Neil Young: Le Noise
Buy! - (Reprise)
The veteran rocker’s latest album is a fascinating collaborative effort with producer Daniel Lanois. Young recorded it just using his voice and guitar (often playing an acoustic/electric hybrid), and then Lanois added some echo and delay effects, but that’s it – no overdubbing, and no other musicians were used in this recording. Amazingly, the sound is full, though grungy and raw, which fits these lyrically direct songs of love, betrayal, death and disintegration. Le Noise is another brave entry in Young’s hefty catalog, and it’s also one of his finest latter-day albums. 9/23/2010 - Don Yates
