Editorial Reviews

In a remarkable career spanning six decades, singer-songwriter Paul Simon has amassed 9 Grammy awards and has been inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. The first occasion recognized has brilliant work as one half of Simon & Garfunkel. Simon's second induction, in 2001, heralded his equally massive contributions as a solo artist and composer. The songwriter's solo catalog is one of the most diverse, literate, adventurous, and musically rich in all of popular music. Today regarded as one of the greatest composers of the rock n' roll era, Simon is an American treasure, now celebrated by these five expanded and remastered classic albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars Passion , humor and genius. January 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
What are these other reviewers listening to? I wonder what they would say if they lived with this music for a little while. I will be the first to admit that Paul Simon's music can be uneven, but I don't see that with You're the One -not at all. The humor of Old, the passion of Love, the conversation style. You gotta give it at least a three for those alone. But I certainly don't need to defend one of America's songwriting treasures. You will enjoy the subtlety and genius of You're the One.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I have a wisdom tooth . . ." May 30, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I simply don't understand how the reception for this CD was so poor.

While I admit I thought a few of the songs odd on a first or even third hearing ("Pigs, Sheep and Wolves" and "You're the One" namely), the lyrics are every bit as good as any of Simon's other works. Since purchasing the album I have listened to it well over 200 times and am blown away with how beautiful the words are.

"Nature gives us shapeless shapes
Clouds and waves and flame
But human expectation
Is that love remains the same.
And when it doesn't
We point our fingers
And blame blame blame."

"All the trees were washed with April rain,
And the moon in the meadow
Took darling Lorraine"

"You want to be a leader?
You want to change the game?
Turn your back on money
Walk away from fame
You want to be a missionary?
Got that missionary zeal?
Let a stranger change your life
How does it make you feel?
You want to be a writer
But you don't know how or when
Find a quiet place
Use a humble pen."

The lyrics speak for themselves. 5 stars. As few artists in the past 20 years has produced such lyrics, why would this album receive any less than 5 stars?

And this is not to mention the instrumentality, which is deceivingly simply--especially in "The Teacher."

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally interesting and beautiful November 2, 2008
By B. Kyle
Format:Audio CD
When this came out, I was really disappointed... kept thinking of Graceland and it just didn't seem to match up. But years later, I'm listening to it again and I find it very different but aslo really intriguing. I'm so glad I kept the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational genius. May 8, 2011
By mrw4085
Format:Audio CD
I loved this album, lyrically and muscially. Unusual in that it speaks to a person in middle age phase of life. Quiet has a profound depth that is really stirring, You're the One speaks truth about relationships that fail. Inspirational.

Paul Simon never disappoints. Like his other albums, he takes his musical wisdom into a realm that is uniquely "You're the One". Beautiful!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime. New Galaxy sublime. January 31, 2010
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to elucidate how one could rate a song higher than so many of Paul Simon's masterpieces such as "Emily, wherever..." "Some Folks Lives", "American Tune" (borrowed from a Bach chorale), "America" with Garfunkel, "Hearts and Bones", "How the Heart Approaches"....and many other unsung titles. But here I do that very thing; "Darling Lorraine","Senorita with a Necklace of Tears", "Quiet", "Love"...just to name four are transcendent masterpieces of sound and text, possibly his greatest. The poetry (aka lyrics) of most of the songs on "You're the One" is evidence of a songwriter's craft which is so far beyond anything else on the so-called Pop market, as to make the whole music business (an oxymoron) seem so crass, shallow, and bereft of those soul-strumming notes of literature which we miss if we love Shakespeare even slightly.
Half of this album is the best and most mature work of this profound artist's career. Purchase it, listen in a quiet room with no distractions, learn the words, let it open slowly and illumine your heart...it is a sublime creation full of love for the irony of life and conversely the beauty of whole of the universe....and by the way, the love of God. It is sublime again, like a view of a new galaxy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Darling Paul Simon July 19, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
How can someone be both plain-speaking and artfully poetic at the same time? How can music feel so simple and understated and yet subtly complex? Paul Simon manages to synthesize the ragged speech of people in love and pain as if spoken through gritted teeth with a child's lexicon, and he delivers it courageously without concern for whether it rhymes or is in syncopation; but weaves it into and out of the tempo and melody sometimes on point and sometimes on counterpoint.

This is both music that is easy and music that is not easy. Accessible because it is as common as blood and sweat. Inaccessible, because it comes from an incredibly creative musician and his equally creative colleagues as they take all the musical knowledge in their kits and blend it together to create something NEW and familiar.

This is a blessing. This is high art for the masses. This is a man using the creative gifts God has given him to nearly the fullest extent personal courage and the tools he has access to allow.

Paul Simon is an American Master. Enjoy.
