The new album Living With War is excellent. Go listen to it.
A couple of interesting things I found while reading up on the site:
- Journalists must take care when re-writing or clarifying their interviews, otherwise they might end up with the original quotes matched up against their re-write, like this. Blogging on the internet is changing the balance of power between authors, subjects and readers. These are interesting times.
- Young kept waiting for a younger songwriter to do the big anti-Bush protest album, but nothing was happening. It looks like the Idol and manufactured pop-star phenomenon has taken over so completely that nothing controversial is said for fear of offending a consumer.
Pearl Jam are releasing an album next week, we can hope it matches Young’s (which is really really good).
