Jem Aswad Executive Editor, Music Maybe it was the chilly temperatures, steady breeze and light spatterings of rain, which take a toll when a person is standing outdoors on an elevated platform — like the stage of a concert venue — for two hours.

Or maybe it was just an off night. But the feverishly passionate reviews for the first dates of Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s “Love Earth” tour — their first in a decade — bore little resemblance to the band that plodded through its set Wednesday evening at the second of a two-night stand New York’s Forest Hills Stadium.

And the fact that they were plodding through a stunning setlist of songs from the peak of Young’s illustrious career only made it worse.

Neil, of course, was fine — he possesses a superhuman energy and drive that has diminished very little as he nears his ninth decade on Earth.
