NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE / Psychedelic Pill [2012]

After the crapfest that was Americana from earlier in the year, Neil Young & Crazy Horse release their 2nd album of 2012, the 2-CD opus Psychedelic Pill with far better results. 
A sober trip back into mildly sour nostalgia and bittersweet memoirs, through swampy textures and tingles of distorted guitars that flow with ease through many tracks that are laid back jam sessions.  Bouncing back and forth between a variety of moods, Pill is Neil Young & Crazy Horse in the comfort zone, that maybe American helped them get into to record a quality album of this size.
