Young's excitement on the new album is real. It recalls his commitment to movements like No Nukes in the late seventies or Farm Aid a decade later. On "The Monsanto Years" the old rocker rages against everything and everyone, is not afraid to name names. The most prominent are Monsanto and Starbucks. "Monsanto and Starbucks: Mothers want to know what they feed their children" is one of the words in the song "A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop".
Only a few weeks before the release date, Neil Young's new album was announced, which he recorded not with Crazy Horse, but with the L.A. band Promise Of The Real, in which two sons of country veteran Willie Nelson were involved. It is a concept album that deals with the destruction of the environment by the greed for profit of large corporations.
