*Shrugs...it's okay, 25 December 2004
Author: InjunNose from Alabama

This concert film had some fun moments, but it never felt like a full-fledged Simon and Garfunkel reunion. Simon's solo numbers (which make up slightly more than half the set) all get big, lush arrangements, while the S&G songs sound spare and sloppy and tossed-off. What a shame. The duo does shine on 'Mrs. Robinson' (a great opener) and 'Bridge Over Troubled Water', as well as on Simon's then-fairly recent 'Late in the Evening'. Unfortunately, Garfunkel gets to perform only one of his solo songs, 'A Heart in New York'. It doesn't help matters that, up until the last several numbers of the concert, these old friends seem pretty tense around one another. If you're a fan of Simon and Garfunkel or of Paul's solo career (or both), you'll enjoy "Concert in Central Park" to some degree. Still, you'd be much better served by getting the "Old Friends Live On Stage" DVD that was just released. The duo was spectacular throughout their 2003-04 tour, and the concert on the new DVD (well, the set is actually culled from *two* concerts) is much longer.
