Progrography

Paul Simon
Every five years or so, Paul Simon emerges from his cocooned existence to release a new album that invariably advances the argument for him as his generation's most articulate songwriter. You could argue the point was already made within the confines of Simon & Garfunkel, but that was just a stage of his development. He continued to develop as a solo artist, culminating in the African pop hybrid of Graceland. There are reportedly a couple of stinkers in the Simon catalog, but I haven't found any yet.
