        Jarring to hear the fat Moog synth bass and spaceship sounds. Otherwise, some solid writing, guitar and harmony vocal work. "Mrs Robinson" is a classic.

        Very nice three-dimensional pressing with good dynamics. 3.5 stars plus an extra .5 for that great soundstage.

          I have a US 1968 pressing PC-9529 and I would like to know the exact month and how the mixing on this copy compares to other releases. Also, if you don't own a copy of this masterpiece, I will personally buy a copy and break into your home to give it to you. Thanks!

              Incredibly lively pressing. Nothing more to add. Or say. At all.

                Amazing album. I see this album/Simon & Garfunkel everywhere I go and I would usually pass them by with no thought but I’m glad I finally gave this album a chance. Just bought a mono copy!

                  I feel that experimental could be added to the style given the field recordings of the elderly and other aspects like the echoing sample of their own Sounds Of Silence at the end of Save the Life Of My Child. Any opinions?

                      The best album ever made. Paul Simon really came into his own in terms of his album storytelling here.
