Review: Neil Young’s one-man power play (Chicago Tribune)

Greg Kot says:

Solo guitar show raises the roof at Chicago Theatre
May 08, 2011|By Greg Kot | Music critic | for Chicago Tribune

One man, one guitar, one big sound. Neil Young orchestrated his solo concert Friday – the first of two-sold shows at the Chicago Theatre – for maximum impact. He started slow and quiet and built to a rafter-rattling finale.

An early acoustic tune nailed the night’s theme…


Sound was as crucial as sense. Though feedback has always been an aspect of Young’s electric playing, on this night it was a central focus. He was like a landscape painter, splashing voluptuous colors around the theater with reverb and creating a series of overlapping overtones that constantly threatened to bury his voice. “Rumblin’ ” did indeed rumble balcony seats; here was a concert that was felt as well as heard.

Pearl Jam is a band I have a lot of respect for. Nirvana and Sonic Youth I feel the same way about. Mumford & Sons, My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Givers, and Foo Fighters are just some of my favorites. I respect bands that give me something of themselves that I can feel. (\"Posing\" bands turn me off generally speaking.) It all has to do with a feeling I have about them. That is what music is to me, a feeling. It\'s similar with people too.
