This is a cd which I keep in the car for long distance journeys. Great beat to reenergize me for driving distances.

I'll try not to mention Graceland too often in this review. My one star review is not based on how unlike Graceland this sorry collection of dreary background music is. I understand what Paul Simon was trying to achieve with this album. Using South American musicians to create an ethnically-diverse collection sounds promising. It worked with the African and Cajun-filled Graceland album. The problem I have with this is that Rhythm Of The Saints lacks any memorable tracks, melodies or memorable lyrics. The lyrics are often self-indulgent and cryptic. The musical backings inexplicably often drown out Simon's vocals, which only adds to the misery. Mood music? To be judged as a whole album, creating an "atmosphere" rather than showcasing radio-friendly singles? Okay - I can accept that. I own several Latin-styled albums that are much more entertaining and listenable than this. Rhythm Of The Saints is, in comparison, dull and boring, a wasted opportunity. I had to play Jerry Lee Lewis after this to wake myself up.

For anyone expecting another Graceland, forget it! This album seems to have been put together very quickly because of Graceland's success. All the songs on this album are pretty much the same...spell that BORING! Lay down a rhythm track in the background and have Paul ramble in his non-melodious style. What's worse is that on this recording, Paul sounds like he's singing in Wrigley Field without a mic. His voice is overwhelmed by a tedious rhythm track. No...not all rhythms from other parts of the world is interesting, especially when the tempo and texture is all the same from one song to the next. Graceland gets 5 stars...this one gets ZERO if I could.

Paul Simon followed up the classic Graceland, his fusion of African and Western pop music with this stunning album of great songs with a South American and more particularly Brazilian flavour. This reissue includes three previously unreleased racks.

The Obvious Child is my favorite, a powerful melodic song with great drums and guitars and a wistful, nostalgic feel. Another favorite is The Coast, a story about a family of musicians taking shelter in a church; this song really impresses with its flowing melody, polyrhythmic drum patterns and moving lyrics.

Proof is another charming pop song, particularly noted for its evocative backing vocals and gentle, lilting rhythm whilst Further To Fly and She Moves On are more subdued, melancholy numbers with bubbling and insistent rhythmic patterns.

The mood lifts with the uptempo and buoyant Born At The Right Time, once again a lyrical and musical masterpiece and filled with catchy hooks. The guitar and atmospheric backing voices of Spirit Voices are beyond compare whilst the title track is a meandering piece with innovative instrumental flourishes.

What makes these songs particularly moving is that Simon tells the stories of ordinary people and that his perceptive, poetic lyrics are carried so well on the exotic instrumentation. Of course, the beautiful tunes have a lot to do with that. Rhythm Of The Saints may not be as immediately appealing as Graceland and may not offer quite as many classics, but it remains a major achievement, a brilliant marriage of Brazilian and Western popular musical styles.

Absolutely incredible!!! As perfect as a soft breeze during a warm summers night. I wait till spring every year to bring this album out of my collection an into my c.d player and once I do it never leaves! When I first heard this c.d I had just fallen in love with Paul Simon's Graceland months earlier and I kept comparing it to that. Now years later there is no comparison. Graceland is fantastic and easily one of my favorite albums, but The Rhythm of the Saints is so much more. It's an overwhelming feeling of peace and relaxation, but it also has a mysterious and hypnotic quality. I urge you to buy this album and give it a chance, and I hope, like the perfect drug that it is, transcends you to another place!

Best album I own (and I've got quite a few!) Not sure where to start. The music is sublime, the lyrics are brilliant and no matter how you feel it makes you feel better. I like most of Paul's Simon's stuff, but it all pales beside this - a masterpiece of music, mood and Paul Simon's always-perceptive words.

This is my favorite album of all time, in part because it is one of a few albums that demands to be played as a complete set of music. From start to end, the combination of the tunes, lyrics, pace of the cuts and flow of the songs create a mood unlike any other. After repeated listenings over a twelve year period, I have never grown tired of album that is clearly more sophisticated than Graceland, its predicessor. The sound quality is very good. The album can be listened to explicitly, or turned on in the background. With respect to the other reviewers, it's not "like" anything else. It stands alone.
