180g Vinyl 3LP Cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Studios & Pressed at Pallas!

First Album of Original Music From neil Young With Crazy Horse In Almost A Decade!

Psychedelic Pill is Neil Young & Crazy Horse's second album of 2012 following Americana. The 180g Vinyl Triple LP contains music on five sides with the sixth side featuring etched artwork.

Crazy Horse guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro told Rolling Stone "It's us jamming and having lots of fun... I think that [former Crazy Horse producer] David Briggs would be proud of it... "

"...Right around the time of Americana was finished, I started writing again, so I just kept on going. Pretty soon I had enough songs for a second album." - Neil Young as told to Uncut magazine

"..The pill, really, is a metaphor for flashbacks. “Driftin’ Back”, in particular, is concerned with what may be the substance of Young’s forthcoming “Waging Heavy Peace”, and the writing of that autobiography. It begins with a brilliant trick – which I won’t spoil just yet – and soon locks into a languorous and beautiful series of solos, erratically punctuated by random Young pensées on the subjects of MP3s, hip-hop haircuts, Picasso wallpaper and so on. It’s not related to the “Horse Back” jam, but it has that same deep-pile pleasure. If you believe, not unreasonably, that Young simply playing the shit out of an electric guitar is about as good as music gets, I think you’ll like it..." - John Mulvey,

"This sublimely recorded AAA production produced the opposite effect. I sat through all five sides in one sitting, volume cranked to almost stupid levels and there before me was Neil, his voice so transparent, so believably there. Behind him was Ralph Molina, each beat played with meaning, and just in front of him was bassist Billy Talbot hitting depth charged notes, each of which had clearly defined string transients and textural and harmonic details, making each note an event. To either side were Neil's and Frank Sampedro's gloriously gnarly three-dimensionally placed guitars. Connecting all of the parts was a sensuous wash of three-dimensional reverberant energy." - Michael Fremer,, 9/10 Music, 11/10 Sound!
