A truly excellent album and a testament to Neil Young's incredible skills as a songwriter and musician.

Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young has been churning out albums of considerable worth for much of his career, though not without dividing his critics and even his own fan base at times. Vehemently headstrong and individualistic, Young has (mostly) always gone by his own agenda with little thought for current musical trends and a seemingly complete disregard for the opinions of anyone else. It's his way or the highway. But it's that sort of determination which attracts many music lovers to his growing body of work. Plus, he is bloody good at what he does. When he's on form, he's mesmerising. And when he's not, his music is almost entirely unapproachable even to the most hardened of fans.

Take his past two albums for example: both released in 2012. 'Americana', a collection of folk songs, was praised by highbrow critics but many fans wanted to hear Young and Crazy Horse crank out those electric guitars and show the world why they're one of the best and most influential garage rock bands of all time. Skip to later in the year and they released 'Psychedelic Pill', their thirty-fifth album, which is just the sort of electrically-charged rock that we've come to expect from this band.

Many of the songs on this opus came out of jam sessions after the recording of 'Americana' and you can tell that's the case with the twenty-seven minute long opening track 'Driftin' Back', where you can hear in the lyrics of Young's dislike of the Mp3. There are some fantastic moments recalling the best Young's classic work. 'Ramada Inn' and 'Walk Like A Giant' are probably two of the best songs he's recorded in decades and right up there with the best.

So, 'Psychedelic Pill' shows that Young has still got what it takes to make music of high regard. It's a truly excellent album and a testament to his incredible skills as a songwriter and musician.
