The Capeman Is Far From Super, Man,
This review is from: Songs From The Capeman (1997 Concept Cast Album) (Audio CD)
I give simon two stars instead of one because i respect the undertaking. artists should be allowed by their fans to explore new territory and try new things. a musical would seem natural for simon, who has always excelled at narratives and finding the point of dramatic tension in his lyrics. but i have to say, this cd is pretty horrible. a decent song here and there maybe, but that's generous. the songs are disjointed and insipid. i'm not sure how people could give this cd four or five stars, the same ratings that they would give graceland or his eponymous first album. it's not that good. it's not even close. if you can't resist the urge to buy this album, do yourself the favor of buying it used. the last time i checked, it was selling used for ten cents. that should tell you something in itself.

When a used album sells for ten cents, that tells me there's a high demand for it. When it sells for a penny, the demand is even higher. As of this writing, this album's selling for a penny.
