Reviews:

''Living with War'' is a 2006 Grammy and Juno Award-nominated studio album by Canadian musician Neil Young. The album's lyrics, titles, and conceptual style are highly critical of the policies of the George W. Bush administration; the CTV website defined it as "a musical critique of U.S. President George W. Bush and his conduct of the war in Iraq". Written and recorded over the course of only nine days in March and April 2006, its lyrics are in line with the early 1960s albums of folk artists such as Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan, though it is set to what Young calls "metal folk protest music" courtesy of Young, bassist Rick Rosas, drummer Chad Cromwell and trumpet player Tommy Bray.

The Cromwell and Rosas rhythm section and "Volume Dealer" co-producer, Niko Bolas, were also at the core of Young's 1989 album ''Freedom'', itself largely an angry criticism of Reagan-George H.W. Bush America. There are other links - Bray also performed on ''Freedom'' and ''Freedoms hit single "Rockin' in the Free World" also contained a quote of ''a'' President Bush: "a thousand points of light". - Wikipedia
