Are You Passionate? is the 24th 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.

The track "Gateway of love" is listed on the back cover, but not included on the album. The song has never been released but was played in concert with Crazy Horse during 28 of 29 dates of their Eurotour in 2001.[3] A bootleg recording of the performance at Sportpaleis Ahoy, Rotterdam (July 24th, 2001) exist where the song runs 8:36 minutes.
