5.0 out of 5 stars Simon and Garfunkel at their creative peak, 3 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Bridge Over Troubled Water (Audio CD)
Bridge Over Troubled Water marks the highpoint of the duo's creativity. While still nourishing their folk roots (The Boxer), they were unafraid to embrace world music (El Condor Pasa), a sign of things to come from Paul Simon. This leads to a richness of sound that complements their vocal harmonies fully.
From the soaring inspiration of the title track, to the cheekiness of Cecilia and to the relaxed lounging of So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright, they cover all the bases, never once sounding like they are uncomfortable with the genre they've picked.
Most of all, the album features Paul Simon's best ever songwriting (The Boxer, The Only Living Boy In New York), sympathetic and warm without the sentimentality that mars his solo work.
An essential buy.
