New Release Round-Up 12-09-16
NEIL YOUNG - Peace Trail - Reprise
Peace Trail features all new songs that Neil Young wrote since the release of his album Earth, this past June. This new album is primarily acoustic and reflects an intimate, sparse approach to each of the ten songs within: “Neil Young matches the fire in his belly to the poetry from his pen for one of the most gripping outings of his long career. This riveting collection, a spare acoustic-electric hybrid, seethes with righteous indignation over a plethora of social and political injustices, but also soothes with deeply felt empathy for those on the receiving end of iniquity." -- Los Angeles Times / Randy Lewis
