Neil Young live at the end of the world

Another review of the New Zealand show by correspondent Derek Pringle from “The Telegraph.” He aptly labels Neil as “one of the great songwriters of his time.”

neil1_2524840aInteresting review that compares Young’s performance to Sixto Rodriquez, who had managed to fill a smaller arena in Wellington a week earlier.

Obviously a fan, Pringle describes a sublime scene in the Neil Young with Crazy Horse show that leaves a lasting impression.

He writes:

“There is a moment, about two hours into Neil Young’s sell-out concert at the Vector Arena in Auckland, where he plants his left index finger on the top string of his guitar and grinds it slowly up the fret board incanting many of his great albums as he goes.

The slowly ascending note is meant to indicate time travel, backwards, but Young is just showing off as he lists the gems in his back catalogue — Rust Never Sleeps, Tonight’s the Night, Harvest, After the Gold Rush, Everyone Knows This is Nowhere etc etc.”

Another meatier review from the New Zealand Herald

“Dressed in flannel shirt, Aboriginal flag t-shirt , workboots and comfortable jeans, a jowly Young reworked some of his vast past without sentimentality. He was in fine voice and – despite a strapped right wrist – ferocious guitar.”

Random Quote

Neil Young\'s new musical novel - it\'s far too linear and literal to be called a concept album - is underproduced, overconceived, and equal parts annoying, intriguing, and gratifying. In other words, vintage Neil Young.
