Pretty underrated album in my opinion. Some of his best material on here and in general very consistent. If you'd take Graceland away this might be his best...

First album I listened from Paul Simon. My dad loves it. Yes, it's easy listening, but I find all of the songs nice both lyrically and musically. I only find Loves like a Rock out of place, maybe it wasn't the best choice for a closing track.
My favourites: One man's ceiling..., American tune, Kodachrome.

A personal favorite. My first Paul Simon album. It seems to me to that the songs just float (in a good way). Two great examples are the fade outs on 'Take me to the Mardi Gras' and 'One Man's ceiling. . . '

There goes rhymin' Simon, is a very good album, but like a lot of Paul Simon records there's always a bit of filler on there. Still, rhymin', contains some of Simon's greatest songs. Kodachrome, is great, as is, loves me like a rock, and, American tune, but best of the lot is, something so right, my all time favourite Paul Simon solo song. The rest veers from good to ordinary. St. Judy's comet, is good, and, tenderness, is nice, but, was a sunny day, is a throwaway reggae number, and, learn how to fall, is okay. A good album then, just not consistent enough to be a genuine classic.

Solid. On par with Paul Simon. If you like his stuff, there's lots to like here. If you are skeptical, stick to Graceland.

Paul Simon always had a great melodic pop ear and displays those talents here, bet showcased on "kodachrome", "take me to the mardi gras" and "loves me like a rock".
