Opening Up A New World Of Music

Paul Simon took an unusual turn in his musical career with the release of Graceland. The many African rhythms on this record are quite creative. In addition, the use of the accordion, bass, and brass arrangements are quite captivating.

Of course its the vocal stylings of these talented African Musicians that really knock the whole thing home. How about the harmonies on the I Know What I Know track? What spirit, it sounds like Paul recruited some true songbirds for that track. Homeless is especially creative as the acapella groove just feels right.

The singles-Boy In The Bubble, You Can Call Me Al, and Graceland probably have the most captivating tunes. But this release stands tall on style points as the International appeal of this record is far reaching and very influential.
