"Colorado" is the first new Neil Young with Crazy Horse album since 2012's "Psychedelic Pill". The album will be released on October 25th and features 10 new Neil Young compositions. It includes several songs that Neil has been playing live in the past few months (eg: "Rainbow of Colors", "Green Is Blue" and "Milky Way"), and the epic 13+ minute track "She Showed Me Love". The vinyl version of the album comes with a bonus 7" single, featuring an album outtake "Truth Kills". The 7” also includes a live, solo version of "Rainbow of Colors" from Portland, OR, on May 17, 2019 - the first time Neil ever performed this song live. This incarnation of Crazy Horse is Neil Young on vocals, guitar, piano, harmonica and vibes, Billy Talbot on bass, Ralph Molina on drums and features the return of Nils Lofgren on guitar and piano, almost 50 years since he last appeared on a Crazy Horse album (1971). The album is produced by Neil Young and John Hanlon and was recorded in Colorado in April & May 2019.

Colorado is a stream of consciousness record and it contains everything you have come to except from a Crazy Horse record. Passion, intensity, directness, and heartbreak. The ebb and flow, the contrast and relief, it’s all here.
Extended jams have been a staple for the Horse and they are here in spades. ‘She Showed Me Love’, ‘Help Me Lose My Mind’, and ‘Shut it Down’ are real heavy smokers. ‘Olden Days’ is heartbreaking, ‘Green is Blue’ is a slow burner classic and ‘I Do’ is the perfect ending to a perfect record. ‘Milky Way’ is reminiscent of Sleeps with Angels, ‘Eternity’ goes “click clack clickety clack, and ‘Rainbow of Colors’ is another jab at the White House. The record starts with ‘Think of me’, and it’s a great way to welcome back Nils Lofgren to the band. Nils is in excellent form here, playing rhythm guitar, keyboards, and background vocals.
Psychedelic Pill was the last Crazy Horse album and Colorado is an appropriate follow up. The vinyl also comes with a 45rpm with a live version of ‘Rainbow of Colors’, recorded in Portland Oregon and it’s the first performance of this new song. Judging from the response from the audience, it was a big success. The flip side is a song called ‘Love Kills’, and it’s amazing. It should have made the album. It’s that good.
As a Coloradan I'm looking forward to hopefully seeing them crank it up at Red Rocks next summer.
Crazy horse this record is more of the early 70’s vibe than recent incarnations. It’s one of
those records that gets better with each listening. You also need to hear it on a good audio system not your iPhone
I Do and Green is Blue are two of Neil’s best piano ballads in a long time. Shut it down and Help me lose my mind bring the older more loping Crazy Horse from the Everybody Knows
This is Nowhere period. She showed me love
Has Neil and Nils Lofgren trading licks on a ten minute plus guitar jam. The record like a lot of great records gets better with every listen.

No one else sounds like Crazy Horse, but this album is not Ragged Glory, it's not Reactor and it certainly is not Everyone Knows This is Nowhere. But it's not bad. It has some clumsy lyrics as Neil's records are apt to have these days, but it has the unmistakable grind of the Ralph/Billy rhythm section. Poncho is out , Nils is in. There are some trademark long rambling jams and some shorter less interesting ballads. I'm glad I picked it up, it won't get the same play time as Rust Never Sleeps, but after all the dross Neil has out recently, this will do.
Gefallen getan. Angekündigt als Nachfolger einstiger Großtaten mit Crazy Horse enttäuscht der neue Longplayer auf ganzer Linie. Viel uninspiriertes Geschrammel mit einfachen plakativen Ökobotschaften. Zum Glück hat er uns eine Lobhymne auf Darling Greta erspart.
Nichts gegen die löbliche Absicht, aber dermaßen plakativ und ohne jegliches sprachliches Esprit kam der alte Neil selten daher. Apropos alt: Er konnte noch nie richtig singen, aber was er hier stimmlich abliefert, lässt ernstlich um seinen Gesundheitszustand fürchten.
Ich kann nur empfehlen, lieber auf eines der in letzten Jahren reichlich erschienenen Live -Alben zurückzugreifen.
The folky numbers are nice enough but a little pointless, the rockers are suitably rough and ready like prime CH but it’s all a little forced and really doesn’t differ from any of NY’s latter albums.
I found some of the lyrics very childish and sixth form (The Rainbow stuff although very well meaning is very embarrassing).
The production is particularly strange, everything low in the mix, you need to listen to this LOUD. This is another reason why the bite and grit of prime NY and CH is lost on this album, I don’t want my stereo rattling the windows just so I can hear the scrapes of strings and hiss of amps.
Still, it’s better than most other such rubbish in the charts.
The music produced here is a pale facsimile of what came before from the power house Crazy Horse. Disappointed totally.
