Concert Review: The Age about Melbourne

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
The Plenary, March 13

Neil Young was up for pushing air around. He was in the mood to ram the laws of harmony through coils and cables until they bent the fabric of the universe, or else rupture the bowels of Satan trying. He also did Heart of Gold. In his sleep.

The disengaged solo acoustic flashback served two purposes. In terms of context, the easy listening nugget dovetailed ingeniously with Twisted Road, one of the more personal, reflective songs on his latest album with Crazy Horse, Psychedelic Pill.

It also showed the distance between the fireside singer-songwriter the world would love to have and hold, and the fringe-dwelling space-rock monster that long ago moved into the checked flannel shirt and stomped on every distortion device in sight.

“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.
