There's Neil Young, there's Neil Young with Crosby, Stills & Nash, there's Neil Young in folky country-rock mode, and then there's Neil Young with Crazy Horse. This sprawling album (one song, the epic lead track "Driftin' Back," comes in just shy of 30 minutes long all on its own) finds Young and the Horse delivering a state-of-the-union garage guitar blast that rivals past landmark albums from the group like Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Rust Never Sleeps, and Ragged Glory.
