While the choice of songs on this album can be reasonably questioned,there are a lot of great songs on "Negotiations & Love Songs".
"Kodachrome","Loves Me Like a Rock","50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" are three standards that are included.
"Late in the Evening" is there too. (Joe Walsh fans will recall the song as one that he covered).
For Paul Simon fans this collection may not be the best, but it's not bad either.
I like having it around for the handful of songs that I really like.

Good overview that is in need of revamping
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This replaced Paul Simon's Greatest Hits, etc. Sadly that does not make for an improvement. That album covered less ground with more tracks. Hence this replacement suffers not only from omissions, but Paul's odd selections. Where are An American Tune, Take Me To The Mardi Gras, Duncan, and Gone At Last? Second, why is Have A Good Time on this?Lastly, the CD is an abridged version of the album, resulting in the dropping of one of Paul's biggest hits, and his favorite recording--Graceland. When the CD first appeared, the maximum length was less than 70 minutes. Now, CDs can fit over 79 minutes of music. Why hasn't Warner Brothers remastered this and restored the song?Finally, Paul likes to edit his works. Mother and Child Reunion and Loves Me Like A Rock lose 20 seconds each.Warner Brothers has yet to remaster any of their artists catalogs. Make Paul Simon your first, and give this best-of a needed facelift!"
A great CD the whole way through

"Paul Simon is a much revered member of the music community and has been for a long, long time. "Negotiations & Love Songs" is a great example of WHY he deserves the praise that he has showered upon him. The 16 tracks on this CD showcase not only Simon's immense talent, but also his versitility. Be it the soft beauty of "Something So Right" or the upbeat synthesizer from "You Can Call Me Al" Simon shows he knows how to write a catchy pop song. Simon's beautiful lyrics can range from moving ("Slip Slidin' Away") to hilarious and rowdy ("Late In The Evening"). I reccomend this CD to anyone who loves great pop music, and for Simon fans it is a must."
