9 Songs, 1 Hour 27 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

2012 was filled with activity for Neil Young and his beloved Crazy Horse. Young not only published his first memoir and maintained a full concert calendar; he and Crazy Horse also released two new albums. The first release, Americana, revisited a variety of traditional material; Psychedelic Pill is another beast entirely. The group's first batch of entirely new material in nearly a decade is ripe with cosmic jams and heavenly harmonies. The opener, "Driftin' Back” (an exploratory groove that's over 27 minutes long), sets the mood for the album—a winding and wondrous expression of passion backed with feedback and solid interplay between guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro, drummer Ralph Molina, and bassist Billy Talbot. The final track, "Walk Like a Giant," is a hypnotic tale of destruction and rebirth, one of Young's finest melodies in years.

This is one of my favorite albums by Neil Young and Crazy Horse. The long songs never get boring but instead just transport you on a Psychedelic trip of great music and emotion.
