Rather disappointing

Art Garfunkel's previous album, Everything Waits To Be Noticed was interesting in many respects—Art was openly writing lyrics and music and indeed produced some touching, not to say occasionally haunting, pieces, sung together with, the perhaps somewhat anonymous, Maia Mondlock and Buddy Sharp, creating a record that definitely is among his best. (I'm not that much of a Jimmy Webb fan anyway.)

After that his latest, Some Enchanted Evening, is a letdown. It is a collection of ear candy, beautifully sung to be sure, but it blazes no new trails. Come on, you've shown that you can do better!
