If Neil Young has a pronounced weakness, it’s a lack of focus. Restless to a fault, he’s apt to rush into the recording studio without fully forming his ideas. Sleeps with Angels is that kind of album–and yet it’s one of his best. Jarred by the death of Kurt Cobain (the rock & roll martyr quoted Young in his suicide note), he dashed off this collection of songs in 1994 with backing from his steadfast electric warriors, Crazy Horse. At least two songs–the title track and “Change Your Mind”–seem to directly refer to Cobain. Others–“Driveby” and “Safeway Cart” among the most striking–are mesmerizing and gloomy. Still others–“Piece of Crap,” “Blue Eden”–are raw and cutting. Goes to show an elegy, no matter how somber, needn’t be a hushed affair. –Steven Stolder

    From the opening toy piano on My Heart all the way through the the meloncholy plea for peace on the closing tune ” A Dream That Can Last, this is a definitive Neil Young record and should be in every fans’ collection. Neil always includes an extended saga and the song Change your Mind is the choice here. At over 14 minutes it has the guitar action, the wit of Young’s writing and the support of more than capable musicians. Some would say that ” Piece Of Crap” doesn’t belong in this collection and maybe that would be true, but the story he tells and the evocative cry of “PIECE OF CRAP” you know that it does, This is a GREAT record and deserves much more praise than it gets. Very Highly recommended!Read more

    This album is very different; in one way, it’s very tuney, but in another way, it’s dark, haunting, and somber. We get a mixed bag with this album featuring Crazy Horse. It has a folk sound, but also has the signature Crazy Horse guitars that rattle and hit hard. I guess that this album can appeal to all Neil Young fans–not just those who prefer a certain era or backing group. This album shouldn’t be missed; it has a little of everything. Standout tracks include PRIME OF LIFE, DRIVEBY, CHANGE YOUR MIND, and TRAIN OF LOVE (which sounds like something from Harvest Moon). This is a 4 and a half star album. Gorgeous.Read more

    Neil Young comes through yet again on this disc that includes one number with a truly inspired extended-jam session, along with the title tracks and several other solid numbers. One of Neil’s best efforts and cohesively solid works, among many. I don’t love everything Neil has done throughout his career, but his explosive successes certainly outnumber the weak performances of many other singer/songwriters- this guy works hard, and he owns the craft!Read more

    This cd came out and just vanished, forgotten. Luckily, I picked it up a short time later to fill out some of my Young collection. It’s a 5 star affair with the showcase song ‘Change Your Mind’, one of Neil’s brilliant songs from the 90s. Songs like ‘The Prime of Life’ and ‘Drive By’ grow on you after a while. Don’t miss out on this great cd.Read more

    Sleeps With Angels THIS ALBUM WAS NOT GIVEN A LOT OF GOOD REVIEWS BY THE CRITICS(?).MAYBE THEY ONLY LOOK AT SONGS OF SO-CALLED COMMERCIAL VALUE…. MY TAKE ON THIS (AND THIS CD ) IS MOST “MIDDLE OF THE ROAD” POP MUSIC IS CRAP,SO LISTEN TO A SINGER-SONGWRITER WHOSE LYRICS AND MUSIC MEAN SOMETHING.THAT MY FRIENDS IS NEIL YOUNG…AND ALTHOUGH THIS ALBUM WAS NOT ONE I HAD ‘TIL RECENTLY…IT’S GREAT!!AFTER NEIL RE-INVENTED HIMSELF WITH FREEDOM,AND RAGGED GLORY,IN THE LATE 80’S AND EARLY 90’S,SLEEPS WITH ANGELS MAY NOT HAVE CONTINUED THE SAME VEIN,WITH THE DIVERSION OF GRUNGE IDOL,KURT COBAIN’S UNTIMELY DEATH NO DOUBT A REASON FOR THIS CD. MY HEART AND PRIME OF LIFE ARE TERRIFIC BALLADS,DRIVEBY,A BIT OF A COMMENTARY OF LIFE,AND OF COURSE HE DOES HAVE AT LEAST TWO TRACKS TO COMMEMORATE THE SAD PASSING OF A TROUBLED MUSICIAN,STARTING WITH “SLEEPS WITH ANGELS” AS HE DOES,NEIL THROWS IN AN UP-TEMPO PIECE ABOUT SOCIAL INJUSTICE (PIECE OF CRAP),AND THIS DOES SHOW HIS MANY MOODS ,BUT MOSTLY HOW HE HAS LIVED AND LOVED LIFE,AND STAYED RELATABLE FOR 30 ODD YEARS. LONG MAY HE RUN!!Read more

    A mio parere “Sleeps with Angels” è un ottimo album. Inoltre lo trovo estremamente sottovalutato. Ci sono pezzi incredibili per me: – Driveby (ballata splendida, per me a livello di Heart of Gold) – Sleeps With Angels (pezzo “noise” di grande impatto) – Change Your Mind (lunga jam younghiana, quasi 15 minuti di strofe e assoli) – Trans Am (ballata spettrale, i cori dei crazy horse sono da brividi) – A Dream That Can Last (pezzo finale con un clavicembalo straniante) Neil Young ha saputo sperimentare ancora stili e suoni diversi, pur rimanendo sé stesso, ovvero grandissimo. La copia che ho comprato mi è stata venduta da un venditore terzo di amazon. L’ho comprato usato per 4 euro (spese di spedizione incluse). CD e libretto in buone condizioni.Read more
