The Monsanto Years by Neil Young + Promise Of The Real

Album

Released:
Label: Reprise
The concept behind The Monsanto Years should be obvious enough: Watch out, Big Agra -- Neil is gunning for you! As is the case with a great deal of Young's political work, his lyrics are simple, direct and charmingly clumsy. This certainly is the case on "Rules of Change" and "Workin' Man." The latter is a rambling story about an Indiana farmer, his seeds and how Monsanto apparently screwed him over in court. Musically, Young benefits greatly from his collaboration with Promise of the Real. The young act from Los Angeles is adept at recreating Crazy Horse's ramshackle, country-rock stomp.
