Video: Neil Young – “Angry World”
Aww yeah, Neil’s getting weird again. The first thing you hear is a vocal loop, then two crunchy Gretsch parts from a distorted White Falcon, and then Neil’s voice: “Some see life as a broken promise / Some see life as an endless fight / They think they live in the age of darkness / They think they live in the age of light / It’s an angry world and everything is going to be alright.” No drums, no bass, nothing but Neil. The lyrics aren’t as subtle as we could hope for, but at least they’re not stupid. I’m excited about the new album, Le Noise, due September 28 on Reprise (WMG).
