    The interplay between Young and Promise of the Real is great and dare I say, they somehow manage to out ‘Crazy Horse’ the actual Crazy Horse. This is a greatest hits selection worthy of Elliot Roberts’ 50-year friendship with Neil Young.

    It’s quite conceivable Noise & Flowers will convince aficionados as well as more casual listeners of the potency of these musicians as they collaborate in the spontaneity of the moment. In so doing, it may simultaneously join Hitchhiker (recorded in 1976 and released in 2017) as one of the highlights in Neil Young’s ever-expanding discography.

    What makes it great is something else - an energy and a vibe that give the strange sensation you're there with them. [Oct 2022, p.84]

    Eschewing Young’s work recorded with Promise Of The Real – or indeed anything written this side of 1995 – Noise & Flowers’ nine crowd pleasers offer exactly what that brilliant title suggests.

    Promise of the Real give Noise & Flowers the muscle the music needs, which means the album never sounds nostalgic or stiff: it's a warm celebration of the music made while Elliot Roberts stood by Neil Young's side.

    The album is more of a celebration than a wake, thanks to the Promise Of The Real’s youthful exuberance and Young’s own ageless spirit. [Sep 2022, p.32]
