NEIL YOUNG "a letter home"
i really dont know where to start with this one..........?
i guess, recorded in a converted 1950s "record yourself"
music booth at Jack White's Nashville studio...
sound is very distant,echoed, Neil;s voice fades in and out
depending on which way he is facing in the booth...
quite simply, nothing has been engineered or produced on this
covers set which with the tracklisting could have been so much more
than it turned out.
there's just nothing here that is remotely likeable, and that really
says a lot coming from me as im a huge Neil Young fan.
infact,this album(somewhere around #50 in his career), is so bad
it makes his early 1980s electronic piece of crap "trans"
look like a Grammy winner...
sorry Neil,its time you either stick to what you are good at,
stop recording on a whim, and either do it properly or
bugger off back home to Ontario,and become a recluse in an igloo
and leave us fans to enjoy the "real neil".
my score for this album: 1.0
(but im sure the allmusic pro's will love it)
