Ooh, new Paul Simon album released this week. It's been 5 years since his Eno collab. Anyone listening to this?

It's worth the price. I need to listen more before I can say whether it's great or not. Nice polyrhythms and a lyric about building a home with your true love on "Dazzling Blue." The sound is swampier than I've heard in other Paul Simon albums, but otherwise it's similar to his last few albums. The old-timey preacher sampled on "Waiting for Christmas Day" reminds me of something I've heard before. . . .
