EDITORS’ NOTES

Dubbed the Godfather of Grunge in the early ‘90s for his crunchy, gnarled work with Crazy Horse—and for choosing distortion lovers like Sonic Youth as concert openers—Neil Young proved his nickname outright with Mirror Ball, a 1995 collaboration with Pearl Jam. Opening with the crackling, shanty-like riffage of “Song X,” the players tear through one thundering steamroller after another, with tracks like “I’m the Ocean” sounding more massive than anything either band has done.
