Another really good Simon and Garfunkel album. Not as good as Sounds of Silence, but better than Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme. Standouts are Save The Life Of My Child and (of course) Mrs. Robinson.
Here Paul Simon begins to mature his songwriting, delivering some of his best contributions to folk music.
Damn I just don't know what it is, but Simon and Garfunkel just have a certain magic that no other artist has. From the heartbreaking lyrics of "Old Friends/Bookends" to the bouncy acoustics in "The Zoo" and "Mrs. Robinson," this album is beautiful.
La colonna sonora dei bravi ragazzi di un'intera generazione. Tutto bello e pulito; troppo pulito,per me...
Love Simon & Garfunkel and some of their very best material is on this album. But there's some definite filler here too.
''Kids have no respect for the law today ... and blah blah''.... Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Had to bump it up to a 7 after a few listens. "voices of old people" and "old friends" made me feel 30 years older despite the awesome string section at the end.
The uninspiring middle third of this album makes me feel so un-hip for listening and enjoying the rest of this album w/ some great tunes, but I see how it fits into the "bookends" theme of the album and so I appreciate the concept even if I didn't really care for the middle third of the album.
My personal favorite Simon & Garfunkel album
My third favorite S&G album is still a triumph. Their harmonies and experimenting is really unparalleled. Voices of Old People is for sure the weakest track but it's just like any other interlude on another album, i.e. it's not a song. It's crazy that all of the most prolific artists from this time period were in their 20s. Today we'd never let 25 year olds run rampant with this sort of artistic freedom. Times have changed but this album remains relevant and close.
Highlights: Bookends Theme, Mrs Robinson, At The Zoo, A Hazy Shade Of Winter, America
