Shakey Fest: Neil Young Trunk Show

“There’s a sense of synapse-sparking whiplash to the proceedings, especially in the discordant way the numbers—electric and acoustic, old tracks (‘Cinnamon Girl’) and new (‘The Believer’)—are cut together. TRUNK SHOW gives you the profound impression of wandering within an unhinged psyche, most notably during the band’s 20-minute thrash through ‘No Hidden Path,’ from Chrome Dreams II. Young seesaws maniacally around the stage, the music surging and regressing with exhilarating unpredictability, the end seemingly never in sight. It’s an unholy tantrum that Demme treats, quite rightly, like a miracle.” – Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
