It’s hard to believe this songwriting legend turns 70 this year. Paul Simon sounds invigorated, in fine voice and his tunes are as melodic as ever.

Lyrically he takes a wry look at the big questions – life, death and religion – but it’s wrapped up in a cool blend of folk, pop and world styles.

Opening track Getting Ready for Christmas Day sets the mood while Dazzling Blue reminds of the classic Graceland.
