@madboy It is a great song. Everybody remembers "Streets of Philadelphia" by Springsteen from the soundtrack (and rightly so, it is a very good song), but NY's contribution is a classic, too. Heartbreaking and beautiful.
Trans is most definitely terrific, upper-echelon Neil. The album that just hit me this week, though, is Le Noise. Awesome stuff! Not sure what I wasn't hearing the first ten, fifteen times... it's atmospheric, adventurous, sad, heavy, dark, raggedy in that classic Neil way, with a totally unique sound and perspective. I've been coming around on a whole lot of latter-day Neil in fact, stuff I'd thought was way below the level of his '70s and '80s excellence. Can't say I subscribe to that view at all anymore.
So Neil doesn't allow streaming anymore because of terrible quality. AM radio and cassette tapes were better? I really wish someone who is close to him would pull him aside and explain how ridiculous a notion this is.
I like Monsanto Years. Some of the songs rank up there with his best for a while- rules of change, if i don't know and a new day for love are really solid tunes. This is much better than I first thought it would be. The record has so much soul and rocks real hard. Wolf man is his greatest acoustic song since without rings and razor love, which I also love.
i think neil is currently surrounded by some really thickheaded hippies who are manipulating him to believe that gmo is evil. i mean come on... there are way more important issuses in the world right now. who gives a shit about gmo? its all passe and scientifically proven that its not only safe but its our only solution to the world's food crisis and already helped millions of people from starvation
