"The Boxer", plus some of their other most popular songs, gradually attracted me to Simon & Garfunkel. I never liked "Bridge Over Troubled Water" though and I was disappointed when I found out it was by them, as it doesn't sound much like their usual stuff. And yet it's a pretty cool song and album title. As for the remaining, shorter songs, most of them I don't think much of, "Cecilia" and "Bye Bye Love" seem a bit regressive, even if they did feel indebted to The Everly Brothers. I like "El Condor Pasa"(I'm partial to traditonal Andean music now) and "The Only Living Boy in New York", but the remaining songs, I can barely remember.

Sometimes I feel I've heard all of humanity's greatest popular albums.
This was happening last week until this fuckin' record! Wow!
They were at the top of their game. Both Simon's compostions and Garfunkel singing/harmonies are uber good!
The production, the sound and the arrangements are insane!
Glad I was completely wrong!

Vocal harmonies as smooth as warm melted chocolate drizzled over a baby's bottom.

These two defined how folk-duos sounded for decades to come, "Bridge Over Troubled Water" is by far their best work. Paul Simon compositions here are outstanding, and world music was starting to born in "Cecilia".

Nonostante io non sia mai stato un fan di Simon and Garfunkel, resistere alla bellezza di questo disco mi è sempre stato effettivamente difficile. Ciò che, per me, lo rende migliore di altri loro dischi è la qualità delle singole canzoni, ovviamente, ma poi anche una sobrietà maggiore nel far trasparire i loro ben noti buoni sentimenti.

A collection of really amazing songs with just a couple of less amazing songs.

This album will bring you to tears then make you jam out in a matter of minutes. Surprisingly a lot of variety for a S&G record.
