Now this is more like it!!!!!!!!!!!! Time to throw away the Americana CD as PP is the real deal.

Saw Neil play several songs off this album in Tulsa, he played Ramada Inn, Walk Like a Giant, Twisted Road, Born In Ontario plus other new songs. This album will be great to have!

Just heard the entire double CD, all I can say is wow? How in hell could they come up with something this great this late in the game? Best Neil Young CD in more than 20 years! It's way better than Greendale, it has the classic 70's vintage prime Neil Young Crazy Horse sound (exactly). Hearing it you would believe it was released in the 70's or 80's! Hearing an awesome piece like this almost restores my faith in rock & roll!

If it truely sounds like old NY and CH then I'm all in. I'm sure they meant well with that Americana CD but most of us want NY & CH like it was meant to be. I will have to pick this one up if what SteveMor sez is true. RnR will never die or rust or fade away. Later.

edit: One more thing...$70 for the vinyl, really Neil?!?! $30-35 would be a fair price.

Agreed, very good tunes, NY with CH outdid themselves. All the songs are good, but the longer songs are really very good and hold up well despite their length. Listening to it now and although new, it is familiar in themes and phrasings. I really like it and can't wait for the blu-ray. Psychedelic Pill blows away Americana as I knew it would.

At $30-$35 for that vinyl pressing, they would be losing money.

people always mistake angriness for the truth. those same people don't like "Americana"

OK, if you want to have a discussion about Americana, we can do that here.

Here is what I liked:
Nice concept of taking traditional "american" songs and re-imagining them musically.
Good to hear Neil and Crazy Horse on record
Choir was nice touch
"Jesus' Chariot"
"High-Flyin' Bird"

Here is what I didn't like:
Concept ran thin and really didn't sustain over a full length album
An inexplicable and jarring gap between music and lyrics that grew wider with each listen
Although the songs were long, there were no sustained solos or any of the sonic leads that NY is capable of (and that are very plentiful on Pill)
"Get a Job"
"Tom Dula"
"Gallows Pole"
"God Save the Queen"

Overall, "Americana" is a middling effort and sinks to my bottom 5. "Psychedelic Pill" more than makes up for "Americana", "LeNoise", "Fork in the Road" and the rest of the mediocre NY releases over the last 10 years. I have all of NY's releases and I enjoy his back catalogue, but "Psychedelic Pill" is the first release in a long time that can truly be called classic. In comparison, "Americana" pales.

If you like "Americana" that is your right as it is mine to not like it.

icecube says:
so you did like some of it. which makes it good. thanx for makijg my point, natch.

Posted on Nov 28, 2012 9:25:21 AM PST
Actually, I dis-liked a lot more than I liked, so no, it doesn't make it good in my opinion. I am not clear on how any of this makes your point or even what your point really is which may be why you like "Americana" because you are both pointless and really in the larger scheme of things, unnecessary, again, in my opinion. If your opinion differs, that is fine.

look buddy, "Americana" is a good album with a concept. "Psychadelic" is a great album. can't you get that concept through your greasy head?
