      By JON PARELES

      Neil Young unleashes a digital broadside today. His new
      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
      radio networks.

      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
      like "Rust Never Sleeps" and "Ragged Glory."

      Some songs add a trumpet or a 100-voice choir, hastily convened in
      Los Angeles for one 12-hour session. During the nine new songs he
      sympathizes with soldiers and war victims, insists "Don't need no
      more lies," longs for a leader to reunite America and prays for
      peace.

      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.
