New Neil Diamond album; what I've heard I hate... 14 Years, 4 Months ago  
It's the trendy thing to like but it's awful; so lazy.
The hooks are repeated again and again in each song. When he started 40 years ago each was original and just once or twice per song.
I heard one track on R2 at the weekend with some REALLY irritating rhymes (I think it was TABLE and UNABLE but I've erased it from my memory).
Nothing worse than a past-it old singer trying to revive the sound of his youth with a "fan" type trendy producer who knows where the photocopying machine is.
For God's sake learn... artistes grow and develop.

Even without your post there, I wouldnt have liked to hear it anyway.
Is it as bad as Tom Jones Loaded?
That was awful.

Surely he does not need the money - but does need the kudos, maybe?

I like Michael Caine`s view on similar, which is that you have make some crap films to keep you going to the next good one , financially.
The thing is, with Neil Diamond, the ego is obviously such that his projects on the side have never existed.
As I have read here, that this new album (Forever in Pooed Jeans) ,smacks of lazyness.
But I really do not want to hear it, give me a Bill Shatner cd anyday, now there`s a guy that knows what his public think of him and plays up to it.

I've only heard a couple of his new tracks but I liked them.

how strange 14 Years, 4 Months ago  
that an album picking up 5* reviews around the world, produced by Rick Rubin (who saved Johnny Cash)should be compared to the travesty that is Tom Jones.

What Rick does is says, forget fashion, forget marketing, here is a man who has talent. let's see if it floats.I would have thought that was noble enough
