Uncut (UK)April 2011, Iss. 167, pg. 34 - 44, by: Allan Jones, "'Being a legend doesn't mean anything other than that you're old.' The new album by Paul Simon is called So Beautiful Or So What and is, he says, "a recapitulation of the whole trip that I've been on, my whole career". A good time, then, for a wide-ranging conversation with one of America's greatest songwriters about his long and extraordinary journey. Simon takes us from New York to London, from Kingston to Soweto. From his first adolesent songs, through the triumphs of Simon & Garfunkel and his early solo career, onto troubled movies and musicals, creative crises, the commercial and political dramas of Graceland, and his remarkable new collection of songs."
