This is not the Neil Young you have known since the days of Buffalo Springfield or Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young or even Crazy Horse. This is – unlikely as it may sound – The Godfather of Grunge fronting a 92-piece orchestra and choir. Storytone, which arrives Nov. 4, is the 35th studio album by this Canadian singer-songwriter and his second of this year. Not bad for a rocker who turns 70 about a year from now. The album is actually two different recordings of the same songs: one with the orchestra and chorus and the other just simple acoustic versions. 10 cuts for $14.99 on iTunes.
