      Disadvantages

      thoroughly mediocre

      Yet another Neil Young 1980's genre experiment, even if this isn't as dire as previous efforts, it's still a long way from the greatness Young seems to effortlessly attain on occasion. It's a kind of R&B/Blues hybrid with a tinge of rock thrown in, aided by a 6 piece horn section.

      Young's typical sense of humour is present & helps things along, & while he sounds more involved here than on much of his 80's output, there's still some essential ingredients missing. Much of the material here is mediocre, & while the title track is the stand-out, it is a track better remembered for it's award winning music video, which featured Young lambasting corporate rock in all it's forms, & pretty successfully.

      Yet Young has set himself very high standards in the past, standards to which an album like this will never reach. 'Life in the City' is probably the only other memorable cut here, & much of the rest is made up of forgettable filler. This is by no means his worst release of the 80's, but it did little to educate the MTV generation on precisely what it was that made Neil Young great in the 70's.
