5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Superb, 1 Dec. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Definitive Simon & Garfunkel (Audio CD)
I was prompted to listen to, and then go straight out and buy, this record by a friend of mine. All I can say, is that every single track is beautiful, utterly awe-inspiring, and magical.
Notable highlights are:
"Bridge Over Troubled Water", which is just totally and completely magnificent. I know this track has been praised and praised before, but it stirs very powerful emotion within me...I am sure anyone hearing it feels themselves taken away too.
"Song for Emily" - a song that now has a VERY special place in my heart, a touching piece that seems to define the meaning of love - the final lines "Oh, how I love you girl", look very plain written down, but when sung here, they make the spine tingle, and you know at once he MEANS it. Tremendous.
"Hazy Shade of Winter" Pure genius guitar work at play. An absolutely storming track, so immediate.....you already know all the words! Reflective, yet does not slip into sombreness - the sign of brilliant lyricism
I could just go on and on about this record, but, don't just take it from me....buy it, it is superb in every sense

You really think Cecilia is `beautiful, utterly awe-inspiring and magical`? Really! I`ve always loathed this pointless, lousily written, clodhopping song, and wish just once the CD ` best of` compilers would leave it off.
