Harper Simon's debut album found him treading paths familiar to any Paul Simon aficionado and somewhat in thrall to his father's musical style (the album contains 3 co-written songs with Paul ).That said, it was a fine album, almost a throwback collection, accomplished with subtlety and a gentle touch and overseen by the legendary Bob Johnston. However, at times Harper Simon seemed to be a man struggling to find his own individual voice.
Well, on "Division Street" he's found it although it might not be to everyones taste. From the uncompromising, amped up chords of the opening track, "Veteran's Parade" you know something's changed from 2010. We're in updated alt.rock territory with ringing guitars and a production which is at times so intensive and dense that it relegates the vocals to a place well down in the mix. It's not until "Chinese Jade" (track 6) that he takes his foot off the gas and allows a pause for breath but after the gentle "Just Like St.Theresa" (track 7), which gives away the family genes, he's off again with " '99", an effortless piece of breezy pop and one of the few songs on the album to make an instant impact.
Stylistic comparisons with Elliott Smith are difficult to avoid on parts of the album (producer Tom Rothrock worked with Smith) and some people might count that as a positive but the influence can equally be seen as too pervasive with a tendency to distract attention away from the excellent quality of the songwriting.
This is an album that requires a number of plays before it gives up its treasures to the listener, but make no mistake, treasures they are !

Your either going to hate this new direction or love it.
All I can think when I listen to this is that he has changed his style too much from his rather good first record,maybe he thought he had to?
Gone are the soft tones of his first record and his more famous dad which so enamoured me to him.
Most of the songs are ruined for me by a horrible drum `noise` banging away and it seems like Harper is another who has fallen victim to the loudness wars,also his vocals are well down in the mix, he sounds like he's singing in the room next to the studio especially on the title song "Division Street."
Although things do pick up slightly on "Eternal Questions" mainly because the chorus is pretty catchy it is still spoiled by the music!
Sometimes on here i am reminded of The Connells especially "Breathe Out Love" which has a nice jangle guitar,if only he had more like this on here I might have liked it more.
A very disappointing follow up spoiled by horrible `modern` production values.

Having previously purchased Harper's first CD I had expected more of the same. The first few tracks though were a complete change to his folksy roots. Very heavy rock. Later on in to the CD though and he reverts back to what he was like on first CD.

I bought Harper Simon's first CD, which I love. Division Street gets better and better the more I listen to it.

Heard one track on the radio - obviously the best one of the album. DJ's raved about - said how much like his dad he sounded - extolled the virtues of the album. Waited with anticipation for its arrival. Played it while we ate dinner - once. Others might like it but it just didn't "float my boat" and I have pretty wide musical tastes.
