COMMUNITY REVIEWS

One of Simon’s best submitted by spostjacobs on August 26, 2018, 11:39pm While _Graceland_ deservedly is the most acclaimed of Paul Simon’s albums, _Rhythm of the Saints_ is also an incredible recording. Simon collaborated with many Brazilian musicians, along with some of the South African musicians featured on _Graceland_. The result is a rich layering of many musical traditions. Especially worth listening to are: the drum sections of “The Obvious Child” and the quiet loveliness of “Spirit Voices.” “The Coast” is one of my favorite songs.
