About this album

Greendale is the name of an album and a movie, both released in 2003, by Neil Young. Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s Greendale, a 10-song rock opera, is set in a fictional California seaside town. Based on the saga of the Green family, the “audio novel” has been compared to the literary classics of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town and Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio for its complexity and emotional depth in exploring a small town in America.

Greendale combines numerous themes on corruption, environmentalism and mass media consolidation into relevant post-9/11 art. The album, concert, film and DVDs have produced a vast divergence of critical opinion ranging from being called “amateur” to being voted as one of the best albums of 2003 by Rolling Stone magazine music critics.
The CD was originally released with a DVD of live “Neil-only” acoustic performance of the Greendale material from Vicar Street, Dublin, Ireland. In 2004, the CD was released with a new DVD containing a live performance of Neil Young and Crazy Horse. A DVD-Audio version was also released, with both Advanced Resolution Stereo and 5.1 Surround sound mixes, and a video of “Devil’s Sidewalk” from the film. In late 2004, the feature length DVD with actors lip-synching the material was released.
In 2007, Vertigo Comics announced the production of the comic book adaptation of the album with the same title.[1] According to writer Joshua Dysart, Neil Young is directly involved in the project.[2]

    I was expecting Grandpa's Interview to be a piece of crap. After hearing it its one of my favourite NY tunes.

    the movie and especially the acoustic live performances really helped me a lot with understanding what he's singing about. i think that's the beauty of this album, you can really get to know all of these characters and discover something new with every listen. the songs for themselves may not be his best but all together they add up to something really great

    This is a seriously underrated piece of work. "Bandit" and "Be the Rain" are fantastic. I was lucky enough to have seen of one the Radio City Music Hall shows in 2004 and the visual performance really added to the experience. Rock on Neil...

    Another awesome album. Although I don't understand the text at all, I absolutely dig the guitar work.
