Neil Young

Wrecking Ball

Composed by Neil Young

Song Review by

Another slice of the drug culture on the Freedom album, "Wrecking Ball" is another song that fits into the portrait of the drug-addled street life of late-'80s America. It's a tender love ballad, illustrating the weakness of a couple lost in their drug abuse. The melody is one of Young's most beautiful and tender, and underlines the vulnerability of the song's doomed characters.
