My copy is enroute. I am excited for this release. Don't spook the Horse!
Can't stand his politics but love his guitar licks. An extremely underrated axe man.
I agree about the politics. I don't mind that he has strong political views, many of which I agree, but I prefer my music and politics separated. This is not to say there is no place for politics in music, but I prefer the subtle approach. Bob Dylan was very political, but his wording and phrasing made it more poetry than political rant. Neil is not very subtle, at least not anymore. One thing to say about Neil is that he cares a lot about the future of our country. I can't fault him for caring, but I do get tired of the rhetoric. He hasn't made any interesting music in a long time (IMHO), probably because he's let his politics take the front seat.
62 bucks for almost 9 hours of music doesn't seem like such a bad deal when I often pay close to that for one MFSL release with 40 minutes of music. I have a hard time making the time commitment to listening to big vinyl box sets though, it's much easier to digest in chunks streaming it. Still listening, only 80 some songs to go.
