So Beautiful Or So What

June 25, 2011

A few months ago Paul Simon's latest album was released. In my opinion it is one of his best.  So Beautiful Or So What  has all the the elements of of previous Simon works that we are familiar with, tuneful melodies, wonderful guitar playing, ethnic influence, and that sweet voice.  Much of the narrative in this album deals with the afterlife and getting older. He just seems wiser and comfortable in his own skin. I have yet to tire of it! Good albums linger, stick with you, move you. This is one of those. It has Grammy all over it.
