    Neil Young releases Living With War—a 10-song collection that the artist describes as a “metal folk protest”. “This album is about exchanging ideas,” Young told CNN in a live interview last week on the steps of Warner Bros./Reprise Records in Burbank. “It's about getting a message out. It's about empowering people by giving them a voice. I know not everyone believes what I say is what they think, but red and blue is not black and white. We're all together. It's a record about unification." Living With War has already set fans and the media abuzz over the Internet due to its reflections on the Iraqi war. It was written and recorded in two weeks with Young on electric guitar, vocals and harmonica, Chad Cromwell on drums, Rick Rosas on bass, and Tommy Bray on trumpet, along with a 100-member choir. One choir member, speaking to a British newspaper, said the recording session was “like being at a 12-hour peace rally.” It is not the first time the 60-year-old Canadian has touched on current events in his songwriting. In 2002, Young released “Let’s Roll,” a tribute to the passengers who died taking down the hijackers on United Flight 93 over Pennsylvania on September 11, and in 1970 wrote and recorded with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young the song “Ohio,” after four students were killed by the National Guard during a peace rally at Kent State University.

    Previews

    Rolling Stone (p.226) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n indictment of the sorry state of open debate in this country...It is also an impressive measure of Young's refusal to burn out or fade away that he states his case with clarity as well as dirty garage-trio momentum."
    Entertainment Weekly (p.82) - "The power-trio arrangements have a let-it-rip simplicity; the lyrics are like stream-of-consciousness postings." -- Grade: B+
    Q (p.113) - 4 stars out of 5-- "[A] revelation, brimming with passion and some of the best melodies Young has penned in the last 30 years."
    Q (p.121) - Ranked #38 in Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums of 2006" -- "A rare and vital victory for mixing politics and rock."
    Magnet (p.115) - "The album captured the country's disenchantment with a war it no longer supported..."
    The Wire (p.49) - "Now well into his fifth decade as a recording artist, Young remains a gratifyingly unpredicatable proposition, as restless and instinctive as ever."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Urgent, instant, bolshie mostly, with a stronger individual sense than, say, GREENDALE..."

    Notes

    Personnel: Neil Young (vocals); Neil Young; Darrell Brown (vocals); Rick Rosas (bass instrument); Tommy Bray (trumpet); Chad Cromwell (drums).
    Arranger: Neil Young.
    Neil Young has never been one to avoid political commentary. Ever since "Ohio," his classic anthem of moral outrage about the Kent State student massacre in 1970, Young's music has pulled no punches about the injustices of American policy both foreign and domestic. 2006's LIVING WITH WAR continues that trend; in fact, the album is the most overtly political of Young's long, dazzling career.
    A collection of protest songs that takes the Bush administration directly to task for their actions in Iraq and elsewhere, LIVING WITH WAR boils with outrage and aches with pathos (the grungy, midtempo opener "After the Garden" is a fine example of the latter). "Let's Impeach the President" and "Lookin' for a Leader" leave little question as to Young's opinion of George W., while the crunching, electric-guitar-heavy feel of the album underscores Young's bitter aggression. The album draws on the artist's lineage to the socially conscious activism of the 1960s, yet it feels energized, angry, contemporary, and timely, further highlighting Young's status as one of rock's longest-running and most integrity-driven heroes.
