You’re The One

By Bryanne Miller

Some may hear Paul Simon’s You’re the One and be disappointed by its slightly languid manner.

But those truly devoted to Simon will not compare this album with his past ventures, such as the 10-year-old The Rhythm of the Saints.

The fact is, it’s still Simon, just older and at a different stage in his life. He has reached a state of absolute calm and demonstrates his wisdom and experience through familiar storytelling techniques evident in the 11 tracks.

Songs such as "That’s Where I Belong" and "Love" comfort one with their quiet charm and beautiful melodies. Simon is easy listening.

He may be 59 but on You’re the One, Simon is still the one.
