Kudos to Neil Young and his eclectic ideas. His newest record Le Noise features Neil, his vocals and an electric guitar only, backed by an amplifier turned to 11 and heavy post-production work. It is nice to hear Young isn’t afraid to take chances as he grows older. While I wouldn’t quite consider Le Noise to be an essential piece of the Neil Young catalogue but it is far from his worst work. Highlights worth checking out include Sign Of Love and the one break from the electric guitar bombast, Peaceful Valley Boulevard.
