CD Reviews

Intended for easy listening - great vocal with good lyric
80's music fan | Los Angeles, CA | 01/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sorry, I could not agree with some reviewers that this is an inferrior & lifeless album from Neil Diamond.This album might have only one hit single 'Heartlight' but other songs are also very good.Each song in the album is melodious and has good lyric in it.I like the songs now as I used to like 16 years back when I bought this album in casette.Apart from slow and sentimental pop numbers like 'I'm guilty' & 'Fool for you', it has some catchy fast paced tracks like 'Starflight', 'Comin Home' and 'I'm alive'.Also rest of the songs 'Front page story', 'In Ensenada' are quite enjoyable.If want to enjoy some good music with great vocal accompanied with thoughtful lyrics, this is the right stuff for you.The album worths your money."
Some Of "Neil Diamonds" Best Workmanship

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Neil Diamond has long been one of my very most favorite artists. I Feel that "Heartlight" was overlooked and under-rated for the most part. If You as I do appreciate the totality of the songs and lyrics you select.....then you'll be very pleasantly surprized with "HEARTLIGHT"; and it will strike all the right cords in Your Heart too!!!!!!!!!"
Neil's last truly great album of original material
Vincent | Livermore, CA | 12/21/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Until the release of his box set "Stages," virtually all of Neil's later albums were mediocre at best. This album is quieter, more melodic and less abrasive than Diamond's subsequent releases making heavy use of synthesizer and guitar picking. I also enjoy Ron Tutt's style of drumming much more than longtime drummer Dennis St. John's stale, tired, routine playing. There is nary a bad track on this album, possibly his most underrated one, and I was glad to hear that even people who gave it bad reviews still liked the tracks entitled "Front Page Story" and "In Ensenada." They are my two favs as well and really wish he would do a live version of them."
