Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Seven of the nine songs on this album were recorded with a reunited Crazy Horse, and nearly all of them deal with the subject of romantic conflict and lost love: Don't Cry No Tears; Barstool Blues; Pardon My Heart; Lookin' for a Love; Through My Sails ; the seven-and-a-half minute epic Cortez the Killer , and more!

If Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and Ragged Glory are the two finest studio albums Neil Young recorded with Crazy Horse, Zuma certainly qualifies as a close third. Recorded in 1975, Zuma exudes both a sense of focus and a tentative optimism, two qualities that were completely MIA from the bleak Time Fades Away/Tonight's the Night/On the Beach trilogy that preceded it. "Barstool Blues," "Don't Cry No Tears," and "Drive Back" are terse, punchy rockers, while "Danger Bird" and "Cortez the Killer" are extended guitar workouts in the grand Crazy Horse tradition. And the two acoustic entries--"Pardon My Heart" and "Through My Sails" (the latter was recorded with Crosby, Stills & Nash)--are absolutely gorgeous. Ignore the crappy cover art, and treat yourself to one of Young's most underrated records. --Dan Epstein

Customer Reviews

Zuma is one of the best Neil Young and Crazy Horse discs.
Danger bird is just another marvellous piece of guitar playing, while "pardon my heart" is one of his best ballads.
Every song on here is excellent and none of them are filler tracks.

Without any possible question, this is one of Neil Young's greatest albums, and given the extraordinary length of his career and the amazing number of albums that he has made, that is saying something. This is also one of his most influential albums, producing a pattern for a host of guitar oriented garage and alternative bands in the 1980s and 1990s. It is impossible to listen to a band like Thin White Rope or Eleventh Dream Day or Nirvana and escape the conclusion that the members of the bands all grew up listening to the cuts on this disc.

Although this is widely known as one of the seminal guitar albums in the history of rock, there are two paradoxes in that claim. First, a couple of the songs are entirely acoustic and feature none of the grungy guitar found throughout the rest of the disc. "Pardon My Heart" is not merely acoustic, but soft and gentle as well. "Through My Sails" is a Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young song. For me, it is the weakest cut on the album, and a potent reminder to me of why I prefer Neil Young on his own. The second paradox is that in many ways Neil Young really isn't a very good guitarist. Technically, there are probably a host of high school guitarists that surpass him. His solos are some of the most elementary in the history of rock. Nonetheless, Young seems to get more musical mileage out of relatively meager chops of any guitarist in history. He might not be a virtuoso, but in this album he virtually reinvents grunge guitar, and paved the way for a host of imitators.

Guitar aside, what drives this amazing album is the great, great songs that line up one after another. "Don't Cry No Tears" gives way for the even more stunning "Danger Bird." A couple of songs later we get one of my favorite Young songs, "Barstool Blues.

Zuma was the first studio album that was credited to Neil Young & Crazy Horse since his second release, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. While various members of the band appeared on albums in between the releases, Zuma contains the power rocking sound that only the complete band could produce. "Barstool Blues" is an underrated gem that has bluesy guitar riff that pops throughout the song. "Drive Back" and "Don't Cry No Tears" have a grungy sound. "Stupid Girl" is great song with a great vocal. "Pardon My Heart" is an acoustic based number as is the closer "Through My Sails" which features Crosby, Stills & Nash and was a leftover from the aborted sessions in 1974 that was supposed to yield the band's followup to Deja Vu. The standout track on the album is "Cortez The Killer" with its droning guitar solo and vivid lyrics, the song is tremendous.

Young and Crazy Horse have done so many fine albums that this one sometimes gets overlooked. Most fans know "Cortez the Killer," but check out "Barstool Blues" (wonderfully redone on the live "Year of the Horse"), "Don't Cry No Tears" and "Pardon My Heart." The sound alternates between soft and hard. A strong effort that is among the better Young albums.

This is one of the best albums Neil Young has done with his stalwart backing band, Crazy Horse. Although it contains two fine and particularly beautiful acoustic tracks, Pardon My Heart and Through My Sails (the latter a CSNY outtake), the standout tracks are the guitar-heavy extended jams. It's not a full-out assault like Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and the later Ragged Glory: most of the songs are fairly mid-tempo - though loud and rocking - such as the classic opener Don't Cry No Tears, Barstool Blues, and Stupid Girl. A couple of the tracks are more laid-back, and feature the most folky, country-ish side of Neil - songs such as Lookin' For A Love. These provide a nice change of pace. The undoubted standout songs on the album, however, are the extended jams on Danger Bird, and, especially, Cortez The Killer, which contains some of Neil's finest guitar soloing ever. This is the most he had cut loose on record since Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. Lyrically, he had moved away from the bleak outlook he had taken to task on his previous albums, and the main thematic element here is lost love - but it's not mourning about it, even: indeed, the general sentiment here seems to be a readyness to move on to the next relationship. Granted, as with most of Young's records that feature Crazy Horse, the lyrics here are not among his best: the music is the main focus; and, thankfully, this album contains some of his very best jams. The absolutely astounding intro and long solo to Cortez The Killer - one of those moments that you simply must hear to believe. It just has to be experienced. Although none of the other tracks on this album can match that masterpiece, there is a general high level of craft here, making for another essential Neil Young album.

This is one hell of an album, one of my personal favourites. Neil and the Horse get back on track with beautiful, simple, guitar based rock songs. Barstool Blues is legendary. Rumour has it that the band went on a heavy drinking spree and awoke the next morning to find this song recorded - with Neil singing at an octave higher than normal. I don't know if this is true or not, but it's a cool rumour! There is not one bad song, the meandering lead of Dangerbird, the melodic Pardon my Heart, the upbeat Stupid Girl and the has-to-be-mentioned Cortez the Killer. This is a fantastic song and an absolute classic. The slow dreamy intro lasts over a third of the song and the story goes (again) that Neil got so involved with playing the riff that he forgot to sing. It too may not be true but I could understand it if it were. This album is a signifcant must have for any true Neiler collection. Buy it!
