Given that I am the egghead white father of two non-white sons, you might think I’d be a big fan of egghead white Paul Simon and his exploration (co-option?) of pretty much every non-white musical style ever invented. You would be wrong. (On the other hand, I had an Uncle Al and a Cousin Betty who were indeed “pals” and who both died prematurely, so the song about Al and Betty always brings a lump to my throat, for reasons Mr. Simon never intended.)
All good. Some of his recent music is very good. I’ve had it on a loop the past month.

I haven’t kept up since probably the early 90s (around the time he started doing Broadway). I’ll have to check out the more recent things. Thanks!
Some inconsistency. But if you listen enough, there’s plenty there to like.
