New band, new causes - but rock’s favourite guitar-toting curmudgeon keeps the rebel faith alive & kicking.

For this guitar-centric, full steam-ahead & highly-charged ecologically/environmentally-focused rock album, Young is joined by Promise of the Real, an LA-based rock band fronted by willie nelson’s sons Lukas & micah. They provide the crazy horse upon which young rides into battle against gm food giants Monsanto & pretty much every totem of corporate power & political apathy. From tough opener  ‘a new day for love’ onwards, you feel entirely at home; ragged glorious guitars, the eternal battle between optimism & rage, a set of preoccupations young has explored relentlessly since ‘greendale’, ‘living with war’, even ‘rockin in the free world’, played with the unique rock ‘n’ roll looseness young mastered circa ‘tonight’s the night’. “the album’s nine songs share their rough-hewn country-punk qualities with young’s liveliest studio recordings” 8/10 – uncut.

*includes making-of dvd.
