    The more I listen to Americana, the more I realize how vital these traditional songs sound when Neil and the Horse start to groove off of each other.

    Neil playing loose and groovy, the way he likes it. Some of these songs seem like first takes, which is fine because Neil probably couldn't hit a wrong note if he wanted to. The production is open and clear too.

    Neil and his Band in great shape. Truly American way of making music. I recommend it to everyone who's tired of crap streamed by mainstream radio stations.

    The fun doesn't always translate to the listener. [Jul 2012, p.113]

    The album comes over as a political parable as much as an investigation into the spirit of place. [Jun 2012, p.56]

    While the power-soak guitar solos ard gung-ho buck of Crazy Horse are present and correct, it's curious that Americana packs songs that don't fit its brief. [Jul 2012, p.88]
