    Nope, Psychedelic Pill was a fantastic studio album.

    I liked Psychedelic Pill and Colorado a lot.

    It’s not "pointless" at all. There are some really good songs on Barn - Welcome Back, They Might Be Lost, Human Race, Change Ain't Never Gonna...

    Not counting Homegrown or Hitchhiker, I would agree that Neil's last truly great album was Psychedelic Pill.
    However, Chrome Dreams II and Le Noise are also great albums that are more recent than Living With War.
    There's also a lot to like on Peace Trail, The Visitor and Colorado.

    Yeah. No. 

    Fork in the road is underrated though. 

    And Lenoise is really good.

    I want to see all of you who are dissing Barn to show me when you are 75 to 80 years old how you are kicking ass and doing top notch work.  You will have one up on me, I know that.  At 70 years of age, and 5 to 9 years younger than Neil and the guys, their latest work kicks my ass down the stairs, that's for sure.  It will be interesting to see (though doubtful I'll be around to see it) you guys do the same at that age.

    Oh, I love Barn.  I just listened to the who thing for the first time.  I could die tomorrow and be happy and content.  No drama, just the truth.
    Long live the Horse!

    I don't see the point here. 

    The lyrics are still shit. (Some of) The songs cringey. 

    They don't have to be. Even with him being 75. 

    Did you hear Leonard Cohens last album? Have you heard Neil Young and Crazy Horse's Broken Arrow?

    So, in this discussion I do have a one up in you. Already. Not being 75 or 80 years.

    The album is, like most churned out Neil albums of late not all that good. I would still die defending Neil doing whatever he wants and his "no fucks given" attitude to fans and perfection. And defend his guitar tone. SECOND ONLY TO ACE FREHLEY'S. AM I RITE PEEPS?!?!

    so how was the stern interview?
  • Edved82Edved82 IrelandPosts: 1,155
    The thing that I love most about Neil is that it's his own journey and he doesn't care about anyone else's opinion. For me, Barn is a good solid late career album with some real highlights and a few clunky moments. That's fine by me. Just glad that Neil and the Horse are still around and making solid music that's worth listening to.

    You don't need to see the point.  I love the music.  I am HUGELY grateful that Neil Young and Crazy Horse still walk this earth.  I really don't care if you feel the same way about Barn as I do.  To me, this is not a right or wrong thing.  There is no definitive opinion here.

    I think the lyrics are fine, sorry you don't like them.

    Yes I have heard Cohen's last album.  It's great.  Yes, I have played Broken Arrow many times on my turn table and I love that album.  I also love Barn

    I have no idea what you mean by "So, in this discussion I do have a one up in you. Already. Not being 75 or 80 years."  Unless you are a hell of a lot older than I think you are, neither of us is 75 or 80 years old.

    I agree with this 100%
    Most albums have a clunky moment or two and that’s ok. There are certainly more highs than lows and I’ll take that.

    Lovely song, this one. There's some really great moments on Barn and this is definitely one of them. I've really liked Colorado and Barn. Missing that Poncho element but Nils is obviously a great fit too.

    Special word for Ralph and Billy as well, great to still have those guys around and playing with Neil!

    Barn has really grown on me, its a great album apart from the last song, which is an instant skip. Other than that one, good job fellas!

    I'm thinking of leaving it sealed and selling it to some sucker years down the road.  I do have the CD after all and it sounds great.  I'm sure I will break down and listen eventually.

    My Massey Hall has been sitting in my son's house about an hour and a half away for the past 2 weeks. It was in stock at the B&N in the town he lives in. I ordered it online and he picked it up. I should be getting it Saturday when he comes for Christmas.  

  • Edved82Edved82 IrelandPosts: 1,155
    Also got my Massey Hall copy today, and it sounds fantastic. Believe the hype.

    It sounds awesome, I couldn’t wait to keep it sealed for the next asshole.    Wow.  It sounds better than the cd I’ve been listening to all this time 
  • static111static111 Posts: 3,548
    sooooooooo goood

    Massey Hall is such a beautiful sounding record. I’m so happy for everyone that has managed to get a hold of one now.
