Separating the wheat from the chaff since Ahhh, so close but no cigar. Chrome Dreams, Homegrown and Oceanside-Countryside are the three unreleased studio albums. Most are skeptical as to whether Neil will stick to the original planned album or update it to suit how he feels these days.
My thoughts are that Neil is a stickler for historical accuracy. When he is ready, he will present that album as it was intended in before the playback of Tonight's The Night led to a change of mind.
Regarding other material recorded during the time, expect to see those tracks appear on the timeline and file cabinet as standalone Aum Mau Mau - Fred Weinberg - The Weinberg Method Of Non-Synthetic Electronic Rock. As with Archives Vol. Just because it didn't make the cut for the album didn't mean it remained unreleased forever.
Lastly, it was sometime before we were ever able to disCERN the album's sub-title: "Never Known to Fail" down there at the bottom edge. Labels: albumarchiveshomegrownneil young. And now it's gone. But for those that missed this video with unseen footage, here's a recap and commentary. The newly released video contains unseen footage from Le Noise recording sessions in These two songs did not make it to "Le Noise" and were also included in on "Psychedelic Pill".
So it's a mystery how they managed to conclude with something as dull as the finished album. The main thing I notice is that they abandoned most of the best songs. And yes, Angry World has a great guitar tone. So there's no contest, really. That's what Le Noise has a lack of: great songs. And the trademark Lanois production, as exciting as it is, does little to disguise that. Whereas the sparser-sounding outtakes, beautifully captured on film, come across wonderfully: emotional, unpretentious and moving.
Every cloud has a silver lining, of course. Where it works brilliantly as a prologue to Walk Like A Giant. So the lesson I'm taking from that is not to decide too quickly whether something is a positive or negative. Or as Rick Danko said, "thank God for time". Though sometimes, of course, we'd all like it to go a bit slower, or sometimes a bit faster. The real cause for celebration is that Young and Co. That's what a proper Archive is, isn't it?
The cobwebbed-covered stuff that was hidden away behind the mixing desk "Where's the tape of LA Sports Arenaor Cal Expoor Hollywood ? That's what I wanna hear. And I'll pay extra for it, too".
And it's also exactly the sort of thing the website needs to create a bit of a buzz, a bit of excitement and word-of-mouth. And in the internet age, it needs to happen often.
I'll be arguing in favour of them adding more exciting stuff very soon, rather than retreating to the 90's strategy of releasing one album every 16 years. And the fanbase needs to respond to their generosity by watching and listening, by enjoying and sharing. That's how the word spreads, and that's how the website finds a route to on-going success. Thanks so much for the Comment of the Moment Scotsman. When we were putting this up the other day while watching and listening and multi-tasking away, we were pretty floored realizing this came out way back in ?!
Almost Here Comes That Sound - Various - Club Bizarre Vol. 2 Saint Joan - Budokan - Spin A Little Gold ago?! Seems like the day before yesterday, practically. So here's a look back at some Le Noise memories -- which were quite fond of pleased to recall.
We look forward to the return of Le Noise Sessions! What we saw and heard over those 3 concerts in the Spring time of was truly transformative and transcendental. Others had similar reactions while many were struck with the bleak starkness of some of the 7 new songs being debuted. Fast forward to the September 28, release of Le Noise and listeners are just now hearing the "sonics" which Producer Daniel Lanois has introduced in the post-production process.
So naturally, for those of us lucky to have experienced the raw and stripped down Le Noise tracks performed live, it is quite an exhilarating experience to re-discover so quickly the song's treatments with Lanois' studio touches. Muchmuchmuch has been made of this collaboration between Young and Producer Lanois. While it seems clear that the partnership works on many levels -- as evidenced not only by the results which speak for itself -- one can not help but plainly sense the apparent comfort and palpable mutual respect on display Cut Me Up - Har Mar Superstar - The Handler their numerous joint interviews.
So did Neil Young found his new David Briggs? Or was Lanois now Young's "Rick Rubin" with the magic touch? The other fascinating aspect of Le Noise was the reaction of critics who suddenly now were waxing rhapsodic in their reviews over the latest Neil Young release.
As if, lo and behold, Young has somehow re-emerged from the shadows of creativity and returned once again to form. As if there had ever been a "form" before.
See Player 1 a.k.a Ice P* - Commissary of Young's career ending moves for details. Our observation at this point on Le Noise is that it usually seems to take quite some time before a Neil Young album's significance emerges. So we spin the black circle And other Neil fans? And as a guitar player who also loves raw tones, gritty production and 'real' playing, there is a lot to love.
From the insane overdriven electric of Walk With Me to the gorgeous acoustic tone of Peaceful Valley Boulevard, Neil hits this one so far out of the park, the ball is the next county. I'd be surprised Here Comes That Sound - Various - Club Bizarre Vol. 2 Le Noise wasn't listed in many critics' year-end best of Here Comes That Sound - Various - Club Bizarre Vol.
2 . It's that kind of album. It takes risks and sounds ugly depending on one's perspective. I think this was the right album for Neil to make. He could have done something familiar, but he chose not to, and that's why he's still relevant. That said, it's a challenging album simply because the sounds aren't friendly or inviting like Harvest Moon or Ragged Glory for instance.
The lack of traditional instrumentation will prevent it from gaining wide acceptance. Neil has put out other challenging albums of course. Some have ultimately rewarded over time, others haven't so much. I won't even dare to speculate where Le Noise will fall.
Le Noise, however, is something entirely different. From a comment on this blog by Dan: Beyond the sonics which add richness and verve, the songs are excellent I've come around to Here Comes That Sound - Various - Club Bizarre Vol.
2 he's left that sadness off the album and instead, both on the album She - Kim Bonnington - Kim Bonnington in the interviews, is expressing, among other things, themes of resiliency and continuity, and within that he seems as vibrant, relevant, and fresh as he ever has.
He also seems relaxed, at peace, and comfortable with himself and his scene. Good stuff And how about those critics??? From Music Vice Album review: Neil Young — Le Noise — "The anti-pop star creates his ultimate anti-pop record" by Brian Banks: These days fewer Here Comes That Sound - Various - Club Bizarre Vol. 2 fewer artists seem to actually have something to say, and of those that do, not many are saying something worth hearing.
Pop has never been so pop. But what do we do than when we, the all-consuming music-buying public, want to hear something tangible? Something personal. Something that makes a statement — and no, not a fashion statement…we have plenty enough of that already. Something real.
Leave it to the epitomist Neil Young to come along with a new album that delivers something that is both very real and very much worth listening to. The anti-pop star has created his ultimate anti-pop record. But wait. Who's ever heard of Music Vice and what does a blog's opinion matter anyway? How about the elite professional music critics as compiled by Metacritic?
Metacritic From Chicago Tribune: The album is full of those kind Here Comes That Sound - Various - Club Bizarre Vol. 2 unexpected juxtapositions, a stunning statement from an artist who shows no signs of slowing down. Los Angeles Times: Le Noise is not an epic -— if it were a book, you could read it in an afternoon -— but it's statement enough from a Louca - Various - Filigranas Musicais - Volume XI who's already said so much.
Rolling Stone: Le Noise is also the most intimate and natural-sounding album Young has made in a long time: just a songwriter making his way through a vividly rendered chaos of memoir, affection and fear. Boston Globe: It builds a rich sonic arch around Young's voice and guitar, bottling the essence of what makes him such a compelling singer-songwriter at The Guardian: Le Noise demands more effort than some listeners might be willing to put in, but at its best, it repays that effort pretty handsomely.
In that sense at least, it pretty much sums up Neil Young's entire career. Also, see neilyoung. Yet in one line 'A mother screamed, and every soul was lost'Young's voice cracks on the peak note — an impulsive, moving flaw.
And the bloggers? The album was promoted on Facebook, Young debuted videos on Pitchfork and Stereogum, and the record is being released as an iPad and iPhone app. It sounds like a cheap marketing ploy. Social media?
