I enjoyed the review this morning by Washington Post rock critic J. Freedom du Lac of Neil Young’s “Living With War” disc, released online late last week (available via our post last Friday evening): “Neil Young’s antiwar howl.” Du Lac concludes his review with a reference to Power Line:
“Living With War” is way more about ideology than music, with Young’s political statements standing front and center. Let’s just say that you might like this album if you have Daily Kos set as your Internet home page. If your daily routine begins with Michelle Malkin or Power Line, “Living With War” is going to make you mad as hell. Which is pretty much the point.
I understand the point, but I’d say, given the quality of Young’s writing on the disc, that it’s going to make you laugh like hell. At least it did me.
