10.Home Before Dark (2008)

“HOME BEFORE DARK……once again, this is Neil Diamond at his BEST. We, his fans,have loved his music for almost 5 decades, and I continue to be amazed at the quality of his sound, his melodic voice, awesome lyrics, and he ain’t too bad to look at, either, for a 67 year old man. This album is definitely a 5 star masterpiece, that any Neil Diamond fan will want to add to their collection. He continues to sell out arenas on tours, and this “Home Before Dark” tour will be no exception.”

9.Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show (1969)

“This album is quite interesting and has come out in 26 versions.The original album had a gatefold cover depicting two men,one on the Travelling Show wagon and the other sitting nearby on the ground ( different than shown here).It has 12 tracks but subsequent versions had the hit “Sweet Caroline””

8.The Jazz Singer (1991)

“It’s wonderful to be able to listen to these great songs on my cell phone now. There are songs like Love On The Rocks, Jerusalem, On The Robert E. Lee, America, Hey Louise, and other songs. I highly recommend it especially if you liked the movie.”

7.You Don’t Bring Me Flowers (1978)

“Probably one of the Top 10 ND tracks he re-records this classic with Barbra Streisand and it is fantastic. I wonder why they never did any more duets since they both recorded for Columbia. Neil had done this song solo on a previous album but this classic duet his the one that soared to the top in the Easy Listening chart.”

6.Jonathan Livingston Seagull (1973)

“My favorites of all of his works is definitely Jonathon Livingston Seagull & The Jazz Singer but truly; there are so many songs I hold dear….This CD is a walk down memory lane and gives me great joy to listen to it now…I’m older, a little wiser….the meaning has changed because I’ve lived more so it means more….God bless Neil Diamond, God bless Amazon for providing such great music & artists; past & present…and God bless all of us who listen….”

5.Serenade (1974)

“Personally I think this was one of Diamod’s best CDs all songs are great. Got it in perfect condition.”

4.Tap Root Manuscript (1970)

“This was a break away from any of Neil’s previous work and light years away from “Cherry, Cherry”. No teenie bopper music here. This album is Neil’s best work. It is an original piece of work. A result of his genius creativity. The music on this one still pleased my ears over 45 years later.”

3.Beautiful Noise (1976)

“Excellent songs, he’s in great voice, Robbie Robertson does a great job producing, and the addition of The Band’s organ maestro Garth Hudson to several songs is brilliant. Got your normal powerful, emotional songs here….got the gospel tinged influence.. got your up beat rockers…then a Caribbean/gospel flavor in “Surviving the Life,” Dixieland/New Orleans flavor on several, and a very cool–almost experimental–pop-jazz number in “Street Life.” I wish I knew why he didn’t stay in this groove, which shows so much variety, but I do own a handful of Diamond albums/CDs, and each one is its own treasure. This is one showing a multi-talented artist and singer songwriter blooming in ways unimaginable.”

2.Moods (1972)

“There is nothing on this album that is not catchy, intelligent, playful, sentimental and incredibly likable. Two hits songs “song blue” and “play me” have been in Neil Diamond’s playbook since 1972. “Walk on water” is right in the vein of that gospel feel that Neil loves. “Porcupine pie “and “Gitchy goomy “in the wheelhouse of the lyrical fun that is typically Neil. “Captain sunshine”, “Morningside, “canta libre” are the eloquent, melodic songs that we’ve all come to enjoy. This album is very underrated and it’s probably one of the best, if not the best album made by Neil Diamond.”

1.Stones (1971)

“This is a solid pop lp. 3 iconic hits here & the rest are very good. Neil was right when he described his music as “theatrical” pop. i can’t recall anyone as dramatic until the later coming of Bruce Springsteen.”
