Like many of the grunge musicians he went on to inspire, Neil Young has a conflicted relationship with his own success. The five albums he released for Geffen are easily the most experimental in his discography, with Young swerving from one musical lane to the next. Intrigued by the idea that his son could learn to communicate through technology — and inspired by bands like Devo and Kraftwerk — Young threw himself into a synthetic new sound, laying Synclavier overdubs on top of rock instrumentation and singing through a vocoder to symbolise his attempts to communicate with his son.
Trans is quite possibly Neil Young 's strangest album, and one of the hardest to find; it's one of the few Neil Young albums that's out of print in the US. With Trans , Neil Young explored synthesizers and vocoders, rather than his standard style of folkish rock. To placate his record company, though, the first and last songs " Little Thing Called Love " and " Like An Inca " are in the standard Neil Young style -- the rest of the album, not so much.
