Listing Detail Tabs

After half a decade of pop superstardom, America's favorite folk-rock duo were just about ready to go their separate ways (at least Simon was), but not before releasing this gem of a swan song. Possibly S&G's most diverse album, BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER firmly established them as creators of pop standards on a par with Irving Berlin or Johnny Mercer. The title tune alone, a beautifully unfolding gospel-tinged vow of emotional commitment, places them in the pop hall of fame forever.

The story obviously doesn't stop there. Foreshadowing Simon's solo work, the jubilant love song "Cecilia" and the poignant, yearning "El Condor Pasa" both turn to the traditions of other cultures for musical inspiration. The highly metaphorical "The Boxer" is the only real throwback to Simon's more self-conscious early work. The transcendent production of "The Only Living Boy in New York" puts a pop sheen on an early example of Simon's nascent Randy Newman influence. What a way to say goodbye.
