A couple of months back, i read that Neil Young‘s new record was being produced by Daniel Lanois, a veteran musician and producer who can turn shit to gold.

So what could he do when he starts off with gold? Well now we know! “Le Noise” is sonically unexpected, intimate and brilliantly powerful…

A masterpiece? Maybe.
Worth your hard earned cash? Definitely!
Don’t believe me? Well you’re in luck! You can preview the whole record right now!

This is classic Neil Young to be sure, but also somehow new.

The whole record boils down to Neil, his guitar and 2 amps, yet is the heaviest thing i’ve heard in a long time…

A perfect title in so many ways, “Le Noise” (get it?) is a must have if you’ve ever even thought about buying a Neil Young record…

What i love most about this record, is it seems so effortless. Maybe i’m wrong and it was a bitch to make, but in my mind, this is the result of 2 geniuses having some fun, pressing record and seeing what the got. Now i’m no Neil expert or anything so I won’t try to rate this among his catalogue, but that’s not really the point anyway. An artist of his caliber deserves to put out music just because. I think too many acts these days are overly concerned with making the best record the world has ever heard. Which is one of the reasons many artists can only put out 2 or 3 albums in 10 years. I don’t care about all the marketing bullshit that goes with music, just give me the music now thank you very much. I’ll pay for it, if you release it. Transaction complete…
