Are You Passionate? is the twenty-fifth studio album by Canadian musician Neil Young, the only album to feature Booker T. & the M.G.'s, and his eighth with Crazy Horse, released on April 9, 2002 as a double LP and as a single CD. It represents Young's foray into soul music, not sounding like anything he had previously released. Exceptions are rocker "Goin' Home", recorded with Crazy Horse, and the brooding "Let's Roll", a response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The album ends with "She's a Healer", an extended jam.

On back cover appears the rocker track "Gateway of love" but not included on album. The song (with running time of 8:36 minutes with claps) was played in concert at least the -Tuesday 24th July 2001, Sportpaleis Ahoy, Rotterdam, Holland- with Crazy Horse. Bootlegs from this concert exists.
