    Psychedelic Pill allows pretty haunted melodies like "She's Always Dancing" to seep into the gaps between the jagged solos. [2 Nov 2012, p.68]

    Psychedelic Pill, with all its gritty warmth and haunting memories, is among his homiest.

    It veers from cautious optimism, to sadness and to those odd moments where you feel anything's possible. Young and Crazy Horse continue to run free.

    Psychedelic Pill may be the best album Neil Young has ever done with Crazy Horse.

    A huge helping of subtle, loose and sprawling guitar psychedelia for your next road (or home) trip. Two of the shorter tracks are out of place and therefore throwaways hence the 8. Would be a 9 if not for that. Full Review »

    Psychedelic Pill follows on the heels of Americana, and like that bent yet outstanding imagining of traditional songs in a rockin' vernacular that only Neil and the Horse ride with joyful freedom, this bunch of close to 90 minutes of untethered, free-range rock 'n' roll among an alliance of friends shakes with wild abandon.
