    The songs in my opinion were very bland. But hey, we all have our opinions. Hope you enjoy it, but I'll stick to his previous albums which were very good. That's kind of obvious. :)

    Neil Young is a groovey old man but love Bush or hate him, he deserves better protests songs then these half-baked anthems. I mean, "Ohio" it aint..

  1. "Living With War" -- irate, passionate, tuneful, thoughtful and obstinate -- is definitely worth a click.
  2. Living With War's short gestation benefits Young's performance, inspiring him to make his loudest, rawest release of new material since at least Ragged Glory, maybe even Rust Never Sleeps.
  3. Living With War is instantly the most incisive and penetrating album that Young has released in years, and it is arguably the most vital of his career.
