New Neil Young album: er, pass…

April 7, 2009
I almost bought Fork In The Road, the new Neil Young album, on auto-pilot.

Then I remembered the recent Young albums I can hardly bear to listen to any more – Greendale, Living With War et al: heavy-handed political diatribes with leaden lyrics for a lumpen audience.

So I checked out the early reviews of Fork In The Road to get an idea of the new album’s content – and found it’s eco-warrior stuff… commentary on the US economy…

By an expat multi-millionaire entertainer?

No thanks.

On the other hand, the set lists for the tour Young has just started in the Maritime Provinces look tempting – wish I’d booked for Nottingham!
