125 Simon & Garfunkel – Bookends

We discuss what makes this a concept album or maybe just a half a concept album?

“Bookends’ problematic, disillusioned themes, sometimes disguised in wry humor, striking arrangements, and augmented orchestral instrumentation, portray the sounds of people in an American life that they no longer understand, or understands them. In just over 29 minutes, Bookends is stunning in its vision of a bewildered America in search of itself.” AllMusic Review Thom Jurek
