    Join the Dixie Chicks

    You just alienated have of whatever audience you have left. The shut up and sing guy had it right. I've bought almost every Neil album up until now. You might as well shout out "I love Satan" in a church setting. There are those of us who believe that unwanted war (and all war is unwanted) strikes fear in the all the would be evil people in the world who would turn into followers of evil if it were not for brave people fighting evil because it's right to punish evil and all of it's bands. The side benefit is that just like all local police departments, they're a strong deterant to more evil in the community even if there are people who cry out what a shame and crime against humanity for us to punish and put fellow humans in jail. Neil Young has so much money he probably could care less if I buy anymore of his cd's, but at least it will save me from having to spend any further. The sad thing is it sours the great music of his past. Now I'll never be able to sit down and have a relaxing listen to Harvest in the same way again.

    ALMOST AS MUCH OF A DISASTER AS BUSH

    I was never a Neil Young fan - in fact I'd never even known who Neil Young was until i heard "Far from Home" on the radio. I was facinated and bought Prairie Wind, and no mistake that album is amazing. I had assumed he would take a break, but in less than half a year he released Living with War. Remembering songs I had loved like "Far from Home" and "He was the King", I wasted $18 on the new album. Alright, this album is aweful. You can tell he was just jumping on the antibush bandwagon (others would include Dixie Chicks, Green Day, Pink, Madonna, and Bruce Springstein)because the entire album was made in less than a month. All the rhythms and beats are the same, just with different lyrics and titles (known of which are even remotely good). The only song with even a little potential is 'Looking for a Leader'. Bush has been a disaster to our nation, but so is this album.

    Anybody have a barf bag?

    I was unfortunate enough to be caught in a car with a friend that had this masterpiece. He really should have retired, this is a collection of some of the most trite garbage ever assembled. I don't like Bush but I would think about supporting him if this is the best our music industry has to offer. Let there be no mistake, this isn't the 60's and the music coming out against the Prez and war are not 60's quality. It seems more like someone trying to cash in on dissent as opposed to actually making a viable statement.

    Shut up and sing (something else)

    I love Neil Young, but won't buy this. I'm always amazed that entertainers think I need to know their politics. If I went to work and spewed forth my political viewpoint, I'd be fired. I realize this is something a person can choose not to buy, but you can be certain this will show up as part of a set at a concert. If I pay good money for a concert, keep your political views, conservative or liberal, to yourself!
