Each one was made public on iTunes every week before the premiere of each episode, each featuring five songs. Vinyl received mixed-to-positive reviews from critics. The acting particularly Cannavale   and directing  were generally praised, while the writing and storyline, particularly in the later half of the season,  which many called "formulaic"  and "familiar",   were criticized.
The site's consensus reads: " Vinyl doesn't always keep the beat, dramatically speaking, but overall, it capably honors the rock pioneers of the '70s with absorbing stories, a spot-on soundtrack, and rich period detail.
Alan Sepinwall of HitFix gave the first season a B, writing that "there's an awful lot of excess in Vinylwhich perhaps makes sense for a show involving two icons of '70s rock in Jagger and Scorsese. But all of Richie's searching for the next idea, and all of the scenes involving the Nasty Bits or other rising forms of music, suggest a show that really wishes it could strip away all the glam and all the tropes and just do something simple and raw and powerful.
Still, every time the story falters, the characters' and the show's obvious love for popular music in all its forms lifts it back up. On the other hand, Emily Nussbaum of The New Yorker had a mixed response, writing that "the show improves slightly after the jankily paced pilot, but it never sheds its air of leaden nostalgia. There simply isn't much of one, in fact, and--abhorring the ever-present vacuum--a lot of other elements rush in to fill the void. Scenes are padded, lots of flashbacks are even more flaccid, while actors devour the helpless scenery.

He claims to be acutely aware of the difference, and compares it with taking a shower in tiny ice cubes versus ordinary water. Pono promised to present songs "as they first sound during studio recording". InRolling Stone listed Young as eighty-third in its ranking of "The Greatest Guitarists of All Time" although in a more recent version of the list, he has been moved up to seventeenth placedescribing him as a "restless experimenter Inhe bought a stereo version of the same vintage guitar from Stephen Stills, and this instrument is featured prominently during Young's early s period, and can be heard on tracks like " Ohio ", " Southern Man ", "Alabama", "Words Between the Lines of Age ", and "L.
It was Young's primary electric guitar during the Harvest era, since Young's deteriorating back condition eventually fixed with surgery made playing the much heavier Les Paul difficult. Young owns a restored Estey reed organserial numberdating fromwhich he frequently plays in concert. Young owns a glass harmonica which was used in the recording of "I Do" on the album Colorado. Young uses various vintage Fender Tweed Deluxe amplifiers. His preferred amplifier for electric guitar is the Fender Deluxe, specifically a Tweed-era model from The Tweed Deluxe is almost always used in conjunction with a lates Magnatone similar to the amplifier used by Lonnie Mack and Buddy Holly.
The Magnatone and the Deluxe are paired together in a most unusual manner: the external speaker jack from the Deluxe sends the amped signal through a volume potentiometer and directly into the input of the Magnatone. The Magnatone is notable for its true pitch-bending vibrato capabilities, which can be heard as an electric piano amplifier on "See the Sky About to Rain". A notable and unique accessory to Young's Deluxe is the Whizzer, a device created specifically for Young by Rick Davis, which physically changes the amplifier's settings to pre-set combinations.
This device is connected to footswitches operable by Young onstage in the manner of an effects pedal. As one of the original founders of Farm Aid —he remains an active member of the board of directors.
For one weekend each October, in Mountain View, CaliforniaYoung and his ex-wife hosted the Bridge School Concertswhich drew international talent and sell-out crowds for nearly two decades.
He announced in Junehowever, that he would no longer host the concerts. Rolling Stone magazine inranked Young thirty-fourth in its list of the greatest artists of all time,  and inincluded five of his albums in its list of greatest albums of all time.
While Young and Dylan have occasionally played together in concert, they have never collaborated on a song together or played on each other's records. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame explained that while Young has "avoided sticking to one style for very long, the unifying factors throughout Young's peripatetic musical journey have been his unmistakable voice, his raw and expressive guitar playing, and his consummate songwriting skill. According to Acclaimed MusicYoung is the seventh-most celebrated artist in popular music history.
Young's political outspokenness and social awareness influenced artists such as Blind MelonPhishPearl Jamand Nirvana. Young is referred to as "the Godfather of Grunge " because of the influence he had on Kurt Cobain and Eddie Vedder and the entire grunge movement. Young is cited as being a significant influence on the experimental rock group Sonic Youthand Thom Yorke of Radiohead. Yorke recounted of first hearing Young after sending a demo tape into a magazine when he was 16, who favorably compared his singing voice to Young's.
Unaware of Young at that time, he bought After the Gold Rushand "immediately fell in love" with his work, calling it "extraordinary". The members of the Constantines have occasionally played Neil Young tribute shows under the name Horsey Craze.

A running gag involves people encountering Tim in public and stating, "Oh, we always watch Tool Time Because of the numerous accidents in which he is involved, both on his TV show and at home, it is a recurring joke that Tim is on a first name basis with the hospital staff, and it is often suggested that Tim has special offers available to him for being a repeat customer.
Another gag is that Tool Time fans believe his many accidents are staged, to show people what not to do. However, many of Tim's modified inventions work but are often too powerful, like his new ice cube dispenser, his leaf sucker machine, his gas powered wheelchair and his gas powered Bring On The Boys - Karen Young - Bring On The Boys (Vinyl) disposal. Another running gag is Tim accidentally causing damage or destruction to anything he touches — such as destroying the world's smallest car or running over golf carts with a Marine Corps tank.
Tim has an unhealthy obsession with Halloween and Christmasgoing to extraordinary lengths to scare others and competing with "Doc Johnson" in the annual neighborhood Christmas lighting contest, which he only won once, although it was more a victory for the boys as they did the decorating while Tim was out of town.
He is also injured every year while working on the Christmas decorations. While Tim has a very good relationship with his wife, he is quick to admit defeat in any conflict they become engaged in.
He also works hard to maintain healthy relationships with his three sons, although he relates more closely to Brad than Bring On The Boys - Karen Young - Bring On The Boys (Vinyl) or Mark. Tim is occasionally chauvinistic in attitude, usually putting women down or sometimes seeing them as inferior but he often must absorb the same insults against men from Jill. A running gag is that every time Tim says something sexist on Tool TimeAl holds up a sign displaying the show's mailing address or in one episode, the phone number for the women to send in their complaints.
He also tends to mock those who are overweight, such as Al's mother or his mother-in-law until she loses weightand can be juvenile in attitude on many occasions. Another running gag involves Jill's distaste for his attitude, in that she says "You're pathetic" every time he goes too far. Many of the plot lines involve the teams and he often wears their memorabilia. He is also a big fan of boxingthe Indy Racing Leagueand tractor pulls.
Many scenes take place in the garage during his favorite hobby, working on one of his two hot rodsone of which he built from the ground up, and the other existing vehicle that he restored. While he occasionally considers moving on professionally, Tim remains the main host of Tool Time until the final episode of Home Improvement.
Before he was cast on Tool Timehe worked as a traveling tool salesman. Tim barely graduated from college, but later receives an honorary Doctorate from Western Michigan University. He often voices apelike grunts in a range of tones and inflections to convey emotions for comic effect, such as confusion, irritation, or pride. His mother is alive for the entire series, however his father died when Tim was eleven years old.
There has always been some disparity between how many brothers Tim has. On several occasions in the later seasons, it is mentioned that Tim has four brothers, but in earlier seasons he is stated to have five, however, seven have been mentioned by name MartyJeff, Rick, John, Steve, Brian, and Danny.
Tim always thinks things need "more power", and is often seen wearing sweaters from Michigan-based colleges. Tim thinks he knows everything there is to know about tools. He is also very connected to his tools even once joking that when he dies he would like to be buried with them. Tim is the only character to appear in every single episode. A close second is Jill, who only missed the second part of the series finale unless one counts the flashbacks shown.
Jill is intelligent, practical, and has a dry sense of humor that doesn't often fly with her family. After she decides that her career is not fulfilling, Jill dedicates herself toward earning her master's degree in Psychology. While she is very motherly and domestic in nature, she is apparently a very bad cook, as Tim and the three boys often make remarks about her cooking.
Her strong femininity is often in direct conflict with Tim's masculinity, occasionally leading her to wonder why they work as a couple. Jill comes from a strong military family, and sometimes uses her upbringing to solve several family squabbles.
Her father was a Colonel in the US Army and is referred to as such. Jill has four sisters, all of whom have appeared: Robin, Carrie, Tracy, and Linda. A fifth sister, Katie, was briefly mentioned by Jill's mother in the season 2 episode, "Much Ado About Nana", and in the season 4 episode, "Quibbling Siblings", but never again.
She often appears overwhelmed at the fact that she is the only female in a family with three sons and no daughter. She appears closest to her youngest son, Mark, as she remarks a few times that Mark is the only one who still has the ability to be open-minded to accept the things that Jill likes as opposed to being the typical "boy".
Early on, she has a temporary job working at a magazine, and later in the series, Jill is a psychology student. She also does a significant amount of volunteer work, especially for the local library. Jill has a strong feminist side and enjoys operatheatreand the ballet. She occasionally tries to be interested in sports and tools but always ends up relating to her husband over his buried sensitivity.
Jill also considers it her mission to get Tim, Brad, Randy, and Mark to do the right thing. Jill refers to any or all of her sons, as well as Tim by their full names when she is angry. Jill likes to "match-make"with mixed results, as she did set up Al with Ilene, who were together for a few seasons, and Wilson and one of her professors in another successful relationship.
She also has a thing for cars — driving at different times an Austin-Healey which Tim hates because he doesn't understand British wiring and a cherry red Chevy Bel-Air Nomad ; in two memorable episodes, Jill is furious with Tim for driving her Healey without permission and for wrecking her Nomad. Bradley Michael "Brad" Taylor Zachery Ty Bryan — born January is the oldest, most athletic and strongest of the three boys, once seen throwing Randy around when they got into an argument.
While all three boys are portrayed as troublemakers at one point or another, Brad gets into the most serious trouble. He is the only one to have a run-in with the police after throwing bricks at windows in an abandoned greenhouse and was once discovered in possession of marijuana, which he admitted to smoking. On the other hand, Brad was the only Taylor son to co-host an episode of Tool Timeand the one seen doing the most extensive work on Tim's Hot Rod, and is the son to which Tim relates to the easiest.
Although he often struggled with his school work, he has extraordinary athletic ability, especially playing soccer. Throughout the series, he was offered numerous opportunities to make a career out of soccer, including the offer to play for a professional team in England the fictitious Birmingham Chubbs. This was rejected when his parents refused to allow him to give up college to play professional soccer.
Later in the series, despite a knee injury which threatened to put an end to his athletic pursuits, he earned a college scholarship to UCLA. Brad has a prominent attraction to women, including his mild infatuation with Tool Time 's Heidi Keppert.
Brad and Tim enjoy working on classic cars. Brad got along well with Randy, especially early on in the show. The two are often seen working together to tease Mark, attempting to cover up Brad's actions to keep him out of trouble, or just hanging out together. Brad and Mark don't share many things in common until they get older, especially in the 8th season where they develop a close bond while Randy is away in Costa Rica.
Randall William "Randy" Taylor Jonathan Taylor Thomas — Randy born February 8, is the middle child, ultimately the smartest of the three boys, and frequently the most mischievous and especially sarcastic troublemaker.
Randy's intelligence eventually led to him skipping ahead to advanced math and science classes, and was often the cause of sibling rivalry with Brad. Randy inherited Tim's talents as a jokester. Randy in the later seasons is noticeably a lot shorter than his Bring On The Boys - Karen Young - Bring On The Boys (Vinyl) and his height is often made fun of by Brad.
Whenever Tim was in trouble with Jill, Randy was always there with a quick remark that would almost always get him in trouble. Although initially sharing mostly the same interests as Brad and his father, throughout his adolescence Randy became very conscious about the environment and civil rights.
He became very skeptical of the intentions of organized religion, especially Christian denominations, and became a vegetarian in later seasons. He wrote for the school newspaper, where he concentrated on social and political issues, including criticizing Binford for its pollution record, which led to a fierce disagreement with Tim and Tim's boss.
Unlike Brad who dated many different girls, Randy, for the most part, only dated one girl, Lauren, whom he remained with for the rest of the series. Randy is generally the most level-headed son in the family, although because he is an intelligent boy, he was also prone to arrogance, jealousy, cynicism, and sometimes a little prejudice.
His father has a tendency to dislike and mock anything he has no interest in, such as ballet and opera, and Randy inherited this attitude, which ironically puts him at odds with Tim, since Randy has no interest in cars and tools.
Out of all the Taylor boys, Randy is the one with the least respect for his father. He once called his father's show "Fool Time", and compared his father to an ape. During high school, he wrote a school article that turned many adults against Tim for Binford's pollution record, threatening his father's reputation, and he bitterly disapproved of Brad's jockish article earning the paper's front page, which was usually occupied by Randy's articles.
He does however mend his relationships with them after learning the error of his ways. Unlike Tim and Brad, Randy is not good with his hands and does not enjoy working on crafts or the Hot Rod. Instead, he often relates more with his mother, with whom he shares his intelligence and enjoyment of acting. In the Eighth Season of the show, Randy leaves for Costa Rica along with Lauren, who stayed in a nearby townreappearing in only one episode when he came back for Christmas.
On that occasion, Randy felt that so much had changed in his absence that he no longer fit in with the family, although confiding in Wilson aided his feelings.
Early on in the show, Brad and Randy were portrayed as "partners in crime". While they did argue like normal brothers, they generally bonded over their mutual enjoyment of teasing Mark. As they got older, they grew apart somewhat, as Randy became more focused on school and social issues and Brad became more focused on athletics and girls.
