Storytone (Deluxe Version) (2014)
Been a fan of Neil since the 1970's, owning 53 of his releases (not including CSN&Y) so when a new album is released I just buy it (collector syndrome), must admit his best days have passed, therefore I wasn't expecting too much.
The deluxe version has 10 songs over 2 mixes, first edition is a solo version & the second edition has production with orchestral, big band and backing group remix.
The Solo tracks reflects the sound of a melancholy Neil with some cutting protest lyrics, e.g. - Who's Gonna Stand Up? My fav track.
Review of Storytone - Solo version is a major surprise, superb lyrics with minimal instrumental input, doing what NY does best since the 60's.
After my 2nd play I actually said out loud Brilliant!
My rating for the solo edition - 4.95 Neil's best record for years.
As for the redux, it does work, enjoyed it all.
