    Fu##in up sounds great! Ragged in all its glory !


    Who puts out killer albums three decades into their career? Neil, that’s who. Ragged, Moon, Freedom, if I don’t mention Mirrorball, then what?

    So. I was gonna grab this, but didn't see f..king up on the tracklist...then I read that they changed all the names of the songs?

    Yeah. It was really interesting that they did that. If you can still find it you should get it. It is great.

    I love Neil and the Horse of course, but at some point I feel compelled to not buy every release he puts out, not because they aren't worth hearing, but because of dollar and cents, and space (the final frontier).

    So tell me fans, on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 meaning buying an old rusty hammer would be better expenditure, and 10 being meaning of the gods, you must have this or risk going to hell) where would you rank this purchase?

    Edit: of course, I'm referring to Fu##in' up

    I can’t tell you. Skipped the last six or seven NY releases. I truly feel like he’s been phoning it in for a while.

    Have to admit, some of Neils stuff is definitely not up to par these days.  But when I think about his age, the long road he's been on, the multiple health issues he's battle, I think phoning in beats the alternative, and when he still makes the magic happen now and then like he did on that version of "Cortez the Killer" from the 24th in San Diego, I'm thanking the heaven he's still out there doing it. 

    So OK, waiting for the votes to come in.  F##in' Up, One to Ten, let's hear it, folks.

    I’d give F##in' Up about a 6 or a 7. To me it’s a solid album, but part of my slightly lower score is because it’s not my favourite source material, I.E., Ragged Glory isn’t one of my go to Neil albums. Still a very good listen and I suspect bigger fans of Ragged Glory would like this one even more.

    I noticed this on FU and Now and Then. Neil finally sounds OLD.

    I’ll always take a live album of Neil’s over a new studio release. FU is a 5 or a 6. Always nice to hear the horse outta the barn. Not essential but the band can still play.

    Like every Neil release for the past decade. Wait a year and get it from Amazon for half the price.

    That's what I'm doing at the moment or off ebay. I managed to pick up 15 cd albums recently on ebay for £40. All released from last 15 years.

    Thanks guys.  Yeah, I think waiting on this one is the way to go.  I love Neil, but I've got my eye on some other things I'm more exited about like the long overdue reissues of both the dBs Stand For Decibels and the Blake Babies Earwig.

    Fu##in’ Up is pretty solid release, it’s definitely ragged and raw like The Horse should be.

    I think Way Down In The Rust Bucket is a much better live album though, and it has 8 of the 9 songs that are on FU.

    Yes, I've heard good things about Way Down In The Rust Bucket.  Another one to consider, for sure.  Thing is, if I were to get every LP and box set Neil ever put out, I'd have to shore up the foundation under my room first!

    Rust Bucket is an amazing live album, I love it. The vinyl box set is lovely as well. He does release way too much stuff for me to keep up with but Rust Bucket was a must-buy for me and it didn't let me down!

    It worth having if only for Over and Over. As far as I’m concerned it’s the definitive recording of that track.

    You can pick this up cheap too. I know you’re not an Amazon fan, but if youre cool with eBay there are new copies for $35-38 shipped.

    Looks like Austin has been postponed due to the lightning. That’s shitty luck for everyone that got there.
