Neil Young and Crazy Horse: Psychedelic Pill

"Psychedelic Pill is the thirty-fifth studio album by Canadian musician Neil Young. It was released on October 30, 2012. This is the second release of a Neil Young collaboration with Crazy Horse in 2012, and their first original work together since the Greendale album and tour in 2003 and 2004. ... At 87 minutes, Psychedelic Pill is Neil Young's longest album and only studio album to span two discs. Many of the songs on the album came out of extended jam sessions with Crazy Horse after Americana was recorded. The opening track 'Driftin' Back' makes references to Young's new memoir 'Waging Heavy Peace' and his disdain for MP3s in between extended jamming. ... Overall, Psychedelic Pill has received positive reviews. Rolling Stone gave the album four stars and said 'it has the roiling honesty and brutal exuberance of their best records.' Douglas Heselgrave, writing for Paste Magazine, said: 'Psychedelic Pill may be the best album Neil Young has ever done with Crazy Horse. It'll take years to figure out.' Dan Stubbs, giving the album 8 out of 10 stars for NME, writes: 'two tracks here – "Ramada Inn" and "Walk Like A Giant" – could sit among Young's best.' ... The album was listed at #10 on Rolling Stone's list of the top 50 albums of 2012, saying 'This is as inspiringly strange as anything he's done'" (Wikipedia).
