Psychedelic Pill is Neil Young & Crazy Horse's second album of 2012 following Americana.
Neil Young, who began performing as a solo artist in 1960, is still plugging away to bring us a smoldering record that sees him at his best with Crazy Horse.
Whether as a singer, a songwriter or a guitarist, Neil Young has been one of the most influential and important artists of the rock era. Blending folk, country and rock, the acoustic and the electric, the melancholy and the hopeful, Young has been an icon for the uncompromising and unpredictable since the 1960s.
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 Youngs forthcoming Waging Heavy Peace, and the writing of that autobiography. It begins with a brilliant trick which I wont 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. Its 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 youll like it..." - John Mulvey, Uncut.co.UK/blog
"An extraordinary record... The next chapter in what has been a compelling last decade of music making." - Uncut Magazine
