Guess what? I love Neil Diamond. My mom loves Neil Diamond, and it should be surprise that her favorite music rubs off on me. I even listen to Barry Manilow and Lionel Richie! Anyways, guess what? This lover of Neil Diamond was able to listen and review Melody Road before it comes out! I usually rate each song, but there are 13 (yikes!) songs on this album so I think I will give just a general rating. Sound good? Okay. Here we go -
I have heard, ever since I was little, quite a few Neil Diamond albums (thanks to my mom), and this one did not disappoint! After listening to all 13 songs, I can tell that the man in this album knew where he stood in live - and love - and where he didn't. I already have a few favorites like Melody Road, Sunny Disposition, Nothin’ But A Heartache (especially since I recently had my heart broken). Some I didn't care for like Alone At The Ball and Seongah and Jimmy. I give the whole album a 4.5 out 5. Glad to see he’s back with new music!
