|3.0 good||kheman1317 | April 16th 18|
The Sound of Silence is the only song that actually stands out and is one of my all time favorites. Apart from that, the album is pretty much mediocre with a couple of good songs but nothing phenomenal.

There isn't really a duo out there like Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Together, they made some of the greatest folk tunes the world has known, and remain easy listening and wonderful today. This, their debut record, wasn't exactly a roaring commercial success, but looking back, it is certainly a great album. The best songs here are written by Paul Simon, including "Bleecker Street", "Sparrow" and "The Sound Of Silence". Here, melancholy yet evocative folk is used at its best, with excellent lyricism all the way around. Other songs like "Benedictus" and "Go Tell It On The Mountain" are covers of traditional folk songs passed down through the years, as well as a cover of one of Bob Dylan's most famous songs, "The Times They Are-A-Changin'". Altogether, it is the excellent start of something fantastic in the folk world, and the start of one of the most recognizable duos in music.

Paul Simon wrote a lot of obnoxious, overly precious lyrics that taint even S&G's best work. His childish lyrics covered up only by guitar and neat harmonies, Simon's own bullshittery overwhelms him.

Those rehashes of the traditional folk songs sound pretty tired, but most of the originals really shine.
