Paul Simon’s son lives up to the hype
Division Street is Simon’s second solo album and the first he tried to make that he would actually listen to himself. I would agree that it is nice album to listen to; it’s good as background music while you’re doing work or anything really. All the tracks are all very similar, which I kind of liked. Harper Simon is Paul Simon’s son so it made sense that his music has a very similar feel as his father’s music. It has a real folk sound as his debut album did with a bit of a rock added into it that was relaxing. With the relaxing nature of this album there were not many standout songs but “Veterans Parade”, “Nothing Gets Through”, ” ’99”, and “Leaves of Golden Brown” are some that stood out to me.
