Nine years in the making, Americana is a collection of essential American covers done Neil Young and Crazy Horse-style. Oh Susannah and Clementine become haunting in the minor key, while This Land is Your Land is sweet and warm with harmonies. Gallows Pole is country-esque, Wayfarin' Stranger has a subtly sung vocal, and Get a Job is a ragged rendition of the Silhouettes' doo-wop classic. Finishing with God Save the Queen, whose last line is "Let freedom ring!", and released during the jubilee, seem like no accident.
