Whilst being a very good piece of music, like the majority of crossover style music there appears to be someting missing here. The music is well recorded, produced and arranged with many influences being heard, it can at times be too well produced. This is not to say it is bland, but could be doing with more fire!! Still, I have been listening to this since it came out so it cannot be all bad!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 27 July 2002
Whilst not a great fan of Graceland, to me, this is a masterful piece of music. The lyrics are excellent with an incredible amount of longing, passion, soul and heart poured into each song. To me, and this is only personal, this is Paul Simons best ever album, far surpassing Graceland and desrved to be a hit originally and should be in very music lovers collection.
as I said, excellent!!

This is one of the best pieces of music I have purchased!! This voice is phenomenal and the opening track conveys so much emotion!! He could be reading from a telephone directory but I do not care!! The instrumentation, production and arranging are all top quality, Damon Albarn listen to this before making another cross over album!!
Absolutely magical!
