Buy Neil Young's latest record Psychedelic Pill!

I'm more excited and amazed by this record than any other in at least 10 years.

It's just an incredible masterpiece.

85 minutes of music on two CDs at a low price.  Amazing.

For a taste, go to Youtube and search for "Giant on the Land."


My wife and I and some friends saw him in concert at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia 10 days ago.  AMAZING show!

Now I'm on a Neil Young kick.  Bought a lot of his records and his great 2012 autobiography (which is extremely interesting and inspiring) and also the memoir about him by his accomplished journalist father (Neil & Me by Scott Young).

But today finally the CD for his 2012 release Psychedelic Pill arrived!

Best record I've heard in many years!

The tone is just simply indescribable.  It's really, really special.  Needs to be played very loud on good speakers.  And I've got some very high quality old AR speakers that absolutely kick ass.  I get MUCH better sound from my computer with these old speakers than from my other audio set up with expensive Bose speakers.

If you google Neil Young, as I've been doing, he puts a LOT of thought into this.  It's all recorded on old tube mixers and amps.  It just sounds GREAT!

This is an acquired taste, for sure, but if you like old fashioned 70s rock, this is a RIGHTEOUS RIGHTEOUS album!!!!

Nobody mastered feedback better than Neil, including Jimi.

And no, I'm not stoned or drunk, not yet at least.

Be aware, by the way, that MP3s only get about 5% of the data and thus their sound is totally washed out.  You need to hear the real sound.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
