A.V. Club

The mix of force and finesse is stunning. If this is the kind of power a cleaned-up Young can conjure, here’s hoping he stays off the sauce a little longer.

Psychedelic Pill may be the best album Neil Young has ever done with Crazy Horse. It’ll take years to figure out.

80
Drowned in Sound

What really sets Psychedelic Pill out as some of Young’s strongest work in a while though are those other epic tracks, which deliver that expansive, explorative sound with some deeper voyages into the singer’s thoughts.

Under The Radar

Psychedelic Pill is as near to perfect as this lineup may record.

Pitchfork

There's enough life and fuck-you attitude left in Psychedelic Pill to remind a listener that "it's better to burn out than to fade away" wasn't necessarily about dying young, so long as you avoided phoning it in.

70
PopMatters

The record is an exercise in consistency, illustrating that delivering the formula that has always seemed to work for Young’s fans is safe but satisfying.

At its best, Psychedelic Pill is an invigorating, ramshackle, heavy beast. At its worst, it’s enjoyably daft.

It's the 'Neil trashes the electric guitar' album. 'Weld' in the studio. She's Always Dancing shines Like a Hurricane.

I really love this album. The 3 epic long tracks are great.
