Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Live Rust gets the most props, but if you're looking for a live document of Neil Young and Crazy Horse at their speaker-shredding, stage-scorching best, Weld is an absolute must-own. Fired up by the success of 1990's Ragged Glory, and outraged by the eruption of the Gulf War, Young and his cohorts attacked their 1991 tour like men on a suicide mission. An angry, gunshot-laced version of Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" is the closest thing here to an acoustic reverie; the rest of the album offers up staggeringly intense electric versions of Neil songs both current ("Crime in the City," "Love to Burn," "Rockin' in the Free World") and classic ("Cortez the Killer," "Cinnamon Girl," "Powderfinger"). The back-cover photo of a disheveled Young cradling a broken-stringed guitar pretty much says it all--no one could have unleashed a sonic onslaught this brutal, and emerged unscathed from the experience. --Dan Epstein

5.0 out of 5 stars So you thought might like to go to the show? May 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Well, obviously the tour resulting in this CD is long over, but this is your best shot at going to this particular Neil Young concert. He blows you away right from the start (as does the band) but by the time the Dylan classic 'Blowin' in the wind' is played inside out in a truly amazing rendering of this song, he grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go anymore. This is a CLASSIC rock album, although Live Rust is more famous. Trust me, this is Live Rust tenfold. Cortez the Killer, Crime in the City, Powderfinger... it's all here. But you will be coming back to Blowin' in the Wind, just like me. Recorded on the verge of the Gulfwar, Young gets angry and gets the song done in just the right way. Think about what could have happened in the Gulf War, close your eyes and set the volume to 12. This is not a song, this is a work of Art, deserving to belong in every self respecting rock collection. Impressive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Air Assault October 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
On the one hand this is one of the finest live documents of a performer's work ever recorded. In fact, it may be the best live 2 disc set aside from Young's own 'Live Rust' and Eric Claptons 'Derek and the Dominos - Live At the Fillmore' release. Even without the visual imagery of the 'Weld' video, the nuances that made 'this' Neil Young the 'Godfather of Grunge' can be appreciated through the audible record alone. In particular are the extreme, even by Neil Young standards, use of distortion and feedback, especially in the extended endings of songs. Neil was even inspired by his opening act, Sonic Youth, to string together a number of these finale's into the curious, experimental 'Arc' disc. You may need to garner a taste for such voluminous summations since virtually all of the songs on 'Weld' are punctuated in this manner. On the upside, there is certainly nothing lackluster about the way Young and Crazy Horse are addressing their catalog here. It's pedal to the metal all the way.

The track selection is another story. The setlists detailed on the 'Sugar Mountain' website reveal that on their 1991 tour Young and Crazy Horse offered little variation from one performance to the next. One setlist appears to have been rigidly adhered to. What you're hearing on 'Weld' is pretty much what everyone who attended a concert from this tour heard. But one can certainly take exception with some of the songs Young chose for the shows. While most people who attend a Neil and the Horse concert probably expect to hear certain classics, such as 'Like a Hurricane' and 'Cinnamon Girl', alternate versions of these tracks are readily available on a number of releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars Young and Crazy Horse crank it up May 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
After "Ragged Glory," one of the all time great rock guitar albums, Young and his sometime mates took to the road and pumped up the volume. New songs and old alike get a bludgeoning that is high energy if not always the best way to hear them. What gives the record its immediacy is that it was recorded during the Gulf War. The highlight comes when, over sounds of automatic gunfire and explosions, Neil shouts the lyrics to Dylan's anti-war classic "Blowin' in the Wind" while strumming a singular electric guitar note with fury. This is Neil at his angriest, and there are simply no quiet moments. A solid live album from a great artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best live album September 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Weld is the strongest live album from Neil Young & Crazy Horse. Although their previous live album Live Rust is also very good, Weld is more raw and intense and features stronger performances. This was recorded while the U.S. troops were at war in Iraq during 1990-91 and the music featured here was very reflective of the nation's mood at the time.

Many of the tunes on Weld had already appeared on Live Rust such as "Powderfinger", "Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black}", "Tonight's The Night", "Like A Hurricane", and "Cinnamon Girl." However, the performances of these tracks on Weld are grittier and grungier. There are five tracks here from their excellent Ragged Glory album with the best being "Love To Burn", "Farmer John", and "Love And Only Love." Disc 1 is the slightly stronger disc, containing a feedback heavy version of Bob Dylan's "Blowin' In The Wind" and killer versions of "Welfare Mothers" and "Crime In The City" with the latter being much better than the studio track on the Freedom album. Disc 2 contains decent versions of "Rockin' In The Free World" and "Roll Another Number." This album, along with Ragged Glory, pointed towards the grunge music that dominated the early 90's. Highly recommended to fans of Neil's work with Crazy Horse as this is clearly the best thing next to seeing them live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sir Percival the Knight June 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Once sued by Geffen Records for delivering "uncommercial" records, Canadian Neil Percival Young has never really sought stardom. He has always followed his instincts, even when they told him to put out an album of feedback noise, yet he has also produced a body of work which, in terms of depth and influence, is second only to Bob Dylan.
And nobody but nobody, not even His Bobness himself, will leave behind a musical legacy as diverse as that of Neil Young.

No techno or rockabilly here, though. "Weld" is a furious two hours of blistering hard rock, courtesy of Neil Young and his legendary 70s backing band Crazy Horse.
Screaming with distortion and vibrating overdrive, "Weld" gathers sixteen powerful songs, averaging 7˝ minutes in lenght, on two discs.
Young's then-current albums "Freedom" (1989) and "Ragged Glory" (1990) are represented by "Mansion On The Hill", "Crime In The City" (in a much harder rocking version than the studio one), "Farmer John", "F**kin' Up", and the classic "Rockin' In The Free World", and from his masterpiece "Rust Never Sleeps" comes "Cortez The Killer", "Welfare Mothers" and one of the best songs of Neil Young's forty-year career, the epic "Powderfinger", which burns with two riveting solos from Young himself.

He also covers "Blowin' In The Wind", complete with the sounds of an air raid siren, gunfire and bombs going off, and the result is quite majestic.
There's an impressive 14-minute guitar extravaganza built around "Like A Hurricane". A great "Love And Only Love". And the final song on disc two is a wonderfully rough, yet melodic rendition of the superb "Roll Another Number".
