I wish I loved Neil Young's new album, Fork In The Road. I heard most of the songs last year when he played Madison Square Garden, I didn't love them, and I haven't changed my mind much about them.  It's a topical album and very of the moment, but I don't think it's as good as, say, Living With War.  It's more on the level of Greendale.  I do like the title track, "Get Behind The Wheel" (although it's a rip-off of Tom Waits' "Get Behind The Mule") and "Light A Candle." But if you get the CD/DVD version of Fork, the DVD has Neil's live cover of The Beatles ' "A Day In The Life." It's very ragged and glorious, and worth the extra two or three bucks.
