Trans is the twelfth studio album by Canadian musician and singer-songwriter Neil Young, released on December 29, 1982. Recorded and released during his Geffen era in the 1980s, its electronic sound baffled many fans upon its initial release-a Sennheiser vocoder VSM201 features prominently in six of the nine tracks

Trans - двенадцатый студийный альбом Нила Янга, выпущенный в 1982. Часть его была записана в 1980 годы, тяжелый период в творчестве Янга, когда он сотрудничал со студией Geffen. Trans озадачил многих поклонников Янга Список песен

Although it is listed in the line-up on the back of this record and on the lyric innersleeve, the song 'If You Got Love' is not on the record itself. While this is all very strange, what I find MORE bizarre than an album almost full of Neil Young singing through a vocoder are the tracks placed A1 & B1. They are NOT vocoder synth pop tracks.

When it was released, Trans was Neil Young's most baffling album. And even when you read the words, "Computer Age," "We R in Control," "Transformer Man," "Computer Cowboy," and "Sample and Hold" seemed like a vague mishmash of high-tech jargon. A few more conventional Young songs (left over from an earlier rejected album) seemed out of place.

Neil Young told MOJO magazine that it was his handicapped son who inspired most of the album, The life of both and the one after it – Trans – were sucked up by the regime we’d committed ourselves to. See, we were involved in this programme with my young son Ben for 18 months which consumed between 15 and 18 hours of every day we had. It was just all-encompassing and it had a direct effect on the music of Re-ac-tor and Trans. You see, my son is severely handicapped, and at that time was simply trying to find a way to talk, to communicate with other people

With Young, one learns to expect the unexpected, but this record is as drastic a break from career form as David Bowie’s kiss-off to his Thin White Duke persona with Low. And twice as surprising, too, because Young, despite his penchant for shifting gears from record to record, has always sunk his roots deep into the good earth, the fertile loam, of the American singer songwriter tradition. Throughout this album, as well as on Rust Never Sleeps, Live Rust and reactor, Young has been stumping on behalf of the musical New Wave and the technological Next Wave. In Like an Inca, however, he sounds like he wishes he were living in any time or place but the present, and the glories of ancient civilizations fill his imagination with longing: I wish I was an Aztec Or a runner in Peru/I would build such beautiful buildings. Neil Young is really still a sweephand clock in a digital world, a solitary quester after truth.

This is what I wanted to do in the first place, and then the record company made me put it out without the videos, because they didn't believe in the record. Last week, Neil Young reunited with Crazy Horse at intimate Fresno and Bakersfield gigs, his first performances with the band in four years.
