  • A big, bombastic synth-rock album by Neil Young? Linn drums? Synth bass? Coming, as it did, immediately after Young settled out of court with a record company that had sued him for making non-commercial records, LANDING ON WATER could easily be seen as not only the oddest of Young's mid-'80s streak of oddball records, but also as a big joke, the punch line being, "Here's your commercial album, Mr. Geffen. Have fun selling it."
  • Or maybe he actually means it: "Hippie Dream," whose chorus goes, "The wooden ships/Were just a hippie dream," puts a bullet through the memory of his old folkie buddies Crosby, Stills & Nash. And while "Pressure" does a pretty good imitation of Billy Joel's synth-rock hit "Pressure," it's followed by "Drifter," which manages to put a bullet through the much more recent memory of David Geffen ("Don't try to tell me what I gotta do to fit") while effectively updating an ON THE BEACH-ish blues structure for the electronic age. In short it is, despite all appearances, a Neil Young album, and it foreshadows the giant rebirth that was about to come.
