Neil Young: Under Review 1976-2006 (2007)

*** (out of 4)

This follow-up to NEIL YOUNG: UNDER REVIEW 1966-1975 picks up with the album American Stars and Bars and continues all the way up to Prairie Wind. All of the albums in between are discussed by critics, fans and other music experts as they shine the spotlight on this period in Young's career. Johnny Rogan, John Einarson, Clinton Heylin, Nigel Williamson, Dave Zimmer, Bill Friskies-Warren and Barney Hoskyns are the folks interviews as they share their opinions on Young's albums and various artistic moves he made. Many fans have attacked both of the films in this series since they are unauthorized but I think they're being way too hard on them. Sure, these aren't definitive documentaries and yes Young had nothing to do with them but as a fan I'm always interested in hearing what others think so this documentary offered up some nice opinions to listen to. I think this is the weaker of the two films but this could be due to the fact that the previous film deals with more major work from the legend. This one here has some interesting debates about Young's influence or lack of on punk rock and then him being looked at as a grunge god. There's also talk about all of the albums, even though a few of the 80s albums are just glanced over. The album "Trans" gets some debate going on as some considering it the worst album in Young's career while one tries to defend it. While there's certainly nothing ground-breaking here I do think fans can enjoy it for what it is. This is just a group of opinions so if you're interested in what others think you could enjoy this. If you just want Young's music then there are plenty of other concerts and documentaries out there.
