Prairie Wind represents both the best and worst of Neil Young. With the help of faithful collaborators Ben Keith and Spooner Oldham, it’s his return to the smooth, country rock sound of Harvest and Harvest Moon. It’s a quiet, reflective record haunted by the death of his father and his own head-to-head with mortality. (Young suffered a brain aneurysm while making the album.) And while certain songs gently reflect these sobering truths (“Fallin’ Off the Face of the Earth,” in particular, is a stirring track featuring Young’s wife Pegi among the singers), others come across awkward and overly sentimental. “When God Made Me” suffocates under its own spiritual weight; “He Was the King” is an Elvis tribute that falls completely flat. Simplicity does find its rightful place on “The Painter,” a basic declaration of artistic intent, while “”It’s a Dream” has a hazy beauty at its core. As a full-on concept album, Prairie Wind doesn’t quite come together, but the best of its tracks deserve full attention.
