rueful dirge that reminds me of "Lookout Joe" on the (hard to believe) 25 year old Tonight's the Night. Is Neil singing about a burnt out drug victim like Bruce Berry?
Pearl Jam rocks just as convincingly as Crazy Horse, and give many of the songs a nervous edge, especially on Big Green Country and Song X. It would of been fascinating to hear this group revitalize the sour "Time Fades Away" on this album, but that is sheer nitpicking. A must for Neil Young listeners, ancient and new.
