Neil Young and Crazy Horse came roaring into the '90s astride a powerful beast named RAGGED GLORY. During this time, Young was being heralded as the "Godfather Of Grunge", and this album went a long way towards reinforcing this moniker. Never before has heavy guitar crunch swung in such a melodic and forceful way. With the slightest hint of a twang and some relaxed harmonising, "Country Home" chugs confidently along in contrast to the slash-and-burn explosiveness of "F*#in' Up". The subtle country flourishes abound on this record whether it's Young borrowing the title to the psychedelic hideaway "Mansion On The Hill" from a Hank Williams song or "White Line" giving an idea of what Williams might sound like if he had a stack of Marshalls. Having developed a solid chemistry from playing together for almost twenty years, Young & Crazy Horse's penchant for extended jams is reflected on the opuses "Love To Burn" and "Love And Only Love", both of which rank alongside other tour de forces such as "Cowgirl In The Sand". This muscular ten-song set ends with "Mother Earth (Natural Anthem)", an environmental tribute that is essentially a choral soundscape recorded live at the Hoosier Dome.
