AllMusic Review by

Neil Young's score for this film about writer Hunter Thompson (played by Bill Murray) consists of several fragmentary instrumental and vocal performances of "Home on the Range" played by an orchestra with Young on vocals, harmonica, and distorted electric guitar (amounting to less than ten minutes of music), plus a series of rock evergreens: "All Along the Watchtower" and "Purple Haze" by Jimi Hendrix, "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" by the Temptations, "Highway 61" by Bob Dylan, "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" by the Four Tops, and "Keep On Chooglin'" by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Also, Murray strangles his way through a torturous "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," and there is some dialogue from the film.
