Me either SizzlininIN. Matter of fact, I'm the first one to the volume knob or the channel changer when I hear that voice, but again, this new release is supposed to be nothing like the old Neil. I've only heard a few seconds of clips so I can't judge.

Not a Fanilow - but some good 'old' humming/toe-tapping music. I still like "Lola" (or is it Copacabana?), but don't care for him. Recently saw both on tv. It is a little depressing, or funny, to see the oldies with teased hair trying to warble out a tune. Or was that Neil Sedaka? (sp) j/k Still prefer the oldies tunes re Fanilow & the Diamond. Gimme the Stones any day. lol

Okay, that is a whole different ball of wax - No, I haven't heard Neil's latest cd - but I love him! PDSWife - I also saw him in concert - worth every last penny!

We've seen him twice now.. and I'm ready to see him again!!!

Neil Diamond is a great performer. I wish I had the opportunity to see the guy in concert. All I have is a mpeg of Will Ferell playing Neil on SNL. BUT.... its funny!

It's a great cd...seriously, even if you aren't a fan, you may enjoy this disc.
This is some serious pour your heart and soul in the music, music.

My favorite band, Phish, covers a few of his songs. There is nothing like hearing a jam band rock out to Cracklin Rosie.

I do like Neil though, even though I am in my 30's . the guy does have talent. I don't think I will ever be buying any of his CD's, but if I am flipping through radio stations I might stop on one of his songs from time to time.

I got to see NW about a hundred years ago in concert (I was in my early 20s) and he was fantastic! Love him still!
