CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Bridge Over Troubled Water, at its most ambitious and bold, on its title track, was a quietly reassuring album; at other times, it was personal yet soothing; and at other times, it was just plain fun.

American Songwriter

Few would argue that an album that includes “Cecilia”, “Keep the Customer Satisfied”, “The Only Living Boy in New York” and “The Boxer” is anything but great.

Pitchfork
Perhaps because it never addresses their restlessness or any particular social issue too directly, the album proves both visionary and revisionary, as the two ponder both their own and their country's past while looking ahead to new musical adventures.

an orgasmic collection of some of the best songs of all time by one of the best duos of all time. i doubt that this will ever be topped by a similar artist.
fav tracks: cecilia, the boxer, the only living boy in new york

This was a great exercise in seeing whether it's just overfamiliarity which makes me dislike the well known tunes like the title track (bleeeuuurgh) and 'Cecila' (dear god) so much...nope, they're some of the best here, most of the rest is actually even worse (how is that possible?).

Wish I didn't find them so nauseating but you know how it is.
