2014 Deluxe 180gm 2LP Gatefold Original With Custom Hype Sticker On Shrink. Appears Unplayed. Features 10 New Compositions. The First LP Has Young Performing Some Tracks With A 92-Piece Orchestra And Choir, Others With A 60-Piece Orchestra And Three With A Big Band. The Second LP Contains Young's Solo Versions Of The Same 10 Tracks. “Storytone Sometimes Plays Like A Hybrid Of Harvest At Its Most Florid And The Bloozy Swagger Of This Note's For You -- A Curious Combination That Doesn't Seem Quite As Extreme On The Album's Second Disc, Which Houses Nothing But Solo Renditions Of The Record's Ten Tunes, But The Very Fact That There's A Reverse Image Of The Album Strengthens The Impression That Young Isn't Much In The Mood To Keep Things Simple. Which Is Odd, Because All The Original Songs Here Are Relatively Simple, Built To Withstand Simple Arrangements -- They Sound Fine When Young Supports Himself With No More Than A Guitar, Piano, Or Ukulele -- And They Don't Buckle Underneath The Weight Of An Orchestra. Versatile They May Be, But They're United By Young's Aching Sincerity. He's Earnest Whether He's Taking A Stance Against Fracking, Romanticizing His Old Car, Or Singing About New Love With The Dewiness Of A Teenager. The Open-Heartedness Is Sweet If Somewhat Adolescent, A Feeling Not Helped By The Preponderance Of 2014 Headlines About Young's Love Life, But Even Without That Tabloid Gunk, Songs Like "Glimmer" Have An Optimism That Sounds Just A Shade Disarming Coming From A Former Cynic Facing 70. But That's One Of The Glorious Things About Neil Young: He Surprises And By Delivering This Big, Sloppy Valentine To Everything He Is And Everything He Loves, He's Not Being Neat But He Is True To Himself.” – S.T.
