Neil Diamond – Melody Road (Reveiw)

Filed under: Rock And Roll — J.S.L. @ 703p11

Melody road is a simple collection of songs that my dad says “seems to celebrate the history of one man’s life”. I would agree in that as usual the songs are story’s that Neil want’s to share and as with most of his songs the story’s do not need to be his own. Something Blue is the most radio friendly song and I dare you to not enjoy the simple and uplifting feel. The production is somehow rustic yet at times orchestral and complex. Neil’s voice is front and center in the mix thanks to the production of Don Was (Was Not Was) and Jackknife Lee. If you’re a Neil Diamond fan this is a great record from someone who “is” saying thank you and getting ready to say goodbye. If you don’t get why Neil Diamond is great by now… Open your mind remove all irony.

Buy it and say you’re welcome!
