Call it the Dream Team of Grunge. Young, godfather of the genre, takes one of his periodic breaks from his back-up band Crazy Horse and enlists Pearl Jam as his supporting cast. Eddie Vedder & Co. have looked to Young as a sage and mentor since 1993, when they played on the same concert bill. Young has written all the songs here, but Seattle's reigning royalty-in-ripped-jeans provides him enough explosive garage-band fuel to blow the doors off most rockers half his age. And he does.
