In the Daniel Lanois interview about the making of the Neil Young album, Le Noise, he talks about the intensity that resonates within the house as Neil rails upon each chord. In the video for the song “Angry World” you can hear exactly what Daniel is talking about.
If you have yet to pick up this album because either A.) You’re not a Neil Young fan or B.) You’re a stubborn fan who’d rather hear a band backing up Neil, Crazy Horse perhaps, then you’re sorely missing out on some sonic goodness.
This is clearly not the type of album you put on while cooking after a hard day at work, unless you’re cooking an angry chili with fire peppers. Instead, pop it in when looking for someone to vent those frustrations away. Neil is more than happy to take over those duties and on Le Noise he executes the mad man persona with perfection. Rock on Neil.
