    White people should not be appropriating the name Crazy Horse. You guys have no idea who he was and what kinds of activism are necessary to bring about the justice he believed in.

    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.

    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.

    He's still evolving, and though the double CD Psychedelic Pill is far from nostalgic, he's spending a helluva lot of time looking back. [No. 94, p.61]

    As a collection, Psychedelic Pill is spotty and, at times, sleep-inducing.

    Soft-focus memories echo through all 88 minutes. [Dec 2012, p.89]
