Curmudgeonly: Neil Young's guitar playing, or strangling, as it were … He plays OK rhythm guitar, but as soon as he tries to play a solo, it's like he's being electrocuted.

An otherwise great song, ruined by a sloppy guitar solo. "Cinammon Girl" is another one. Neil plays one note during his solo. One friggin' note …
