Fork in the Road is charmingly clunky, a side effect of its quick creation and Young's hard-headedness. Neil might be writing records as quickly as a blogger these days but musically he's stuck in the past, never letting go of his chunky Les Paul and candied folk harmonies.
SamAApr 8, 2009Another brilliant album from the Godfather of Grunge.
AdamGApr 10, 2009"Just Singing a Song" and "Light a Candle" are timeless Neil tracks. (Yes, the chorus for "Just Singing a Song" borrows a bit from "Love and Only Love," but it still has a lot of charm.) I agree with Rolling Stones' comments ("funny, messy, crazy"), but not their rating. It's a loveable mish-mash that mgiht take a while to grow on you, but give it some time and it will.… Expand

SalMApr 8, 2009Why can't old entertainers simply stick to entertaining? I don't give a shit what Neil's political, economic, environmental, or sexual views are. If you insist on hanging on so damn long, rehash your old emotional feelings of love, longing, desperation, sorrow, etc. If you can't do that, then drift off into instrumental songs, or simply drift off.… Expand
VaughnAMay 27, 2009Another disposable Neil Young record. I have an idea, let's cancel Neil's Newsweek subscription and see if he's capable of writing an album worthy of himself. Turn inward again Neil 'cause all you're doing is preachin' to the choir and putting them to sleep.… Expand
