Apparently the bridge fell because this was the last studio album as a duo. Apparently Garfunkel was too busy to help out much with this album, and Simon had had enough.
There are a couple of songs on this album that address the situation. "So long Frank Lloyd Wright" is actually a so long to Artie who went to architecture school. It is one of the few songs on the album I really don't care for.
Simon had come into his own as a songwriter by this time. He was trying different things. Especially with Rhythm. He gives us a glimpse of the different styles of rhythm he will use throughout his career. He experiments with echoing drums here, and I think it causes the production to sound small, and tinny.
I think his songwritting is very good on this album, but I think it gets even better in years to come.
Garfunkel comes up with the performance of the album, and perhaps of the entire duos career with the title track. It makes you wonder what he could have done if he had applied himself better.
I give this album 3.5 stars out of 5
