EDITORS’ NOTES

On their final album, Simon & Garfunkel progressed beyond folk-rock, once and for all. The classic title track underpins Simon's openhearted lyric and Garfunkel's angelic vocal with massive, gorgeous orchestration. They visit South America on "El Condor Pasa/If I Could" and "So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright," and the Caribbean on the rollicking percussion workout "Cecilia." They even reclaim their '50s roots with a heartfelt Everly Brothers cover. Simon gets a touching moment on "The Only Living Boy in New York," an enigmatic view of the duo's impending breakup.

13 reviews? Really, earth?

It physically pains me to visualize an album by Nicki Minaj get hundreds of reviews, while this incredibly essential, classic, if not legendary masterpiece is simply forgotten by every shallow soccer mom and 14 year old in America.

I love these guys

I'm 14 and I listen to this album all of the time. I just hate all of the garbage that it made nowadays.
