By Barron Laycock HALL OF FAME on August 25, 2000
Format: Audio CD
Carly Simon straddled the world between folk and pop music in the early 1970s and gradually emerged from the shadow of other folk titans to become a pop singer of verve and moment, earning herself a place in the pantheon of very successful singers like Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, and a number of others like Carol King who were on the pop charts and in the folk clubs earlier in their career. This album, released after a long absence from the scene in the mid-eighties, represented her re-emergence onto the scene after the break-up of her long stormy marriage to James Taylor. And was this ever a smash, with several hits, including "Coming Around Again", which was specifically written for the soundtrack for the movie "Heartburn" starring Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep.
Yet there are also a number of other interesting, provocative, and beautiful selections here, including "The Stuff that Dreams Are Made Of", a song that also received a lot of air play, and "Two Hot Girls", a racy sexy song about two thirty-something women out "looking for love". My personal favorite here is "Do The Walls Come Down', a plea to keep the passion in a love affair as the two get a little too familiar to keep the mystery going, and also the finale of "Itsy Bitsy Spider", which starts out school-kiddish but segues into a reprise of "Coming Around Again", giving a feeling of a completed journey on the album and a nice sense of artistic closure to the song cycle. "Coming Around Again" was her very successful vehicle for regaining her audience and popularity, which she used to great advantage in the years since. It is one of her best and most autobiographical confessional albums, and it gives us an interesting vantage point with which to understand her better. This is a great album by a maturing artist who is often under-appreciated. This is one I heartily recommend. Enjoy

A delicious blend of Carly's amazing voice and rich imagery. From the hauntingly sad "Coming Around Again" to the sparkling "Two Hot Girls (On A Hot Summer Night)"..."like crystal and pennies...", this album is a beautiful lyrical and musical achievement. Carly glows! Includes the beautiful, classic "As Time Goes By" ~ joyous celebration of resilient love and time honored romance. Rich with emotional honesty about the complexities of vulnerability and hope as well as disappointment and hurt. Eloquently balanced. Highly, highly recommended.

I've listened to Carly Simon's records since 2000, and I know nearly every one of her songs by heart. "Coming Around Again" was Carly's supposed "comeback" and "hits" record -- her last few albums, sadly, didn't get the exposure that it so richly deserved.

Carly employs a few guest artists/songwriters here -- Stevie Wonder, Bryan Adams, and the late Michael Brecker. Michael plays a rare synthesizer instrument on the song "Do The Walls Come Down." He also plays a very mean saxophone solo on "Two Hot Girls (On A Hot Summer Night)". He would continue to guest solo on more of Carly's songs until 1993.

The title track is a nod to Paul Samwell-Smith, who was responsible for producing Carly's 1971 mega smash LP, "Anticipation." I love how the drum programming sounds too. Carly urges a potential lover that she wants him to give ALL of himself -- and not HALF of anything -- in "Give Me All Night." On the cover song, "As Time Goes By", Stevie Wonder plays an even meaner harmonica, but it's so very sweet-sounding at the same time. And it sounds like only the way that HE can play it!! :)

"The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of" is another important song. It starts out lush and quiet, but by the end of the song, it completely explodes into a full-on choir! Now who can resist that, folks?? :) "All I Want Is You" is my second favorite song on this record. Carly sings to her potential lover that he shouldn't worry about the neighbors or what anyone else thinks about their love for one another, i.e. that nothing else really matters.

The last song, "Itsy Bitsy Spider", is a playful spin-off of the title track.

You know the stereotype about Carly Simon--talented, intelligent, sophisticated and a bit of lightweight. Not a genius like Joni Mitchell (oh, please!). Well, I'm here to tell you that she's been underestimated by the critics and by a good many in the general public too. This album, her 80s comeback, demonstrates a keen intelligence and genuine musicality.
Another standard line about Carly is that her vocals waiver in quality. I used to maintain the same thing, but can you imagine anyone else doing justice to "Coming Around Again." And what a classic Carly Simon song that is, well, sung wonderfully and with genuine conviction.
"Coming Round Again" was her post-break-up-James LP and some of the tracks have an edgy, bitter feel. There's an ironic commentary at the end of her version "As Time Goes By" that undercuts the romance of the song. And "Do The Walls Come Down" is rueful. Other songs, including the title track and "The Stuff that Dreams Are Made Of" express the hope of renewal and of new love. But an air of melancholy reigns throughout.
The tentativeness of some of Carly's vocals matches the emotionally tentative state she so often describes. It makes her work all the more touching, her insights on male/female relationships all the more genuine. I like this woman--and I like and respect her music.
