Joe Henry's 'Scar' (2001) and 'Tiny Voices' (2003) are two of my favorite records from the last 10 years. So I'll be the first to admit that I might be approaching his new release with unreasonably expectations.
Neil Young is hearing voices again. They speak, and Neil follows their commands. This time they've convinced him to release the sequel to an unissued album from 1977. Only Neil Young releases a sequel to a record that never came out.
