Echard roots his discussion in an extensive review of writings from the rock press as well as his own engagement as a fan and critical theorist, weaving together approaches from semiotics, ethnomusicology, and music theory. How is it that Neil Young is both a perpetual outsider and critic of rock culture, and also one of its most central icons? And what are the unique properties that have lent his work such expressive force? Echard delves into concepts of musical persona, space, and energy, and in the process illuminates the complex interplay between experience, musical sound, social actors, genres, styles, and traditions.
