album, "Living With War" (Reprise), was recorded and mostly written
three to four weeks ago and as of Friday can be heard in its
entirety free on his Web site, www.neilyoung.com, and on satellite
Mr. Young half-jokingly describes "Living With War" as his "metal
folk protest" album. It's his blunt statement about the Iraq
war; "History was a cruel judge of overconfidence/back in the days
of shock and awe," he sings, strumming an electric guitar and
leading a power trio with a sound that harks back to Young albums

sympathizes with soldiers and war victims, insists "Don't need no
more lies," longs for a leader to reunite America and prays for
In a song whose title alone has already brought him the fury of
right-wing blogs, he urges, "Let's Impeach the President." It ends
with Mr. Young shouting, "Flip, flop," amid contradictory sound
bites of President Bush.
