CRITIC REVIEWS

90
PopMatters

Americana is, finally, Neil Young’s best and most complete record since 1994’s Sleeps With Angels

88
Paste

Hard-charging, insistently keeping the beats, this is traditional American music set on stun. 

75
A.V. Club

Equal parts stopgap, warm-up, and crusty homage, Americana doesn’t take its subject matter, or itself, too seriously. 

70
Consequence of Sound

On Americana, Young is constantly sculpting and shaping the material at hand, creating and manipulating meaning whenever possible.

61
Pitchfork

In Young's hands, the most totemic songs in pop history become more flawed and, as a result, more down to Earth.

No other americana songs cover album could amount to this creatively. Crazy Horse and Neil milked these standards for every ounce of worth.
