"What the f*** am I doing writing about Aztecs in "Cortez the Killer" like I was there, wandering around? 'Cause I only read about it in a few books. A lotta s*** I just made up because it came to me."-Neil Young
1975's Zuma's reputation rests almost solely on one song, "Cortez the Killer," which is a sort of "Freebird" for the cooler set. If you haven't heard it in a while, you might be surprised that it runs a modest 7 and a half minutes, even though Young and many other bands have stretched it to epic lengths. So how's the rest of the album. It's good, but after an incredible 6 year run, which included "Everybody Knows This is Nowhere," "After the Gold Rush," "Harvest," and "Tonight's the Night," it can't help but be a little underwhelming. It's mellower than some of the Crazy Horse stuff and not very jammy. Again, it's good, but Young had set the bar pretty high for himself. Crosby, Stills, and Nash show up on one track. I think a stoned van mural artist did the cover. Followed by his albums with Stills, "Long May You Run."
