PAUL SIMON: SURPRISE

After a slow complicated '90s, his music modestly accelerated into contemplation of life, the universe and everything, while becoming more fluent and flexible than ever. So, philosophical and funny. Take Outrageous: pontification about the wickedness of those who "line your pockets off the misery of the poor", suddenly spins around to notice "lt's outrageous for a man like me to stand here and complain." Such confident insouciance when addressing the big issues is only abetted by co-production from Brian Eno who subtly introduces the hard drive of machine beats where they'll do the old chap most good.
